    nVidia GeForce GT 240 GDDR3 vs. nVidia GeForce GT 220

    I've compared these two online, and i'm still not sure which is better.

    i just bought the GT240 and 'Can Your Run It' is saying that i cannot run Supreme Commander 2 but not really telling me why. it also says i cannot run Supreme Commander 1 which runs fine on my system.

    so i'm thinking of returning the GT240 and getting the GT220.

    your thoughts?

    The GT 240 is a better card then the GT 220, hence the higher model number. Neither is a great gaming card though, but the GT 240 is good enough for most games. See a benchmark here with both cards and lasts years mid range card and the previous years near top card, the 8800GT: http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/geforce-gt-240,2475.html

    Here are the requirements for Supreme Commander 2: http://www.game-debate.com/news/?ne...2&title=Supreme Commander 2 Full System Specs

    Note the CPU recommended, dual core. Your Pentium 4 is going to be the weak link.

    P.S. "Can you Run it" isn't perfect.

    Used to play Total Annihilation in the OLD days

    I play Supreme Commander on my system with a quad and the ATI 4670. the GF240 is on par with the 4670. The P4 will be stressing on large maps. SuCom is one of the few games that really needs 2~4GB of RAM and SuCom2 should be pushing it a bit more.

    I see no reason why the GF240 should have any major issues... lower the details. Its easily slower than the 5670 ($90~110).

    SuCom is more CPU dependent than GPU.
