    Default NVIDIA GeForce GT 630 vs GeForce GT 520? Or perhaps another Which is best?

    I am looking for a good video card upgrade for my system. Hope to squeek a few extra FPS out of FSX, though I know the processor is the main thing. I can afford a max of $100 and have sort of narrowed it to these two which seem to be likely candidates. I am NOT too versed in hardware and I know that some here are. I would like some opinions on either of these or another as yet uncontemplated in that price range. Any suggestions anyone? (note hardware specs on the bottom)

    Thanks in advance.

    This one is far better than either of the ones you are looking at.

    Well GTS-450 it is then. Thanks everyone for your input and help. Am ordering the 450 as we speak.
