heya this is my my current comp setup and am looking at a big video card upgrade , since i live in canada and quadcore prices are still a bit too much till perhaps next year . anyways with this current setup and a 275$ budget what would be a good video card upgrade .
Cpu:intel e7200 2.5 ghz
Video Card : Ati Sapphire 4670 gddr3 512 meg pci-e
hard drive:seagate 500 gig sata 16 meg cache
memory:4 gigs ddr2 800 mhz oca reaper hfc series
psu:seasonic M12 600 watts atx 12v
operating system: windows xp home
there you have it folks
P.s. By the way a few friends have recommended me to either buy one of these cards from my local computer store , But i wnat to get feedback since many have suggested me to go to tom's hardware for adviceanyways here are the links to the two mentioned cards
They are not in stock much because they were just released but for long term considerations that would be what i recommend. It may take a few more weeks for availability to build up. You could use newegg's auto notify feature and jump on to buy when you get notified.
thanks for the advice , i think since its not much in stock right now by the time it is in stock i'll have the extra money to buy it , i wont be able to take advantage of the direct x 11 since i am stuck on windows xp but since i'll be upgradeing to windows 7 and a new cpu next year . i have to say this card is worth it
