Traction Wars using the awesome CryEngine 3 will require some modern and powerfull GPU to run at a reasonable graphics quality, so, the question is: what kind of graphics card do you have on your Desktop/Laptop computer?



My current GPU is a Geforce 210, which is not enough to run the latest games, even on Low quality, but soon I intend to upgrade for a much more faster graphics card solution. :D

Personally I run a EVGA 3GB 780 GTX SC BUT I must stress that's complete overkill for TWs - it's more future-proofing for next-gen games.



My last card was 1 GB ATI 5700 and before that ATI 800GT which could run CE3 surprisingly.

Very good card General Naga, probably I will end up buying an AMD R9 290(custom model), it delivers good performance/price ratio at the moment and should last me for some years.
My last card was GTX 670, but had to send it to RMA due technical problems.

Both, the AMD R9 290 and 290X versions feature 4GB of GDDR5 memory running at 5GHz speed, on a 512-bit bus, they are beast of cards, specially for ultra high resolutions, the main problem now it's the reference cooler, which is not the best to keep the cards cool and quiet, but soon the companies like ASUS, Gigabyte, HIS, MSI etc, will provide custom versions with improved coolers and better quality pcb.
Can't wait to play games at highest settings again 8)

8600 GTS, 8800 GTX, 8800 Ultra, 270 GTX, 6870, 6870 CF, and 670 GTX (two times now) is all the different cards I've had since 2007, haha!

Funny enough, my old Intel E6600 still runs on my mother's PC until this day...

Maniche, thanks for sharing your graphics card history with us, it's good to know that people here also cares about hardware. :)
Btw, the 270 GTX you refer must be GTX 275 ?

PS: Nice signature picture "Overlord", I almost can feel those soldiers running into fire of MG's 42, 88's, GrW34...

This would be my current card, an MSi GTX 670 Power Edition with a very nice factory OC. I have previously owned a GTX570, a GTX460, an 8800GT, an Nvidia Quadro FX 3400 and much like Maniche, my mom still has some old ATI card running in our old desktop at home.

Currently running a GTX 560 Ti. Previously I've had a pair of 9600GT in SLI, a pair of 8600GTS in SLI, a 7800GT, and a 6800GT.

ahh, that is exactly the card I had to return due hardware failure, since then I'm waiting for purchase a new and superior replacement...

However I have some pictures of the card to share:

I had a old Nvidea 5200 128mb card. That thing was a beast back when I was playing bf1942 and desert combat all the time!

Ah what I like to think of as the good old days. Desert Combat and Forgotten Hope 1 - to think I used to lag thanks to a small GPU playing those two!
