Need a new graphics card

  • Hello,

    I'm having problems with my graphics card when it comes to contruct 2. I've tried everything now but it still crashes a lot when i try to open projects, insert sprites or try to change text size. In the worst cases it even corrupts my save and even the backup files. I've learned to make a lot of saves and even make a copy before i open a project.

    I'm getting sick of this so i'm looking into a new graphics card but before i spend all my money on a new card i would like to know what you guys are using and if you have any problems with it.

    Any advice would be much appreciated

  • GeForce GTX 560 Ti for about a year and a half, it works pretty good on win7 as far as I can tell.

  • You'd have to give a budget first! And let us know what else you use your computer for.

  • Try Construct 3

    Develop games in your browser. Powerful, performant & highly capable.

  • Do you have enough space for a long GFx? Do you have two slots available or just one?

  • I used to have a GeForce 9800 GTX. Sadly it burned out after 2 years. Should not have put a different fan on it myself. Oh well..

    I have 2 slots and room for a something like the 9800 GTX. That thing was big enough to cover the second slot. I'm looking for something between the 200 and 300.

    I use my machine for gaming as well but there is no need for something super powerful. Its a Intel duo core 3.2 GHz with 4GB of ram. Don't want to waste power because my cpu will be the bottle neck in most cases.

  • the 7770 is a nice and cheap GPU , I got no problems with C2 and I can run Modern Warfare 3 at medium settings smoothly

  • Updating your graphics card driver could fix a lot of those issues without you having to buy a whole new card. Newer hardware does tend to have newer drivers as well though.

    I'm sorry i don't mean to be rude and i know you are trying to help but i have heard this so many times its becoming a bit insulting. I've read pretty much every topic about this problem trying to fix it. I also consider myself a fairly hardcore gamer so my drivers are up to date. The card just keeps crashing from time to time. Not just on construct 2.

    ATI Readon 5700 is just a crappy card. When my GTX died i didn't have the money to get a proper card so i got this on the cheap.

  • Ashley mentioned a while back that high-end newer NVidia cards are giving abnormally high performance in webGL. This might be a benefit, but on the other hand it can give false confidence in your game.

    Just something I thought might or might not be helpful in your search :P

  • I'm using a GTX660. I think this card has the optimum balance between price and performance for PC gaming. The AMD alternative would be a 7870 or 7950 which sit either side in price.

  • Save up for a Titan or 690 is the best idea.

  • Haha yeah right a Titan. That wont happen anytime soon.

    Anyway thanks for all the replies!
