I understand USD $60 budget is too less, i don't play games and i have to choose a graphics card just because my chosen processor doesn't have integrated graphics memory.
Please suggest me a medium performance graphics card for my below new Desktop Computer which i will be buying in 15days.
Also let me know what graphical DDR memory type should i use for my desktop. Does DDR2 Graphic card usage reduces the performance of my DDR3 1333MHz desktop?
---BELOW IS MORE DETAILS--------- BUDGET RANGE: USD $60
USAGE: home theater/watching Full HD movies, I don’t play games
POWER SUPPLY: Not choosed Power Supply yet, Please suggest me good one accordingly.
OTHER RELEVANT SYSTEM SPECS: Intel Core i5 760, 2.8GHz, 4 core, 4 thread, DH55HC Inter Mobo, H55 chipset, 4GB DDR3 1333MHz RAM, LCD Monitor
MONITOR RESOLUTION: 1680x1050 and above
ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: Though my chosen processor doesn’t have integrated Graphics card/memory, I have to choose an external graphics cards for good graphical display and also as I’m using this computer for career perspective, I would also use computer to watch Full HD movies at regular times...
my processor i5 760 doesnt hae any internal graphics memory, so i have to choose one external card. Please advice one for below USD $50.
(what card to choose, the GDDR, the memory and manufacturer of the card.)
Many Thanks for your good suggestion; so now I am almost closer to choose the graphics card.
I reviewed the specification of both from the links given by you,
ATI Radeon HD 5450 gives PCI Express 2.1 and Nvidia GT 210/GT220 gives PCI Express 2.0, my mother board DH55HC support PCI Express 2.0., so which is good to choose? ATI Radeon or Nvidia's GT 210/220 ??
Also ATI HD 5450 supports DirectX 11, but GT 210/220 supports DirectX 10.1
1) So based on above two comparison differences, please advise which to choose? GeF GT 210/220 or ATI Radeon HD 5450
Another 2 last questions:
2) Does the Graphics RAM size of 1024MB v/s 512MB helps in ripping/converting a video to other formats faster?
3) What size of monitor best suits to watch with resolution? 18.5" or 20" or 22".
I prefer to buy a 20" monitor, but I would go with your opinion with respect to resolution & clarity.
Please answer me for those 3 queries, and my request will be almost complete except one last question which I will ask after your suggestion to these queries. And I would go ahead and purchase one :-)
pciexpress 2.1 is compatable with 2.0. I would go with the gt210 or ati 5450 and you dont need more than 512mb. Just get whatever is cheapest. The gt220 will be a bit faster for 3d but still not enough to play the latest games. You can chose whatever monitor size you like, it will work fine with any. Ripping/converting video is entirely CPU and hard drive speed dependant, doesnt use your video card. Dont expect to be playing any 3d games on the cards I have mentioned, they are too slow for that.
