I know this is a common question, but which current budget video card would you recommend for an older stock HP system (SR1920NX) with a Lite On 300W PSU. Currently it has a 7600GT PCIe card installed, and runs it without problems. I'm looking to get some performance improvement, without any major investment in an older chasis. TIA.
Thanks for all your input.
I found some decent deals on 4670 and 5670 cards. I also found a deal on a GT 240 512mb DDR5 card, that seems to have performance numbers, and a price, in between the two Ati cards. Is this also a viable option in my situation?
How would you rate this GT 240 as compared to the HD 4670? I'm trying to balance performance with the economics of it. The 5670 is priced a bit higher than I was intent on spending, the 4670 is actually priced the same as the GT 240 now, but the GT comes with "free" games/utilities. If the 4670 is superior to the GT, in some aspects, I may go with it, or if the 5670 is that much better than both, I may just open the wallet a little.
I went with the GT 240. It was priced below a 4670, but came with 2 decent games and video editing software. A 5670 was significantly more, and I couldn't justify the extra cost considering my moderate gaming needs and the likelyhood that my older system would be a bottleneck for higher performance from it. Thanks again to all for the help!
