My livingroom rig that I use as my entertainment system (connected to my 50" TV & stereo system) in the living room recently had the video card die. It was an Nvidia GeForce 9800 GTX on an ASUS P5N-D motherboard. I just want to make sure this new video card I'm looking at will be compatible. Thanks for taking a look (to whom it may apply) as a 2nd set of eyes.

Gday GhostLoad.
The 610 is compatible, but you will take a performance hit as it is just a re-badged older card, > http://www.anandtech...630-into-retail
This is your current card, How are you connecting to the TV? > http://www.geforce.c.../specifications

If you are staying with NVIDIA? Some cards for you to consider.

I'm currently connected via a DVI to HDMI cable, since the card doesn't have HDMI out. And yes, I'd like to stay with NVidia. I'll take a look at the link of cards as soon as I get home from work. I'm trying to get a better card than what I've got, but still for approx $50.

Mkay I checked your "suggested cards" link, and it's the same one as the first link with info about the 610 lol. Was that intentional or did you paste the wrong link? Thanks.

Anyone else? How much better is this 610 card compared to the 9800 GT I'm currently using? Is there a better card in the same price range? Please help. Thanks.
