I'm coming close to being finished with the satisfaction of my on-board GPU and am now about ready for an upgrade.
I've done a lil bit of research on a few of the ATI chipsets and I kind of like the price and performance reports of the HD5670's. However, I am still very undecided. I'm really trying to keep the card to about $100. If there's any input, it would be greatly appreciated!

This is better bang for buck in my opinion as it is faster and at the same price.You should need at least a good brand 450w psu to support it though.The 5670 has dx11 but it doesn't really have the muscle to let you enjoy dx11 gaming at high resolutions in most cases.Just my 2 cents;p

I researched the 4850... I don't see many outstanding reviews to be honest. I'm not nockin' your suggestions, I'm just wondering why the 4850? what's your experience with them?
Oh and mosox.. I love me some newegg.com lol! and chiefvalue.com as well, because shipping is quick and awesome and it's close to me lol

That is, if you're gaming.


I must say that I just reviewed this card... very impressive... and that's where the extra spending hits me lol... I'm always like "If I pay just 'this much' more then it can be so much better" lol good pick though. I may go with that. I suppose I will find out my selection, when I get paid Friday.
Thanks!!!

The 5750 isn't a great improvement from the 4850.They're pretty much the same performance wise.The basic difference betwee them is that the 5750 has dx11.
