Hi guys..again

Im still unsure on what graphics card to get..I have a Nvidia 7600Gs At the moment. I got a budget of like 200€ for the card and psu..i could strech to 10-20€ over if really nessacary but im not buying it so id like to keep the cost kinda down if ya get me.

I'd like a card that gives me the best performance i can buy with 200€ but yet leaving some money for a Psu to run it(thats if thats even needed).

I mainly play call of duty 4 and 5. What card would you suggest?

I was looking at an a 9600gt but was wonder is there anything better out that that will give me actually good results :)  Ty

the 4850 is within the price range, and a very good performer, although leaving some money for a PSU is a tad dificult.

for a single GPU setup a 500w PSU is recomended (especially if using a C2D\Q with the 4850.

if the 4850 is beyond ur price rainge then a 4830, 9800GT, 9600GTX, 8800GTS, 8800GT.

all these cards are very capably of playing COD 4\5 very well and well within ur price range.


good luck

I found a saphire 4850 for 135€ which i think is pretty decent..So now i just need a Psu recomendation..How do you know how much power a certain card needs?

You sure it's got a PCI-e slot? Just with it being a P4.

If it's on AGP then a 3850, if it's PCI-e then as said, 4850.

yeah im 90% sure its pci-e..is there any way to check though quickly?

Download and run CPU-Z from CPUID.com On the 'Motherboard' Tab it will tell you if you have PCI-Express or AGP.

Yeah it is PCI-E Indeed. Just one more quick question..Is there anyway i know if a Psu will work with my Pc or are they all the same..

Generaly speaking, any ATX power supply should work. The exception would be some OEM(read: Dell) motherboards as well as special boards (BTX, theres another oddball whos name I cant recall)

If you check the label on your current one, it should say ATX or likely ATX12V. Just find that designation and make sure your new one matches.
