I honestly think people are very dumb when determining if graphics cards are good.
I’ve been ripping performance out of every single computer I could get my hands on for smooth game place. I was never gifted with a computer that could play things at a steady frame rate. (now that I am waiting on my last component for my PC I am excite).
I saw some unboxing of a Zotex Nvidia GT 730 4gb 1600mhz and they complained about 120 fps on minecraft while it was raining D:
Minecraft is disgusting. Yet, when I run 15-30 all the time max on a crappy laptop with OGL < 2.0 Shader 1.2 you will inevitably see why I wouldn’t complain. I almost can run League of Legends at 60 fps with my other laptop and it has about the same OGL and Shader, but it is much better in terms of CPU clock and ram.
The computer that I built is far beyond my expectations and I haven’t even built it completely yet.
I can’t wait to get back to coding too, my gfx card should be here tomorrow.
I am writing this on one of the crappy laptops that I was talking about, and the fact that I was using a loaned laptop for so long is funny. My computer specs are ATX, AMD 4.00ghz FM2+ socket quadcore, g.skill 2x4gb 1600mhz DDR3, GIGABYTE F2A88X motherboard, 450w coolermaster psu, and Zotex Nvidia GT 730 4gb 1600mhz graphics card.
My target for this computer was obviously budget and I think I did very well. I bought the assets for this computer for under 300$
I am going to love the hell out of this PC
