15 Powerful Graphic Cards for Gaming, Videos, Animation, etc.

15 Powerful Graphic Cards for Gaming, Videos, Animation, etc.

Here is a list of few graphic cards which I think is best for gaming,video editing,animation,etc. They are not placed according to the ranks, just randomly. These graphic cards are best for those who want to spend less and want good performance.

(Note : Google for their additional information because if I do then this blog will be very long.)

1. ATI Radeon HD 5970
ATI Radeon HD 5970
This is one of the best graphics card in the computer industry. It has a twin pair GPUs that makes it’s the fastest and powerful in the world. This twin GPU powered beauty is capable of performing several instructions at a time. The GPU are packed on a single PCB thereby reducing noise and heat.

2. Nvidia GeForce GTX 480
Nvidia GeForce GTX 480
This one of the best examples of first generation Graphics cards built on Fermi architecture. The card is capable of handling complex instructions and geometrical models, when combined with Microsoft’s DirectX 11. Other features include Nvidia’s 3D Vision surround and ray tracing in real time. Ideal for gamers.

3. AMD Radeon HD 6870
AMD Radeon HD 6870
This is another offering from AMD. This card is driven by BARTS GPU. The card will fill the gap become between 6800 and 5000 series. The card introduces the AMD’s passive 3D technology and also supports HDMI output for Blue Ray DVDs.

4. Nvidia GeForce GTX 470

This is the most affordable high-end Fermi card that is available in the market. GTX 470 is the cut out version of its big brother GTX 480. The card supports a resolution of 1680×1050. The card has its clock speed of 607 MHz with 448 cores along with 1.2 GB of GDDR5 memory.

5. Nvidia GeForce GTX 460 1GB
Nvidia GeForce GTX 460 1GB
This is 1 GB version of GTX 470 and is powered by GF104 GPU. This card is less powerful and is for those in $150-200 segment. With seven streaming microprocessors (SM), there has been lot improvement as compared to its predecessors. The SMs hold the CUDA cores and special Functional Units (FU) which performs all this graphics operations.

6. AMD Radeon HD 6850
AMD Radeon HD 6850
This card seems to give a tough competition to GTX 460 series, even though it is far more expensive than latter. This card like its other members boasts of new Anti-Aliasing mode or better known as MorphoLogical Anti-Aliasing. The card is capable of handling resolutions up to 1920×1200. The GPU of this card is BARTS XT and memory of 1Gb of GDDR5.

7. AMD Radeon HD 5770
AMD Radeon HD 5770
This is a slightly watered down version of HD 5870. This card has entered lately into graphics arena but due to its excellent performance and efficiency, has become best value for money. The card boasts features more or less similar to HD 5870 and supports resolutions up to 1680×1050.

8. Nvidia GeForce GTS 450
Nvidia GeForce GTS 450
This is the NVIDIA’s offering on lower price cards that are built on Fermi architecture. The card is well suited for gamers with tighter budgets. The card is capable of supporting resolutions upto 1680×1050.

9. Nvidia Geforce GT 430
Nvidia Geforce GT 430
This card is at the lower segment of Nvidia’s DX11 class products. The card is not only for gamers, but can also cater to those using normal PCs and laptops. It offers a value for money for this segment. This card is not really a gamer choice, but it can solve various purposes for a normal user with moderate needs.

10. AMD Radeon HD 5750
AMD Radeon HD 5750
This is another card that is not suited best for gamers. It is mainly focused for normal PC users who just want to have a rich multimedia experience. The card can support resolutions up to 1680×1050. The effects like Tessellation and Multi-Threading Rendering require more resource overheads.

11. Sapphire Vapor-X Radeon HD 5870
Sapphire Vapor-X Radeon HD 5870
This card with a clock speed of 870 MHz is focused for hard core gamers and for those who want to get high-end DirectX 11 card with over clocking potentials. The card has twin dual link ports for HDMI, DVI and other format outputs.

12. Nvidia GTX 275
Nvidia GTX 275
This card is offers some of its DX10 performance with support for 1920×1200 resolution without any hassles. The card also has added features like PhysX and CUDA capabilities.

13. AMD Radeon HD 4890
AMD Radeon HD 4890
This product is the incremental update of Radeon HD 4870. Yet it is a powerful and efficient product. The product has 1 GB memory which is not ideal for gaming, but it can be ideal for photos and other videos.

14. Nvidia GTX 295
Nvidia GTX 295
This stunning black looking card is neatly packed in its monolithic casing making it distinct from others. Having clock speed of 576 MHz with total memory of 1.5 GB.

15. AMD Radeon 4870 X2
AMD Radeon 4870 X2
This is the result of years of hard work and research on multi GPU on a single PCB. This card was not able to handle the DX11 issues effectively, but this card is best suited for general purpose performances.
