Gigabyte card or Nvidia card?

February 18, 2012 at 05:12:18
Specs: Artistx(ubuntu), 3.2dualcore/4gb
I have this card installed already on my Linux machine http://www.gpureview.com/GeForce-86... but i scored this card from someone http://www.gigabyte.com/products/pr... so was wondering which is the better card. I don't do gaming but i do do some video editing and plan to do more. The specs seem to look better with the second card but i know that brands seems to matter so can anyone tell me what they think please :0)

Nvidia makes the chipset for both of these cards, all of the same basic models perform similar so anything related to the model will be similar regardless of the actual manufacturer. The 8600GTS is the better card of the two and suitable for mild gaming which the 210 card is not really. Look at this:

for more details.
