Hi all,
i now this might be be posted earlier but i didn't understand a thing about what they
were saying there :pfff:  , and i am pretty good with this things!

My specs of my build system:
AMD Phenom II X4 965
2GB Kingston Hyper X DDR2-800 @ cl5-5-5-15
Asus M4A785-M
HKC 6022GD Mid-tower

but due to Money restrictions i tough; lets stick a little time on the on board HD4200,
now I've seen how good it is i planned to do the graphics rather than extra DDR2 first.
The resolution im playing with is 1900x1080(full HD)
An friend of me is playing with the ATI 4870 on 1280x1080 and it looks quite nice so
i thought i might get one too, but then i saw the Nvidia GTX 260, ATI 4890 and the 5770/50.
what should i buy for playing games like : FSX. Rfactor. Test drive Unlimited. and other Sim. Games?
It has to be Under 225$

At the moment based on price I would select the HD5770 1GB although the HD4890 and GTX260 are more powerful they just cost to much for a small performance difference. That will leave you with extra money for the ram upgrade. Example http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Uh, the 5770 is faster than the GTX 260.

Here are you're options at 200$:

GTS 250 SLI>4850 512mb Xfire>Radeon 4890>Radeon 5770>GTX 260>GTS 250=4850.

That MOBO only has one PCI E 2.0 slot. So he is stuck with a single card option. I would get the 5770.

That card is a good choice with the dual lifetime warranty. Just remember to register within 30days.

I personally would select the cheaper of the two (Sapphire) because I will upgrade before a two year warranty runs out. To some people the XFX dual lifetime warranty is worth the extra money. They are both reputable manufacturers with good warranty support.
