Best GPU under $150

Hi I'm looking for an video card to play games like splinter cell conviction, sims 3, world of warcraft, test drive unlimited, need for speed world, scarface and etc. I'm leaning to a 460 gtx 768 mb 192 bit or any similar card within my budget price of $150 or less. Other cards that i like is 5770, gts 450, 4850 or etc. Feel free to add any more cards just at least its 4000 series for the ati and nvidia of 200 series or better thanks. Also with at least memory interface of 192 or higher.


My Specs:


AMD Athlon II X3 440 3.0 GHz, Cosair 4096MB (DDR2) Memory RAM, Seagate 500 GB Barracuda 7200.12 Hard Drive, Monitor: Samsung 19 inch Widescreen LCD Flat Panel Monitor 932BW+ (Max Resolution 1440 x 900) , Operating System: Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit (6.1, Build 7600), XION XON-500P01N 500W With +30 amps PSU and Motherboard: ASUS M4A785-M.

  1. I'd go for the asus CuCore 5770 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814121363&cm_re=hd_5770-_-14-121-363-_-Product

    If you can afford $20 more, go for this gtx 460 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814125334

    The 5770 will perform very well on that resolution and the gtx 460, even better.
  2. Normally i wouldn't advise going for the 768MB version of the GTX 460 but with your screen size i'd say you could get away with it. However the 5770 has inherently more memory for your games to chew on but will be outperformed by the GTX 460. Personally i'd go with the 460, i have one and they are brilliant. I know that people speak very favorably of the 5770 too and at your resolution i wouldn't say you'd have a problem with either.
  3. MSI GTX 460 Superoverclock 768 MB Twin Frozr II - $145 after rebate.

    that's cool, it's listed above too...

    Just putting in my vote.
  5. 768MB GTX460 all the way. Much better then the 5770.
  6. I have only one thing to say: ATi Radeon HD 4870 1GB by XFX w/Assassin's Creed - $120 ($90 after mail-in-rebate)

    This card pwns all 5770s. Sure, it doesn't have DX11 or EyeFinity but let's be honest here, how many games use DX11 and how many people game with 3 monitors? For pure horsepower, this is the best deal on the planet.
  7. I picked up the PNY GTX 460 XLR8 Superclocked 1GB on TD for $159.99 during Black Friday sales. Looks like you get some pretty stellar performance for a good price.
