Hi, I'm buying a new graphics card. I'm currently running a:
Nvidia 9300 GE 256 MB
AMD Phenom X4 9550 Quad Core
I'm spending $300 total. About $100 for a 500+W PSU (+shipping). BTW suggestions are appreciated for this too.
The rest will be spent on the graphics card (+shipping).
I wanted to get an ATI because I do a lot of gaming/video editing/Flash/Photoshop and I don't particularly like the Nvidia drivers. The colors seem off. Secondly, it needs to run sort of cool since I don't have much in the way of cooling. Whether it can run in crossfire or not doesn't matter since my motherboard won't support it. I also would like it to 1 GB of video RAM if possible. Whatever you may decide I would like it to perform at least on par with an ATI Radeon 4770 512MB. Finally it does not need to have DX 11 support since I won't be playing those games until I do a total upgrade of my pc.
