GPU recomendation

So my old Geforce7200 is fried.
Now I'm looking for a new card
at $120 or less(not more) that
can play crysis on highest settings
on 1280x1024 res.:

PSU:475w
CPU:amd athlonx2 4200+ 2.2ghz(AM2)
MB:pci-e 1x16(not 2.0)
RAM: 2gb ddr2

Not thinking of OC or upgrading my other parts for a while since I'm broke, only got for GPU.

  1. I would go with 4770, it uses less power and it will play all the new games available.
  2. ^+1

    Even though your processor will bottleneck it, it is still a great deal and you will still see performance gains.
  3. To play at 1280X1024 resolution both Radeon HD 4830 and 4770 will give you best performance.
    If you want to save more then you can go for nVIDIA Geforce 9600GT 512MB (OCed)GDDR3 as it is also a solid performer in 1280X1024 resolution.
  4. 4770, they are already offering rebates on the Egg that bring the price to just under $100.

    Go with an ATI 4850. For about $110 you can get an overclocked version from ASUS at newegg.
  6. I know the GTX 295 is like $500, but people think of it as one card... Its basically SLI in a box. So you get two video cards for $500... think about the bargain.
  7. Since people are suggesting the more power hungry cards, I have a question; What brand is your PSU?

    WTF look at his PSU.......
  9. 9800GTX/GTX+/GT250 or 4850 will be the minimum required to play Crysis on nearly on very high @ 1280x1024
  10. Whoops... Well I suggest the GTX 9000 models then.
  11. 4770 if the PSU is reasonable, 4670 if not. Even a 4650 would be way ahead of a
    GF7200.
