and the mother board i am using is asus P5G41T-M LX
I AM AGAIN STUCK WITH
5670 and gt 240.... culd u be more specific as becoz i m poor in comp hardware...
is it xfx ati randeon hd 5670 or ATI Radeon HD 5670 or Nvidia GT 240 and wat about
Gigabyte GV-N98TSL-1GI graphics card(based on 9800 gt).
can u pls give me the order of decreasing preference...!!pls.
hey i also want the same as you i would suggest you hd 5670 or 9800gt,if you dont give a damn about dx11 get 9800gt for sure,or even 8800gt since they are both same,try to find 8800gt.otherwise 9800gt or hd 5670 will do fine.
XFX is just a brand name. You can't actually buy an "ATI" card, they're all made by brands like XFX, HIS, Sapphire, PNY, MSI etc... doesn't really matter which you buy because they're all the same card. Biggest difference is usually the cooling. Same goes for Nvidia cards.
9800GT is fine, it's basically the same as a GT240 just older. I'd take the 240 over a 9800.
oh common now gt 240 has 96 cores and 54.4gb bandwidth however 9800gt has 112 cores and 57.6 memory bandwidth.9800gt is even better and its good for everygame as its recommended in today's current games.
I suppose you're right, however, I did a quick look at Newegg for GPUs based on price and there's a GTX250 for the same price as a 9800GT, both of which are slightly above his max amount. Ulitmately OP should just get the fastest he can afford... maybe use this as a reference: http://www.videocardbenchmark.net/high_end_gpus.html
