What video card do you use?
« on: February 07, 2012, 11:25:07 PM »
I thought it would be interesting to get a general idea of what graphics cards people have. With the enormous numbers of different models out there I'm limiting this to just consideration of the "family" or "generation" of video card and the manufacturer of the GPU itself (usually ATI or Nvidia). Feel free to provide more detail in comments if you'd like.

Me, I've got an Nvidia Geforce 570, so I picked 500 series. :)

ATI Sapphire Radeon HD 6850 here. It is the best GPU card I have ever had.

Mine is an ATI Mobility Radeon HD4670 in a three year old Dell XPS16.

Really need a better, newer one.

This behemoth at work has a 512M quadro fx 3700
My somewhat ageing yet still functional machine at home has a 320M geforce 8800gts

As a point of note... I've had one gaming card go bang on me after I switched cooling heatsinks, so no real surprise!
However, here, within a year we've had several of these quadros go bang all on their own. I wouldn't recommend them for Terragen anyway, but if you do want a quadro for other purposes, video editing etc, don't get that one imo. Least not in a Dell, lol.

NVIDIA GeForce 7300 GT

Don't take this as a recommendation. It is slow and crashes TG2 on my Mac Pro 1,1 Dual core intel 2.66GHz.
