  1. Whats up guys?..I have a question,im building my first pc and I wanted to know if this graphic card (geforcegt610) can support tripple monitors, I see it has 3 different outputs like,vga,hdmi and dvi.Im not really big on pc gaming so I wont do much gaming most likely music production or video editing..best buy have a good sale on video cards and I saw this one for 40 bucks,is it worth buying?

    A GT610 is cheap. It is nothing to do with Best Buy. The 610 will be horrible for video editing since it is a VERY low end GPU. If you arent gonna be gaming, the ATI FirePro V4900 is a better buy for your needs. The 610 is fine, but will struggle if you do video editing.

    The GPU is separate from the CPU/motherboard. The CPU uses the DDR3, and the GPU (a completely different processor) uses the DDR5.

    Since we got that out of the way, what is your budget? I can get you an even higher end card if you want. What are your system specs?

    Well, nobody needs the "ultimate" version of any Windows product (IMHO), and the Q8300 is a relic.It's from 3 generations ago, (at least ?). Socket LGA775 is extinct in the wild. How long have you had these parts?:confused:

    As to your original question, the 610 graphics card, isn't even as good as the CPU integrated graphics in the current generation of Intel "Core" processors.

    So, is this an "upgrade" or a "build"?
