I want to upgrade my C.P.U. My P.S.U is Value top 500w.My present graphics card is nvidia 9600gt.I love & enjoy physx effect,
But also want to play new coming games like Crysis 2,Deas space 2 etc.Now I want to buy a new graphics card.My Max Budged is
110$.Which card will best suitable for me - nvidia gt 240 for Physx or Ati redeaon HD 5670 for DX11 & Sheder model 5 also DDR5 memory.
Yes, HD5670 and GT240 are the same performance, but 5670 offer dx.11.
You will be fine with your current PSU, HD5670 is a very efficient card, it doesn't use much power.
What about the rest of your system?
bear with your current card a liitle longer and save money. the upgrade your looking at will not be worth it. Your current card should still play most games fine on medium detail settings. Im running an 8800gts 640mb, which is about as powerful as your card and it still plays games well enough for now
hd 5670 is better than both 9600gt and gt240 by 15-20% in most games, so if you want performance and dx11 5670 is the best choice at the same price of 9600gt-gt240.
just checked and he is right, but its more like 10-15%. crysis is 1 of the games where the 9600gt beats it. the 9600gt beats the gt240 in pretty much all of the games. so u could get the 5670 for the dx11 and slightly better performance but u would lose out on phsyx. according to rumours, the lower end cards in the 400 series will be releasing in the next few months so you could wait.
My L.C.D is of 19'' and max resolution is 1440x900.My present graphics card 9600gt is awesome.I have played most of new game like Crysis,Crysis-warhead,dead space,CNC-TT,Assassin's creed,Assassin's creed II etc. games at high resolution &
enabling every option in game menu.And also my card support Physx.But the problem is my recently my PC keep restarting.I have found that the problem is in Graphics card.So I want to buy a graphics card which is less then 110$ in price and need only 440W PSU.
