Im looking for a new graphics card to replace my Gainward GeForce 8600GT 512MB GDDR3. I need it for playing CSS, BF2 and TF2 so Im not looking for the best one. My computer is two years old so I'm looking for a improvement but I don't want to go overkill on the graphics. My motherboard only have PCIe 1 (not 2). I guess I'm mostly looking for a ATI card.
So I'll just list my system here and ask for the help of you fine, competent people!
For $120-$130, Get a Radeon 5750 HD, It will give you good performance upto 1920x1200
For $160-$170, Get a Radeon 5770 HD. It will give you great performance upto 1920x1200
Both will support:
DirectX11 Shader Model 5.0
Bith are new cards, will be good for more than two years or so.
For your type of gaming, I recommend an HD5670 for $100. It's quite cheap, and will run the games listed (I'm not sure about BF2) on MAX on the highest resolutions. My HD4650 maxes out CS:S/Tf2 already.
Thanks for your quick replys! That gives me an idea of what to look for in the grapics card djungle. Perhaps I'll go shopping today then
