Hello there, I need a development system for 3d graphics programming. It will be in opengl/direct3d in c/c++ for windows. I am a student with a tight bugdet. Currently, I have a Geforce 2, AMD 1000, RAM: 1500MB (testing environment for db, appl. servers). I have downloaded the radeonsdk and nvsdk, but most of the features require latest technology. My favourite choice is a geforce4 ti4200, which has all the required extensions for nvsdk, shader support, dx8.1 support. I admit, I like the nvsdk more than the radeonsdk. Is lack of dx9 support and lack of shader version 2.0+ a problem? Which video card would you choose for 3d graphics development? thank you.
