I've recently pulled an old computer out of the closet to use as my XP gaming machine. It's all great, and I've been losing myself in nostalgia, but I have an issue.
The GPU is a HD4850 (512MB) and it's LOUD! I'm happy with the performance and want to swap in an nVidia card that has equal or marginally better performance. I've actually ordered a passively cooled GT 730, but after dispatch I noticed it was the 1GB DDR3 version.
So my main questions are:
1 - Is the GT730 that's on the way WORSE than a HD4850? Again, it's a 1GB card using DDR3 (not GDDR)
2 - What's the best nVidia card that would give equal or slightly better performance than the HD4850?
Thank you all for your help.
