Hello, I would like to know what graphics card would be the best for playing Age of Conan, that is around $220 I play the game at 1680x1050, but i dont really care if i have to go lower as long as im not lower then 1280x720. It doesnt matter what congiuration Crossfire/SLI/ 1 video card and it can be Nvidia or ATI. I am going to be either using the new Phenom II x6 1050T or the i5-750 im leaning towards the i5-750 though, but i dont want to get off topic. Im kinda thinking 9800 GTX+ SLI, GTX 260, GTS 250 SLI, HD 5770 Crossfire, or HD 5830. But im not sure wich will do the best in Age of Conan, Im kinda hesitant to go for ATI with Age of Conan because with the Nvidia logo they put in the "previews" when you load the game. its almost as if they purposely make Nvidia better for that game but Im not sure, and there isnt that many Age of Conan benchmarks out there so i dont really have a way of knowing by myself what card to use.

Well, the nVidia logo showing up every time the game loads is just because game developers worked with nVidia to help optimise the game for nVidia cards. I suggest you buy an HD 5830 or HD 4850 CrossFireX for your price budget.

heh a 5770 will run AoC fine. I ran it on high settings with an 8800, unless they totally reworked it in the few years since then, the 5770 should be fine for you.
