- I am a huge PC gamer. I don't necessarily have the most powerful rig to run the latest and greatest games with all the bells and whistles turned on, but it serves me just fine.
However, there are some of you who will stop at nothing to have the ultimate gaming PC. For those people I present to you... the nVidia Quadro FX 5800
What makes the nVidia Quadro FX 5800 so awesome, you ask? Well, for starters it has 4GB of onboard memory, and has a bandwidth of 102GB/s.
Or to translate: It's the most powerful graphics card on Earth.
So how much do you think this bad boy costs? $400? $500? $800?! ...no. Try $3,500.
Yeah, $3,500. For $3,500 you could buy a whole computer – and a damn good one, at that. But, if you have the money to burn (and I mean that literally) and you want to see if a graphics card that was designed for medical computers can handle Far Cry 2... why not?
Note: I know it's not a gaming card... It's a graphics card designed to handle precise rendering, and is used heavily in the field of medicine. Usually on those 3D CT scans.
