Graphics cards

The most important part when building a gaming PC. Always go for the best card you can afford, it will define they way you see your graphics and how well a game runs. When choosing a graphics card there are two main factors, the Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) and the Memory.

The GPU Speed is mainly defined by the amount of stream processors it has - the more the better! Core clock speed also is important but no where near as important as the amount of stream processors.

Memory (aka VRAM) is defined by the amount of it, and again, the more the better. The more memory available the more textures can be displayed and the higher resolutions that can be ran. Generally 1GB is plenty which most cards are today so has much less of a performance impact than the number of stream Processors and clock speed. For multi monitor setups and 4K/Ultra HD resolutions you will need the extra memory so opt for a card of atleast 2GB, ideally 4GB or more.

All our graphics cards are of the following brands; Palit, Zotac, EVGA, XFX, ASUS, Gainward, MSI, Gigabyte, Sapphire, PowerColor, KFA2 and PNY (Nvidia and AMD/ATI dont actually make the cards themselves - They sell the chips on them to partners who then manufacture the rest of the card and market and sell them). Whilst the specification of each of the cards remain the same the brand may vary depending on stock and availability. The quoted specifications are the minimum you will recieve, we often supply machines with slightly faster factory overclocked cards with better coolers. If for any reason are concerned about a certain brand, feel free to ask what brand of particular card we currently have stocked and we can tell you (we only use the good ones hence our reputation) or for an additional cost we can source and supply specific brands and models.

It is also bearing in mind, there is no such thing as a "bad" graphics card, only badly priced ones! So if you cant find a specific graphics card in our range, its either out of date or badly priced! All of our graphics cards are capable of "HD" resolutions and more and will connect to almost any Monitor or TV. If you plan on using a monitor with a specific port which your new graphics card may not have then you can simply use an Adaptor which are available for around £2, however if you order a monitor from us it will come with all the appropriate cables/adaptors for connecting the two up.

Finally, to give you a rough idea on how one graphics card compares to another take a look at: http://www.videocardbenchmark.net/high_end_gpus.html. It offers a up to date list of how the latest graphics cards perform in a piece of software known as "passmark" which is used to simply benchmark a graphics card.

FAQ - Do i need to pair a AMD graphics card with an AMD CPU and a Nvidia Graphics card with a Intel CPU or vice versa? - No. You can mix and match any AMD or Nvidia graphics card with any Intel or AMD CPU. There is no advantage or disadvantage with a certain combination.
