GTS250 or HD5750 for an AMD system

Good day to everyone..

I would like to get suggestions on which gpu will work better on my system.

my rig:
athlon ii x4 620 not overclocked
MSI 785GM-E65
onboard video
Kingston 1333mhz 2GB x2
Seagate 7200.12 500GB
PSU - ST50F-230
Windows 7 x64
19" samsung lcd @ 1440x900 using powerstrip(horrible at other resolution)

Most of the articles i've found says that gts250 is a bit faster than hd5750, but if i choose to buy gts250, will the performance be affected because i'm using an amd cpu and mobo? Will it be better just to choose hd5750?
I'm just a moderate gamer, the titles i'm playing today are Left 4 dead and Heroes of might and magic 5, but i would like to try crysis and re5 sometime soon.

oh, and the prices from where i'm from are: (in us$)
HD5750 - $152.08
GTS250(1GB) - $136.46
GTS250(512) - $114.58

The cards are neck to neck performance wise so if price/performance is it then get the GTS250 but if you want DX11 the 5750

Thanks for the quick reply, last question..

If i choose the GTS250 for the price/performance value, will i still be able to play titles that support DX11??

Yes but of course unable to turn on DX11 effects but they will be supported for DX10 as well
January 11, 2010 7:47:01 PM

ouch.. and i'm not planning to upgrade for at least 2 years, i guess i'll go with HD5750.

Thanks a lot!

The 5770 is going to last you longer performance wise.

I'm not sure which articles you've been reading, the 5750 is slightly faster. said:

here from toms hardware

the other article and forum site, i don't remember but there are also other saying that they are of the same speed.. very confusing...

BTW that 5750 is over priced, you can get it for a bit cheaper

i live in the philippines, i can't buy from newegg. sucks when you live in a 3rd world country with product prices way above other countries.

All three cards are similar performance wise, there isnt a huge difference between them.

If you want to spend very little money I'd go with the GTS 250 512MB ony because its cheap ($110), the 5750 is only slightly faster, not enough to justify the extra spend but its still the faster card. If you've got the money I think its best to shoot for the 5770 @ $155.

Below is a list of the performance of all three cards to help you along with the decision:

What is your screen resolution? Sorry missed it on the first read the GTS250 512mb is plenty for that.

How much does the HD4850 cost? it is on par with the other cards you are thinking about and often can be found cheaper(here at least.)
The HD4770 or HD4870 should be considered as well depending on their prices.

^ if you want dx11, the 5750 is a short term solution.

the gts 250 on the otherhand is cheaper (the 512mb version that is), compared to a 5750 which is stuck @ 1gb, with your given gaming resolution of 1440x900 would be put to waste.

i would suggest not a gts250, but a hd4770 instead. which you can find locally (im from the philippines as well) for 4850php ($97). it consumes less power, packs a punch @ your gaming resolution plus it cheaper. if you're still not sold check this out http://www.anandtech.com/video/showdoc.aspx?i=3553&p=1...

anyway, im not a fan of the gts250, it consumes as much power as the next tier of card (almost reaching the gtx260 levels).

heres a link of my most favorite local dealer which you might wanna check http://tipidpc.com/useritems.php?username=PCHub.

i hope this helps. and if you do buy a 4770 locally, you can still possibly look for brands that still has a free stalker2 game.

HD4850 here cost around $145, and are very hard to find. HD4850 was my original plan last year but i decide on spending the money on other parts and then get it later on. Sadly, from $125 it climb to $145...

The HD4770 at the price wh3resmycar mentions is a good choice for a casual gamer at those resolutions.
January 11, 2010 8:54:07 PM

Great reference BDDazza and great shop site wh3resmycar

wh3resmycar, great advice the 4770 is a good card, nice and cheap.

Although I'm worried because the OP wants to keep the card for 2 years. Will the 4770 hold up for 2 years?

i would also like to know the answer for the question above :??:

Personally, I wouldnt settle for the 4770 only because 2 years is a long time and I'm not too sure if it can hold up, it probably can. I think if you've got the funds its better to equip yourself for the long run especially if you're not sure when you're next upgrade will happen.

5750 1 GB > GTS 250 1 GB > GTS 250 512 MB - Your finances will determine which card is best. I hope I was of help, when your card arrives post back and tell us how it performs :) 


Great! i've decided, i can max out my budget for a HD5750.
I'm also considering that although i may not upgrade my cpu for atleast 2 years, my monitor is already more that 2years old and may need a change sooner.

Thanks for all the replies

Eh, by the time the HD4770 isn't viable for his resolution there will be much better cards for much cheaper. Over paying for a card you don't really need today in case you do years in the future in a market like video cards where prices shift so drastically over short periods is almost always a mistake. It's not like the HD4770 is much weaker than the other cards anyway and the 40nm power efficiency is a nice bonus.

i dont believe a 5750 would hold up for 2 years as well, as far as visual enjoyment is concerned.

anyhow, an hd7670/8670, 2 years from now, i bet would utterly dominate a hd5870, and would probably cost ~$80 (or even less) e.g. 4670 vs x1950xtx. i'd play it cheap and get the 4770 (because the op is a little price sensitive)

Yeah, the HD5750 is a good choice if you can afford it especially if you may upgrade your monitor. It should be a nice card for 1680x1050 and lower and it also OCs very well. The power efficiency and DX11 support are nice bonuses.

^ i didnt know the op has already decided but if you're from the philippines, skip the 5750 because....

this is the card to get:

http://tipidpc.com/viewitem.php?iid=4770801

an xfx hd5770 @ $151 (listed price / 50 as $1 = 50pesos), cheaper than your listed 5750.

hope its not too late for ya.
a c 376 U Graphics card

Yeah, get that HD5770. That's a card that likely will last you 2 years on your current monitor and would be good when/if you upgrade your monitor.

At your resolution, the 577xx's aren't a bad buy, at 1920 x 1200, I'd stick w/ DX10 cards as the 57xx series, from what we've seen so far (Dirt2) can't do 30 fps on DX11 titles.

It's clearly the best option for his budget where he is...

dark99end, how much is the 4770 in your country and do they sell it, because if its cheap, really cheap it might be worth considering still.


4770 cost around $108

the denomination i used is 48pesos/$1...

just finished reading the link, it says there that i need to be a member to avail the product for the promoted price???
plus they said its already out of stock...

membership is free. just remember your username when you walk inside their store.
well theres another 5770 listed costing 7800php on the list from powercolor. pcxpress sucks with their aftersales service. that freakin store wont honor the distributor warranty which leaves you the buyer, to find the distro yourself.

your choice though.
January 12, 2010 8:01:36 AM

great, i may drop by there anytime on february and check up on their 5750 and 5770, i'll choose whichever comes near to my budget.
Your right about the warranty, hope the pchub's warranty is better. the only service that i like about pcx is that they allow product returns/replacement of other products.

again, thanks for all the suggestion

Whoops, beaten..... >.<

dark99, since you're from the Philippines, I'd suggest websites like TipidPC. Which is basically a sort of eBay for computer parts. You can get really good deals on that website.

Anyway, the Radeon 5750 is a bit more expensive than the GTS250, but it's also faster. Either way, you get what you pay for. =)

I say go with the 5750. It's faster, uses less power and is a DX11 card.
November 12, 2010 11:07:45 PM

Instead of a reply. i have a question to you guys..

Will HD5750 1gb work with my MS-7309 MoBo?

I am seeking for you help guys..

Thanks a lot.
