Nvidia GeForce GTX 280

Over-priced, over-specced and over here

Build a business case: developing custom apps

The GeForce 6600 GT refused to run Crysis at all, the 6800 GT was feeble and the 7300 GT was poor. Moving up to the 9600 GT made things better, although game play was too slow to be enjoyable, but the 8800 GT fixed that and delivered decent results. Although the 8800 GT sounds as though it's older than the 9600 GT, it's the same chip with double the number of Stream Processors. Curiously, both the 9800 GTX and the dual-chip 9800 GX2 were hopeless in Crysis on these settings although they were superb in 3DMark Vantage, 3DMark06 and PCMark Vantage.

Longer bars are better

The GTX 280 performed superbly across the range of benchmarks and has an impressively low power draw at idle as the 700MHz core clocks down to 300MHz and the memory seems to run at a mere 100MHz.
