  1. Crysis won't max out, l4d, fallout 3 and assasins will:), well assasin's may have hiccups:P
    I would also look into the 4830 since it matches the 9800 GT and can be found cheaper at times. Though if you want to b able to play it safe, either the HD 4850 or the 9800 GTX+ would be a better choice.



    Thats just a general idea.

    I'll assume that your monitor is 1600s resolution?
  2. The best performing graphic card at $170 if you factor in the rebate is a HD4870 512

  3. That card has no future proofing though, and theres no gaurantee that there will be anymore 512 megs 4870s since the 1 gigs are starting to become soo cheap. PLus if he ever wanted to add an x2 (or a 4870 1gig) he would b restricted to 512. I mean if your going to go for a higher card, you might as well as go for the 4870 1 gig.

    But its up to the OP, he doesn't have crossfire, but he might choose to switch boards in the near future:P

    170$ is a really good price the 4870 :)
  4. As a new build, I`d look to either the HD4870 1Gb or GTX260.
    I`ve not checked too many prices but both can be found on Newegg for $210 or slightly less. I know this is over budget but a 9800GT is going to need to be replaced fairly quickly unless you turn down the quality settings.
  5. any other suggestion other then the hd4870???
  6. 260 GTX.
