I need some help, I just build a budget rig (Athlon II X4, 2 GB RAM, and Windows 7). This week I plan on buying a graphics card since my Xbox 360 got it's second red ring, and quit working. I decided to buy a GPU instead. Basically I want to play the same games I use to play on my system (NBA 2K10, FIFA 10 etc.), and a few others that are coming out (Mass Effect 2, Splinter Cell conviction, MGS Rising etc.) at the same or better performance as the Xbox 360. I'm hoping to max out if possible, but I'm on a budget so I nailed my decision down to the HD 4770 or the HD 4850. Both of them are close in price. I know the 4770 uses less power, and the 4850 is slightly better. I have a 585W power supply.
If you were me guys, what card would you get?
For about 100 USD an ATI Radeon HD 5670 is a pretty good deal considering its close to the 4770 but has dx 11. But imo its worth it to buy a 5770 for 159.99 since you get dx 11 and better performance than all the cards mentioned.
