    Nvidia for Liquid 7.2

    I have to replace my video card ATI X1950 Pro. I want to try a Nvidia video card this time.

    Sugestions are appreciated.

    I have been using the GTX 260 for the past several months, and it works very well.

    The latest nVidia cards should work fine. I have an 8800GTS and it works great with Liquid and Media Composer.

    Thank you Denny and LewS for your reply.

    What is the difference between GTS 260 (or higher number)  and the 8800 GTS (or higher number)? What do I have to look for in a good and fast Nvidia PCI-E video card?

    I found out different brands selling Nvidia, is any difference?

    Thanks again

    If you do a google search of Toms Hardware, it will take you to a site where various pieces of computer hardware are evaluated.  The higher end nVidia cards are mostly for gamers, and will not give you much if any "bang for the buck" over others.  You want to look for a minimum of a half gig of ram if not more.  From what I have read, there is really not much difference between various manufacturers of the same card when it comes to video editing.

    Hope this helps,

    I've used a number of NVIDIA cards, all without any problems, especially since upgrading to Liquid 7.2.1 (a free upgrade), and have used the fx540, GTS 8600 and the GTX 260.  You'll find that the GTX 260 is the newest of the cards which have been listed so far, and yes there are a multitude of manufacturers selling this board.  You'll find that NVIDIA is actually the manufacturer of the IC (computer chip) and all of the 'other' manufacturers make the daughter boards (or whatever you'd like to name them) using the ICs. 

     If I was to purchase a new graphics card today, I'd purchase any of the GTX 2xx range, as they will help with GPU rendering speeds, etc.
