    is NVIDIA GeForce GT640 better than ATI RADEON HD 7660D ?


    Can anyone tell me if the Graphic Card Asus NVIDIA GeForce GT640 (PCI-e, 2GB GDDR3 RAM, DVI, D-Sub, HDMI, 1 GPU) (Asus 90-C1CSB0-S0UAN0YZ) is any better than: OnBoard Graphics ATI RADEON HD 7660D (Asus F2 A85-M Pro motherboard) ?

    it's for gaming (War Thunder / World of Tanks / Minecraft and such like)

    yes I know it is low end - but so is budget (and its a second-hand one)

    thanks

    Check out this site for comparisons of video cards http://www.notebookcheck.net/Compari...rds.130.0.html

    I didn't see the HD 7660D (but I didn't look real hard). Here is a comparison of the HD 7660M and the GT640M.
    If the 7660D and 7660G are similar, then the Radeon is a better choice.

    EDIT: I assumed you are looking at laptop graphics (but now re-reading your post I think you are talking about desktop cards).

    Desktop - and the AMD Radeon HD 7660D is OnBoard Graphics, part of the AMD A10-5800 (ASUS FM2 Mainboard)

    I did try to do a vs check but I got confusing/conflicting results - my knowledge in this area is too minimal - fast Zero

    Hi there,a quick look at PassMark Software - Video Card (GPU) Benchmark Charts - Video Card Model List will give the discrete video card a slight advantage over the inbuilt one...

    Okay thanks proudtobegreek

    In my ignorance it looks that the GT640 is slightly more than a “slight advantage” with G3D Mark rating at 1,287 compared to 797 of the HD 7660D – or am I missing something?

    (but I guess to "real" gamers this is a minimal difference? But both are a no-go for real gamers I guess!)

    Is the difference too small to be worth the bother then ( although it seems better to me!!!)?

    Figures below 2k (maybe for some "real gamers" 4k),are not making any difference in low-end gaming.Are the mentioned games really that demanding?If yes,try to "climb" up the 2k ladder,just to make things easier for your GPU and CPU...

    Add in, gave your specs, but no PSU info as this is important too when buying discrete video card.

    I’m not going to pretend I understand this whole graphic card business, because I don’t, and the most, way out of my affordability

    But I checked the PassMark list again and found one (Sapphire ATI HD 7750) that was even a little cheaper with G3D Mark at 1637 compared to 1287 / GT640 and 797 / HD 7660D


    Still not over your stated 2K but for the moment they are out of my price class


    Perhaps the Sapphire ATI HD 7750 (a 2012 model – make any difference?) will do for now (my sons computer) ?

    Sapphire ATI HD 7750 this model needs 400w Power supply just at your limit of 400W you have in PC. Any clues on what type or which games give us better idea of a budget card.
