LF GPU for Phenom II x6 1090T Tags: Graphics Cards Build Graphics Product Last response: November 25, 2010 10:53 AM in Graphics & Displays Share Hawkgirl November 25, 2010 6:10:44 AM I'm looking to build a computer for some gaming, but mostly art, animation and video orientated usuage. I have the build done except for the graphics card. Some friends keep telling me to go for 5870 but I wonder if it's really worth the money. I didn't want to spend more than $250 for the card. Looking on newegg for the parts. Monitor: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Memory: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
