Hi everyone. I am about to buy Octane Render. Probably this weekend and i will also be selling my old 9800GT. Therefore ill be getting a new graphics card for Octane. I need some suggestions. Im willing to spend up to $180. I am interested in the GTX460. This is the one im looking into:http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=6491184&CatId=3670. Its regular price is $225 but on sale for $149. Do you think it is a good deal Do you have any other suggestions I should mention I only have 1 PCI-Express 2.0 slot, and a 550W power supply, 4GB RAM and an intel Core2 Quad 2.66Ghz CPU.
Lastly ive noticed that when i am navigating in windows 7 with Octane on. Windows is extremely slow. I understand this is because Octane is making use of my whole Graphics Card, but is there a solution to this
