Which one should I choose? I will be using a 19' monitor... so I will be playing at a resolution of 1240X800 or lower... Newer tehnology or more memory?

here are the candidates:

If you can spring the extra cash, the HD5770 beats them all. Though it's overkill for your resolution..

If you're planning on upgrading your monitor soon I'd go with the 1Gb GTS450. However if you're keeping your 19'' monitor for quite some time, you won't notice too much of a difference with the GTS450 and GTS250; get whichever's cheapest. Either card will play every game your resolution quite comfortably.

Alternatively look for the HD5750. If it's cheaper than the GTS450 then it too is also a good buy.

Actually one can very easily max all of them out at that res with very little effort. Most are cheating by using high end quads and reducing certain settings such as AA and AF filtering.

Of cards you listed the 450 is easily the best buy.

I agree. If you are going to be using that monitor for a few more years then 512mb will be fine and the GTS 450 is a better card.

To appeal to those who think or want a 1GB card at any cost even if it is slower.
