i dont know what graphics card should i buy for..... majority gaming and video editing... i can choose between gts 250, Hd 5770, and the HD 4890, the price difference is very low between them.... I have a 19" monitor with a maximum rezolution of 1280x1024 and i dont know what to do!!! rest of the system... planning to buy a Phenom 940, 4 gb ram, a mobo that could support all this (NO CROSSFIREX,SLI), and i need help! and forgive my spelling errors (im from Spain). thanks
Games i want to play:
Crysis, GTA 4 (mostly), Dirt2, Farcry 2 and the actual games on the market
NO DIRECTX 11 interest..... at all...
As you are not bothered about DX11 or other features then just go on price between the 5770 and the 4890.
I would suggest you get the 5770 though as its the newer tech and as such will serve you better for longer.
i have a 800w power supply waiting for this new PC i guess i´ll change my monitor but not so soon, maybe 7-8 months ¡, a year maybe... thank your for your replys! im doin some research but i still need help... thanks
Another thing to take into account is that the Driver updates and improvements for newer games and games yet to be released will be targeted more towards the 5 series and will be relevant to the 5 series for longer than they will for the 4 series.
