Hi There! This is Apoorva from Mumbai. Off lately, I am planning to buy a new Graphics Card for my system since my current Graphics Card Nvidia 7300LE is now quiet older. I had purchased it 3 yrs back and therefore would now like to replace it with the one which has an HDMI connection as I have recently purchased new LCD Monitor Benq G2420HD which has an HDMI connection input to it.
Now while going through Nvidia India's website to check out for the available products at this link: http://www.nvidia.co.in/object/geforce_family_in.html
, I have been extremely confused between the numbers of series Nvidia has to offer and therefore e'm wondering that which series turns out to be the best?
So, my questions here are:
Q1. What are the differences between 8, 9 & 200 series?
Q2. Is it that if I move up ahead in the series, the product's quality and performance equally starts getting better? E.g. If I would first be planning to pick up a product from 8 or 9 series but then later decide to pick up this Nvidia Geforce GT 220 DDR3 product from 200 series, so is it that none of the Nvidia products under 8 & 9 series would match the capabilities of this product?
Q3. I am using an Asrock motherboard, Model: 945G-DVI which has a 16x PCIe slot so will this Nvidia Graphics card go along with this slot, I mean will the motherboard & this 16xPCIe slot accept and recognize this Nvidia Geforce GT 220 DDR3 Graphics card?
The link to my motherboard is:
Request you to kindly visit that link above to closely study the specs for my motherboard.
My main purpose of buying a Benq G2420HD LCD Monitor was b'coz I wanted to play good games and to watch movies especially Action movies. So, will this Graphics Card give best quality and performance for these 2 purposes specified? And does it suffer from any heating issue?
Kindly help me out please......
