Oh I see. Yeah that card is pretty good. You need a GTX 960 or R9 280 (and up) to get any faster.


It has no audio whatsoever? Are you sure? It should be able to do 2ch PCM, multi-ch PCM,...

If that NVidia card has no audio it has to be old enough that a $40-$60 is probably as fast as it anyway, lol. What model is it anyway?

Unless you have a specific need for 16GB of RAM, there's no need to "upgrade" to 16GB, 'cause it will do pretty much nothing for you.
