Which would you buy?

VTX ATI Radeon HD 5770 1024MB GDDR5 PCI-Express Graphics Card
Asus GeForce GTS 250 1024MB GDDR3 PCI-Express Graphics Card
XFX ATI Radeon HD 4890 1024MB GDDR5 PCI-Express Graphics Card

I have PCI-E x16 and a 1680x1050 display
All above I have sourced as roughly the same price

More about which
  1. Whats the rest of your system?
    The GTS 250 is definitely overpriced.

    Get the HD4890 is you have a beefy PSU, doesn't care about heat has don't need DX11.

    If not, HD5770, though Im not too sure about VTX.
  2. 2 dual core 3Ghz
    2gig ram
  3. My PSU is rated at 550, is that enough?
  4. What brand/model is it? It should run the HD5770 fine, but the 4890 could have a problem its its not a quality one.
  5. Ill have to open up and have a look, but the sytem is a dell precision 470 which I know meens nothing so ill have a look inside.
  6. Make sure it fits though, those dell have a tendency to be BTX which sucks for dual-slot cards.
  7. Oh my god im out of touch do you mean sli? by saying dual slot as I only have one PCI-E slot?
  8. lol, no..

    I'm saying all three cards you listed take up 2 slots , but some Dell systems Ive seen with BTX boards have trouble fitting even single-slot cards
  9. well im not sure but i have 4 slots to the left of the pci-e and only one is taken with my wireless card, does that help?
  10. well i'm off for my bed as im best man on fri and need my sleep
