    optimum graphics card for Virtu MVP

    I have an i5 3570k on an Asus P8Z77-V LX with 8GB RAM
    I am thinking about adding a discrete graphics card and using the LucidLogix Virtu MVP
    I have read the on-chip HD4000 compares to a HD6450 (or GTX 560Ti ?) and that using a discrete card equivalent to the on-chip would provide best effects through Virtu MVP
    Is there an optimum card, is the HD6450 or equivalent it?

    Don't forget in some circumstances lucid MVP messes up frame rate counting, so make sure to look for articles that compensate for this and/or provide subjective analysis as well.

    The ASUS mobo user guide states Virtu MVP "supports NVIDIA GF4xx/5xx series and AMD HD5xxx/6xxx series graphics cards"
    Is Virtu MVP still best avoided?

    Well you can always have a go with the trial version, see if you like it.

    But the GPU you buy is always going to provide most of the power, don't expect Virtu MVP to make a big difference overall.
    Buy a GPU that suits your needs and treat any gains from Virtu MVP as a bonus (if it does work well in your usage).
