I am finalizing my parts for my new budget gaming computer, and I need some help deciding on the graphic card. The graphic card is planned to be upgraded in 1-2 years later.
I built this computer considering future-upgrades. There might be possible Duo-Monitor Set up. I consider H55/57 chipset with i3 processor, so I can put the integrated GPU on the less stressful output, with the graphic card handle the games and other intensive programs. (or maybe its better for the discrete graphics card to handle both?)
APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: Before July 20th, 2010 (basically next week)
BUDGET RANGE: For the Graphic Card....Less than $130 Canadian after tax ($$$$), after rebates
USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Gaming while Youtube-ing... (SC2, TF2, Diablo 3, Civ 5), ......some Photoshop / MS office 2010 stuff ( I alt-tab a lot)
CURRENT GPU AND POWER SUPPLY: New Rig, Going with a mATX board (1x PCIe 2.0 X16...), will be using i3-530 for now (Will be OC'ing) , until future upgrade (see system specs)
