ATI 4670 a good card???

Hi

I might get ATI 4670, 1GB for some cheap bucks, so just wanted to know if its good.

Currently i have Geforce 9400 GT with 2.6GHZ Dual Core.

Check the below link

Through this it looks like its good, but is it good upgrade, my Monitor resolution is 1440x900.

Can i play all games like RE5 etc at high settings with AA off with it, please tell.

  1. Hello :)
    It will give you a significant boost in gaming and will play RE5 on high settings fine
    Another good option would be HD 5770 if you can afford it

    i am getting it around 35$, so should i go for it?? Will i be able to play games like RE5, GTA IV, Conviction etc at high settings without any AA? & do i need to upgrade my PSU, Geforce 9400 GT works fine with my current CPU...????

    35$ is an awesome price for that card.
    It will run games at that resolution for a while. I would say that you should go for it!

    I don't think GTA 4 will run in high settings due to your CPU(Dual cores are insufficient).

    Rest it should run all the games at 1440X900. Some with high settings and some with medium-low settings.

    But since you're getting it for $35 only, just get it, use it for a while(as long as it runs games at that resolution ), and then sell it!!
  6. $35 for a 4670?! wow that's awesome :D
    All GPU limited games will run on high setting on your resolution but in some games like GTA IV which benefit from a faster CPU(And also it isn't very well optimized either)you may need to run it on medium settings(however its said that a patch has come for it which gives FPS boost)

    Dual core is "sufficient", but it could hold the game back. I played the game on an E8400 (3GHz) and a 8800 GTS 512MB and it was playable.

    i am able to play GTA IV with 1280x1024 with some of settings to low and some to medium, with my dual core & some games like Gears of War, Burnout Paradise, MW2 with 4AA at 1440x900 without any lag with 9400 GT.

    Settings might have been medium (most probably custom), not sure, but I played at 1680x1050. It wasn't super-smooth, but playable without me loosing my temper once. You also have to understand that some display settings have higher costs than other without necessarily giving a noticeable difference. Oh, and I played on Vista 64 bits with 4GB of RAM (which is another thing GTA IV like: RAM).
  12. thanks, mazier, shubham & zenthar for your help.

    BTW shubham, that sell idea is great, my friend is buying it from NZ, i might actually play it for some time and then sell it with same price or slight more :D
