Cheap card for 1650x1050

Hi guys.

I am looking for a cheap card (ATi 2XXX or 3XXX) that can run 1650x1050.

I tried looking at the ASUS/Club3d/etc. homepages but I found only the max. resolution.

  1. Budget? The rest of your PC? Gaming and if so which games? Overclocking?
  2. Around the $200 mark, the best cards are:
    1. HD4870 $200
    2. HD4850 $150

    Cheaper cards:
    1. HD 4650 $66
    2. HD 4670 $79
    3. HD 3870 $91

    if you are at all considering Nvidia:
    1. GTX260 $200
    2. 9800GTX $150

    Just a couple of suggestions
  3. HD 4830
  4. +1 on the 4830
  5. Forgot to mention that its for AGP (not PCIE).
    And by cheap I mean a card that is capable of smoothly running HD videos. Don't play games, so I don't really need the performance (and extra noise).
  6. HD3850 the best AGP card around. After that it is all PCIe
  7. You may consider a finding used 2600XT over the 3850 simply becasuse your processor will probably prevent the 3850 from giving you a performance increase over what the 2600XT will give you. Personally I wouldn't waste a lot of money on an AGP system but Newegg has the 3850 AGP for a $99- $120. I also would avoid the Powercolor card due to potential problems.
  8. -1. There is no problem with Powercolor whatsoever
  9. I am happy for both of you. My experience was much different albeit, with only one model, the 4870 1gb PCS+! After 3 seperate premium priced cards and how they changed design and then downgraded its clocks after reviews, I feel Powercolor has problems.
  10. +2 on the 2600 XT. No need to spend a bunch of money if all your doing in playing video.

    Powercolor is fine. As peaks said 3850 is the best you can get in agp, but there outrageously expensive. You can get a HD4850 pci-e for $10 more than the HD3850 agp.

    PowerColor makes a decent card, although they have the fan run at 100% on some models like my PCIe HD 3850. Since all you are doing is playing back HD video, both the 2600 XT and the HD 3850 have a roughly similar onboard video decoder (UVD/UVD+) and support HDMI + audio. I would go with the less-expensive 2600 XT in that case.
  12. +1 2600 XT...didn't think about the fact you wont be playing games
