My demands for video cards specs are not so high. Until recently I have been using a Zotac GFX650 that served me quite. Unfortunately it died. Looking for something a little bit better, reliable and not so expensive has been a difficult task. Video cards are now more more expensive than mobos, and I do not wish to enter into that path. The games I play are no too demanding, and the video board only has to attend some editing demands from Avid Media Composer. But I had been doing my editing with the GFX650 with no problem, so I don't see any reason of investing too much. I set my budget between $140 to $170. And for that I picked three apparently good choices: https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814125918 https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814500411&ignorebbr=1 https://www.newegg.com/Product/Prod...ignorebbr=1&IsFeedbackTab=true#scrollFullInfo Of the three, the EVGA seems like the best compromise, particularly because there were no negative reviews, as there were on the Zotac, my second choice. Both being a short profile is something that appeals to me too. Now please help me read and translate the specs better in practical terms. That is the difficult part for me. Thanks!
