Hi, recently i had to send my HD 4870 512mb back because of a Vram fault and i got a full refund and i now have £130. I was wondering what would be the best choice of graphics card for this price?
I will be running on a 1240X1024 res monitor.
For your resolution then HD5670 is enough.
Also, OC your CPU a little bit (3.0GHz are great), that's should help a lot.
2.2 to 3.0 seems a bit hazardous, he could easily go 2.6GHz with no issues.
All of the money, you can go for a 5770.
Something that'll work great at that resolution : a 4850.
Cheaper and less performance then your previous card, but it'll run fine and let you save up for a larger monitor if you wanted.
