so basicly im asking if i should get the geforce 250 or a better ati with a symalar price. im running a amd phenom 9750 quad processor with 8gigs of ddr2 ram and my current graphics card is a nvidia geforce 9500GS. i got a 600w psu. i want to be able to run games like MW2 and WoW on max graphic details with good fps. so which card should i get?

On the monitor a GTS 250 or an ATI card of similar performance(HD5750/HD4850) should be very good. If your television is 1080p however I would recommend at least an HD5770.

is your flat screen full hd or 720p, but from ati, you'd be looking at a 4850, for about $100 bucks which is about the same as a gts250, the 5750 for 120-135 maybe alittle better performance then the 4850, and the 5770hd for about 140-150 would be the on the about 20 30% better then the 250

i think that its 720p because ive seen it say 720 something somewere but im not 100% on that. it was given to me by my bro b4 he went into the military so i didnt get a manual or anything. but im guessing my 3 top picks are the 250 4850 and 5770?

Yeah, any of those cards should be good for 720p. The HD5770 and HD5750 are also DX11 compatible while the others are not so you may want to favor them if you can afford one.

according to this test

a HD 4850 can run Modern Warfare 2 Maxed out DX9 4xAA/0xAF @ 1680x1050 at 60FPS


http://www.techspot.com/article/219-cod-modern-warfare-...

this benchmarks say GTS 250 1GB is faster than HD 4850 in most games






they also say GTS 1GB consumes less power in both IDLE and LOAD






i would recommend you to get either a GTS 250 1GB or HD 4850 1GB if you want the most bang for the buck for your needs


both of these cards look very attractive and have non-reference design which means lower idle and load temperature :)
