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.

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.
