  1. lol yeah i know , but the good cards are about $100-200
    what should i do ?
    im on a budget of $50 ha
  2. Then stay with your current card and save some money to get a new card... :)
  3. lol ok then ill stick with the radeon hd 4200 512 mb haha
    thanks alot =]
    i was thinkin about saving
    what do you think is the best card for a budget that
    gives good enough performance ?
  4. Get at least GT240 or HD4670/HD5670, that's around $70-$90...
  5. TD is showing a ddr3 9500gt for 49.99, thats quite a bit higher than what you have now on the gpu hierarchy chart and your first option.

  6. Now a days, a $50 graphics card isn't worth buying because you'll replace it a month later and could have saved $50 for a night out ;].

    Either save up and get a $100-200 card, or make do with what you already have.

    (ebay can be your friend).
  7. if i decide to get the 4670
    like a 1GB GDDR2

    are some cards that are GDDR2 better than GDDR3 ?

    and if so why ?

    thanks for all the help you guys / girls

  10. ok, you're good with that card. :)
  11. The HD4670 is a good little card for the money, and who knows.. but the time you've saved another $30 maybe a better card will be at that price on ebay or something?
