I’ve talked many times about the importance of a good graphics card. Cards are often promoted for gamers, but they are also a key piece of hardware for anymore working with digital graphics. As monitors have moved to 4K resolutions, you need more power to push that huge numbers of pixels around the screen.
For those who want the absolute best and don’t worry about the budget, there are some awesome cards. Most of you have a budget and therefore you want something that delivers a lot of bang for the fewest bucks. The Gigabyte GeForce GTX 970 Overclocked GDDR5 PCIe Video Graphics Card currently sells for $334 at Amazon (there is an additional $30 rebate available) thus delivering a lot of bang for a reasonable price.
Reviews claim it may not have enough power for ultra high-resolution gaming, but it has plenty of power for other applications. If you are building a new computer or want to give your graphics a series upgrade, this is a video card you should consider.
