Heya all ..;-)

i want to ask about ATI Radeon 4670 1 GB

is it good for gaming ?

More about : ati radeon

Depends on your monitor resolution. A 4670 is a minimal gaming card that will be OK at low resolutions (like 1024x768).

If you give your monitor resolution and the games you want to play you will probably get some graphics card recommendations.

It will get you in the door but it won't put you at the front of the line. The 4670 is more of a multimedia card in that it gives good performance over most things, but when it comes to games it just gets you in the door. The lower the resolution you are playing at, the more you will be able to turn up the graphic settings, but you will want to leave AA and AF off, for the most part. It is a good card if you just need something to get you playing games at "OK" graphics.

Is this a general questions, or are you planing to make a purchase? If so, list your specs, what resolution you will be playing at, what games you intend to play, and your budget.

What Power Supply do you have?

A 4670 will play those game, but I'm not sure at what resolution. A 5750/5770 might suit your needs better, they run $145/$175. We just need to make sure your PSU can handle it. What OS do you have?
November 23, 2009 7:29:04 PM

I have windows XP SP2
and 500 watt power supply and i can buy a newer if it needs
November 23, 2009 8:29:46 PM

At 1280x1024 a 5770 should play anything at maximum. You might even get away with a 5750 at that resolution. If you upgrade to a larger widescreen monitor you would want the 5770. If your power supply has a single 6pin PCIE power cable and your motherboard has a PCIEx16 slot your computer will handle a 5770.

I don't want 5770 OR 5750 because they are very big and maybe they will make a touch with the ram slots .. They are very close ....

Give me your final opinion and i'll be thankfull ...

4670 or 4850 ?

4670 have a faster core frequ , 128-bit interface but the 4850 have a huge number of stream process ....and 256-bit interface .

The HD5750 is shorter than a HD4850 and about half an inch longer than a HD4670...
November 23, 2009 9:07:10 PM

I'M AFRAID THAT 5750 very expensive here in my country ....:-9

November 23, 2009 9:15:48 PM

PLZ ALL OF YOU { 4670 OR 4850 } ?
November 23, 2009 9:22:09 PM

I'd probably go with the HD4850 if those are your only options.

Out of curiosity why haven't you installed SP3?
November 23, 2009 9:27:22 PM

What about the core freq does it make matter if the 4850 freq lower than 4670 ?
November 23, 2009 10:46:19 PM

no, because the 4850 has more than double the SPU's and it is a 256bit card vs. a 128bit...

4670><4770><4850><4870 etc......
November 24, 2009 9:56:12 AM

OK , I want to understand something ....

What's the differance between { ATI , HIS , XFX , AND SAPPHIRE ?
Do they all belong to AMD company or what?

Plz if anyone knows the full answer tell me
November 24, 2009 10:31:48 AM

HIS HD 4850 512 MB IceQ 4, it blow hot air to the back out of your case, never had problem so far and happy about it's performance...
November 24, 2009 12:46:18 PM

Please answer my question above.:-(
November 24, 2009 2:19:48 PM

Is the 4850 or 4670 require a 6 pin connector?
November 24, 2009 2:57:27 PM

4670 doesn't need a 6 pin connector, but 4850 need one...
November 24, 2009 3:46:05 PM

Ok thanks ;-)

but i want to ask Is the 9800 GT BETTER THAN 4670

And if it is . What's the price of 9800 GT?
November 24, 2009 4:12:27 PM

I heard many problems about the 4850 ?..
Like heating up and crash
November 24, 2009 4:21:07 PM

the 4850 works fine, its all about taste, if you are a previous ATI owner then you should be fine with the 4850, if you prefer Nvidia the get yourself one of the above =)

GPU's will get hot regardless, it all comes down to what case you have (airflow), cable management and ambient temp.
November 24, 2009 4:36:45 PM

IT will be my final question ..

GEFORCE 9800 GTX OR ATI 4850 ?

Let me now the highest price of the 9800 GTX because i only have 220$ ....
November 24, 2009 4:46:59 PM

220$ US? If so you can opt for a GTX 260/5770 instead... If not get the GTS 250, basically the same price as the GTX+.

November 24, 2009 5:01:02 PM

November 24, 2009 5:01:52 PM

are you buying the card from a website or local store?
November 24, 2009 5:09:21 PM

No , from a local store
November 24, 2009 5:09:37 PM

Desertstorm1, you have not given us nearly enough information to help you.

First and most important is how many PCIE power cables does your power supply have?

You mentioned a space problem inside your case, you need to measure how long the card can be from the back edge of computer. Your Case and PSU models or links to them would be rally useful to have. Cards like the 9800gtx+ require 2 PCIE cables and are 10.5 inches long. It may just not be an option.

It would be nice if you could list the cards you have available and their prices so we could make some judgement if one is ridiculously overpriced compared to another.
November 24, 2009 5:36:31 PM

Look about the space in the case amd the PSU don't worry :-)
i'll take care of them but i'm just afraid of price


OR 9800 GTX
November 25, 2009 12:45:28 AM

9800 GTX+ then...
November 25, 2009 6:07:44 AM

Is the 9800 GTX+ good for the upcoming games? ,
means for the future?
November 25, 2009 6:30:27 AM

Yes, it can max out nearly all current games at good resolutions except system-killers such as Crysis.
November 25, 2009 8:38:29 AM

OH CRYSIS ........... :-9
November 25, 2009 5:03:17 PM

At 1280x1024 a 9800 GTX+ is strong. At 1680x1050 its only OK. I just replaced a 9800 GTX+ with a 5770 and went from playing at high settings/no AA to ultra high with AA at 1680x1050. Since it only has 512MB RAM you will want to turn of AA to improve performance.
November 25, 2009 5:37:42 PM

I usually play games at { 1280x1024 } because i don't have a large screen ;-)

can i max all the setting like AA and AF and visual sync at this resolution ???
November 26, 2009 8:49:58 AM

Guys just answer my last question plz...:-(
November 27, 2009 7:35:02 PM

I dont know about 1280x1024 or the games you play. I know it can not run 50FPS smoothly with AA/AF at 1680x1050 in the MMORPGs I play. A Radeon 4870 (1GB) would be a much stronger card at about the same price in the US.
