Video card suggestion? HD4850 vs HD5770 Tags: Tuner Cards Graphics Cards Graphics Product Last response: April 26, 2010 12:21 AM in Graphics & Displays Share BC2210 April 25, 2010 4:39:56 PM Hey, So Im ordering a new video card because my 7600GT just aint cuttin' it anymore! Ha here is my current setup: 24" 1080p + 19" 1280x1024 AMD 2.6Ghz X2 2GB 800Mhz DDR2 Raptor HD I would like to get a pretty decent video card to be future proof. Decided to go with ATI this time for their performance vs price right now. May even build a new computer soon. So here are my two choices as of now: 4850 5770 For $25 more dollars, is it worth it to go to the 5770? Is my current setup holding this card back? Will the HD4850 be sufficient for the monitors I have? Thanks!
