  1. Budget?
  2. The ATi Radeon HD 5870 is the best card that has a 500W PSU minumum. It's a great card, enjoy! :sol:
  3. Monitor resolution?
    Plan SLI or CF?
  4. lol,i would wonder that if he had $100 as budget and you would say him hd 5870 as recommendation.
  5. aight guys, i have $500 budget, monitor resolution 1680x1050 to 1920x1200 (1680 more likely) Definetly not SLI or CF plan, just a powerful single card.
  6. For that budget, GTX580 ($500) or GTX570 ($350).

    Edit: Sorry, I forgot about your power supply, the 580 needs about 650 watts. The 570 needs 600 watts.
  7. For your budget+PSU I think HD6850/HD6870 is more suitable...
    That would be enough to maxed out almost anything at 1680x1050.
  8. yea, that seems good, HD 6870. Thanks wa1
