Best affordable video card to get: Quadro based vs nVidia
by dreamseven on Jun 26, 2005 at 5:52:27 am
Okay so my PCâ€™s specs are:
AMD Athlon 2000+ @ 1.6G
1G of RAM
Since my computer is more than a few years old I donâ€™t want to invest more than $200 on a new video card. I am leaning on the PNY Quadro4 280NVS AGP 8X 64MB DDR. Thatâ€™s the only Quadro based card I could afford for now. Will it be enough for video capture and NLE? There are Radeon and Nvidia cards with 128 or more DDR that are cheaper. Which way should I go?
I appreciate everything I have learned from this site and forum so far.

I doubt that there is anything you are doing that needs a Quadro card. Best thing to do is to look at the requirements for the software you are using. If it needs a Quadro card, they'll tell you. Otherwise, get a Geforce-based card. What is making you lean toward the Quadro NVS card?
