But i don't know if there is anything better out there for this price, does anyone know if there is anything better and what one i should go with out of them two? I'm just looking to run newer games at fair speeds.
current setup =
CPU1) Intel® Core™2 Duo CPU E6750 @ 2.66GHz @ 1973MHz (Gigabyte Technology Co., Ltd. P35-DS3R mainboard) (RAM) 4GB, 2.08GB free (HDDs) 1.31TB, 923GB free
• (VGA1) NVIDIA GeForce 8500 GT (512MB), 1024x768x32, 60Hz (OS) Microsoft Windows 7 Enterprise 32-bit
also i have an 600w rosewell powersupply if that matters.
I'm running it at the same res as yours and am more than happy with everything!
I also agree with anonymousdude above: The 5750 has DX11, while the GTS250 is DX10, so the ATI will help you with upcoming titles. But keep in mind that the 5750 is 128-bit and the GTS250 is 256-bit, which makes it better than the 5750. So you'll need to take a call on how badly you want DX11.
Also, if you're planning on running at your present res, a 1 gig card won't do justice to the money spent coz the extra 512mb will only be utilized on higher resolutions.
If i was u, id add just 20 more bucks and get 5770, but if your budget is strictly 130 u still got few options:
1) U can go for 4870, u can still get it here. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
yes this is previous generation videocard, it lacks dx11 support, and not as power efficient as 57xx cards, but dont forget that in terms of performance in most cases it was better than 5770 and gtx260...
Well if i did step up to the 5770 and added the extra 20$ would there be a better card i could get for that price other than the 5770? I kind of perfer NVIDIA, but would the 5770 be my best bet for a 150$ card?
5770 is the best at 150$! Btw i have an E6750 too and i had to Overclock it to get most out of my 5670.. 5770 is like 50-70% better than the 5670 so u'll have to Overclock your processor atleast 40% to fully utilize the 5770. But otherwise, 5770 is awesome.. it has cool temperature, dx11, eyefinity and other small stuff.
I d just go for 5770. Its much more power efficient than one u have listed, its dx11 capable, its overclockable, performance is comparable and if u ever decide to get a second one for crossfire - it scales very good, and what is also important - u will have warranty. With XFX it would be lifetime btw. And if u really want to save few bucks just go for 4870 it will cost u~130 brand new, but its my personal opinion.
All of these have their pros and cons. HD5750 has DX11 and runs the coolest/quietest. GTS 250 has PHYSX and CUDA support. The HD4850 is the cheapest (not sure if it has any performance advantage, you'd need to check benchmarks.)
My advice is the HD5750 unless PhysX or CUDA is a must.
