hey guys i'm looking to buy a new video card for my new budget gaming rig and i just cannot decide what would be the best graphics card for me(I'm a casual gamer, but i like to crank up the eye candy)
i'm fairly knowledgeable about computers (i've built 3)
so i know how to OC and modify fan speeds

here is my system:

CPU = Phenom II X4 @ 3.4 Ghz
PSU = Coolermaster 650 watt
MB = Gigabyte MA790GX-Ud3H
RAM = Gskill DDR3 1333
Case = Zhalman full tower( its old so i don't know exactly what model it is)
and i'm running XP Home

So I'm Just Looking for opinions from Pro's ;) 

More about : 5770 5750 gts 250 4850

Out of those HD5770 is the best the other three trade blows but are all good cards for a casual gamer. Since you are still running XP you can not take advantage of the DX11 support of the HD5xxx series I would recommend getting the card you get for the best price.

4850 ties the 250 1gb same way as the 4870 ties the 260 so yeah cheapest is best with those.

:o  Awesome i'll go with the Sapphire 4850. Thanks notty22!

Oh.. BTW i'm have a dell ultrasharp 22" monitor that runs at 1920 by 1080 resolution, are you sure that the 4850 512mb can handle games good at that resolution?

I play mostly SupCom1 &2, SOASE, and Command&Conquer 3

Thanks again for the quick replys guys!

Yeah, that HD4850 is a fantastic deal but the card will be weak for 1920x1080. You are better off spending more for an HD5770.

yeah i was going to get the HD5770, but i had to get a new card soon cause my old one was crapping out on me(freezing, crashing, monitor juts going black at times) but i think i will try to save up and replace the 4850 with an 5770 this summer.
it's just that i needed a fairly powerful card for really cheap. and i couldn't wait to save up for a 5770:( 
but i got the 4850 off newegg for $85 free shipping!!

but okay so i will look for a good sale on a 5770 this summer then. Thanks
