Justifying A GeForce GTX 275
I came across a TigerDirect ad offering a BFG GeForce GTX 275 OC Video Card - 896MB for $201.98 shipped after a $30 MIR. It's not that I really need a new video card, but this is so much lower than I had seen this card for recently, I'm tempted, but to decide, I need more than a cheap price. Since I have been having a problem operating my monitor on a HDMI cable with my current video card, and this card says that it is HDMI (with an adapter), I started wondering if not all PCIe video cards with DVI connectors wouldn't be HDMI also...with adapters?
I'm certain that this card will outperform what I have, but that really only comes into play on games, which isn't really a priority at the moment. Is there any other factor that I should consider before making a decision?
