Which board: HD4850, HD5670, GT9800, GT240......???
Hi Guys, I'm looking into a new graphics card around the £70-80 (there is some leeway here) and am very confused about whats better, 512mb or 1gb, GDDR3 with 512bit or GDDR5 with 128b bit etc.... Ive found some from website that seems quite cheap, any thoughts?:
all have 512 Mb memory but have different memory speeds etc and am having issues finding a clear favorite.
I have a: motherboard: asrock 4core1333-glan motherboard PSU: want to upgrade power supply so recommended wattage would also be helpful (current 350 which i think isn't enough) Intel core 2 due E8400 Windows XP (also looking to upgrade in the future so can use directx 10-11)
Currently have a GT 8600 which is dying and want to upgrade to a decent board

Also forgot to add I have a 1440 x 900 monitor and am unlikely to go much bigger than this soon
hmmm, I think ill try to go for the GTS 250 and upgrade the PSU, PNY website says 450w minimum. Is there much difference between the manufacturers? Found cheap 250's by gainwaird and ASUS (though ASUS is out of stock at moment).
or club 3D green edition
Current PSU is only 350W so will have to upgrade, but they aren't that expensive i don't think. Saw Aria.co.uk did their own brand game ones for around £25 for 550/600W
The cards say the minimum rating they need is 450W so surely i need a more powerful one anyway?
