Mid range graphic card for 1900x1080 gaming

Hello,

I am looking for the best value graphic card for playing strategy type games at full resolution in a 1080p LCD TV.

I don't even know where to begin looking in terms of specs, I suppose 1Gb VRAM is a must and also HDMI output, but I can't decide between ATI or NVIDIA and the myriad of models they have.

I am not a hard core gamer so I would not need the more fancy features, and I don't have a budget in mind as I don't really know what I'm looking for, but 250$+ cards are definitely out of my reach.

Thanks for your help.

  1. What games?

    Are you talking real time strategy or civilastion type strategy.
  2. Civilization, Tropico 3, Age of Empires type games
  3. Those do not require huge amounts of power.

    Looking here at the best gpu for the money article and I think you will have more than enough power in a 5770.

    Hell, you can probably go lower with the 5670 for those type of games but the 5770 will no doubt last you a while.
