More about what video card
  1. An HD5770. The E5300 isn't a powerful processor, and it'll suffer from an HD4890.
  2. ^+1
    That processor OC easily and well and should handle 3.3-3.5ghz just on the stock cooler. You motherboard should handle it easily as well.
    Forget about the HD4890 and choose between the HD5770 and the GTX 460.
  3. 5770 1gb

    OC well

    Cheap

    require a lot less power and generate a lot less heat than a 460, and are can be found in very small formats.

    460 would be an overkill for ur system anyway.
  4. It wouldn't be overkill if he OCs the processor and has a high resolution monitor.
    Resolution is a good question actually as it is important when picking out a card so tell us your monitors native resolution.
  5. i got a hp w1707 monitor that runs at 900x1440 its 720 p if that matters
  6. its 17inch i think
  7. At that resolution just get the HD5770. It is already overkill. If you are going to upgrade to 1920x1080 before too long then consider the GTX 460.
  8. aight man thanks
