[SOLVED] Nvidia 9800GT or better

Post by luggage » Tue Oct 18, 2011 10:28 am

Some software we are about to run at work calls for a system with an NVIDIA GT9800 with 512MB dedicated VRAM or better. I have been out of the loop a little while with GPUs now and sont understand the new naming mechanism! Can anybody translate that card name into modern money for me? Or does anybody have any recommendations? It will probably have to be a "cheap as chips" option whatever we do.

EDIT

I should add that the software explicitly states that ATI cards and cards with shared VRAM are not supported.

The 9800 Gt is near the bottom of the list with a score of around 900 so work your way up the list till you find one you like the look at (5500 ti maybe :) )

Just looked at the prices for the 9800gt (which is a series 9 card Luggs) and the prices are shocking, if the pc it's going in has a PCI-E slot, then you'd be better off with a 210, which is newer plus they are much cheaper. BTW, whats the software you need it for.

It is for autocad and some point cloud manipulation software called spatial factory. Ended up getting a 450gts which i think will fit the bill nicely, just wish it was on my pc instead of my work one. Also had to get a 2tb hdd for data so spent nearly £200 of someone elses money today :angel2:

Just wish he would get windows 7 x64 next.

I hope so, we will be looking to manipulate point clouds with billions of points, potentially covering distances of several miles. Fingers crossed!
