GTS 250 vs RADEON 4770

Before ordering gts 250 i want to be sure that it will enhance my video quality ... Ok i usually watch more DVD movies than gaming ... As i dont have any Blue-Ray player so i have to watch DVDs ... But i want a graphics card that will enhance my DVD's quality ...
But i didn't saw anything that claims "nvidia's PureVideo enhance SD video quality to HD" .
But i found in ATI's website about 48xx and 4770 that

"Enhanced DVD Upscaling-
Watch standard DVD movies in near high-definition quality with DVD upscaling. The GPU uses post processing algorithms to enhance standard and low resolution videos and movies on your HD display"

1)does it really work ? Any noticeable improvements ?

2)should i go for HD 4770 ?

I do light gaming . So HD 4770 isn't bad for me. I can sacrifice my light gaming for better video quality.
Thanks in advance...

    Both PureVideo and the ATI thing are pure bullsh.t. You will get the same video quality from both cards. So I suggest you to buy the cheapest.
  2. Lol. . . .PureVideo=PureBulls*it. . . .OK. . . Then i will go for gts 250. . . .But 512mb or 1gb for 1600x900 ?

    If the difference is not much go for the 1GB version. Otherwise don't bother.
  4. Yeah, I doubt you will see much difference for non-gaming purposes. To make a proper recommendation we need more information like your PSU, CPU, resolution and budget.
  5. yeah, u wouldn't need a powerful card to watching videos... :)
    But u said that u want to some light gaming, so we need more info about your specs, like cpu, ram, mobo, psu, monitor...
    And don't forget your budget too...
  6. Dual core e5200
    gigabyte ga-g31m-es2l
    2gb ram 800mhz(will upgrade to 4gb with gpu)
    samsung 750gb hdd
    Lg 20" 1600x900
  7. For gaming at that resolution I would recommend going for the more powerful card(GTS 250) as long as your PSU can handle it. The HD4850 is usually cheaper and offers similar performance however.
  8. PSU?
    Budget?
  9. Psu-Thermaltake 400w litepower w0162 . Calculated with psu calculator. All my components (including gts 250) will use 381w at extreme load. 12v1@14a and 12v2@16a.

    I have also decided to go for ecs gts 250 as i can afford it. Only bothering dvd upscaling issues. As ati claim to have the capability of improve the quality of SD content to almost HD quality. And i prefer to watch dvds than gaming.
