Help me justify the hassle of investing $200-$250 more for an FX1300 card:
A high end Geforce (6800GT 256M) card is approximatley $385. The Quadro FX1300 is about $650. Most on-line configurators for new pc's have the gamers oriented Geforce cards (more mainstream). So to order the machine w/out a video card, then order a 1300 separately, then install and configure...is somewhat of a hassle....all I'm reading is suggesting 1300 nocks your socks off....See the DIY $2000 dream machine ( http://www.videoguys.com/DIY2.html ) ...is it really worth it on a $2000 budget (no monitor) to go to $2200-$2300?
