im looking to get a decent graphics card in which i will get like constant 240 fps on cod 4 and i can watch HD movies.. i play quite a bit of games and stuff so maybe a gaming graphics card? but not too expensive round about 85$ or so which should i get?
You won't achieve that high of a frame-rate just by plopping in a fast graphics card alone, your whole system needs to be capable. If your bottlenecked by another part for instance your frame-rate will cap until you upgrade that other component.
Also the size and resolution of your screen makes a big difference (ill assume 1080p).
My setup is in my sig as a for instance:
@1680x1050 default driver settings [except max perf and single display perf modes]
and no AA or AF
~240 -450 on the snow mobile level
~100 -300 on the terrorist slaughter level
assuming that the rest of your system is fairly capable then you should have a look at the ATI 5670, it should give smooth frame rates on COD at high settings and most other games, and it'll easily play blu-ray and hd movies
ok well i just came into a bit of money so ive increased to 100$+- and my resolution is 1920x1080 and i got a Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Quad CPU.. cod 4 240 fps isnt my main concern, but is nice as it increases jumping and various things.. also with my new screen.. the LED BX2331 my dvdrip movies and others are worse quality due to stretching.. so shouldnt a better graphics card help a bit with that?
