Eve Online: New Graphics Card

I knew my graphics card wasn’t brilliant, it was a relic you’re more likely to find in a drifting hulk in Eve Online than available at any shop. It wasn’t until I benchmarked it and compared it to others that I found out how bad it was.

One benchmarking site gave it a 3D benchmark of 250. After a bit of research I finally settled upon a new GeForce GTX 960 as a replacement, this one has a benchmark of 6600!

Thats over a 25x improvement!

Now Eve Online, which is what I predominately bought it for, plays like a dream. Everything is so smooth and crisp.  On top of that it’s visually stunning. Below is a series of comparisons; left is the old Radeon, the right hand side my new GTX 960. Click to see the extra detail.

Here are just a few screenshots I thought were worthy of a capture as well.
