Hi guys,

Iwas wondering what would be the best card for this setup. ( Im currently getting a Sapphire HD5670 512MB as a Christmas gift :D  )
I think that more than that will be held back by my other components?

MSI K9 V2 Neo
Nvidia Chipset nForce520
AMD Athlon X2 64 4400+
(OC to 2.5GHz )
Cooler Master Hyper 101
3GB of DDR2 667MHz RAM
400W Generic PSU

PS My budged is pretty limited and in my country prices are а бит higher (For example: US GTS 250 109USD - Bulgaria Same card 135USD)

Thanks :)

My monitor support a maximum resolution of 1680x1050.

I can get the Sapphire HD5750 512MB for just 25 USD more than the 5670, but then I would have to upgrade the PSU and probably the CPU atleast, thats why I'm considering the Sapphire HD5670.

Thanks for your replies.

5670 would be the best option, IMO. 1680*1050 is not as demanding as higher resolutions. Yeah, just get it :)

ОК, I'll get the Sapphire HD5670

Thanks a lot :)

I would upgrade platform and keep the HD 5670

^+1.The 4400+ is too weak by today's standards.

yeah hd 5670 is still good but never call gts 450 out.

I know it's week, that's why I'm getting the HD5670 and I've OC the CPU from 2.3GHz to 2.5GHz (I know it's not much, but I really don't want to spend more on a new CPU, and my Mobo supports only AM2). I'm not going to play too demanding games, so I think, I'll be fine. Besides compared to my 8400GS the HD5670 should be a lot better :)

Its OK then.The 5670 can play most games decently with medium settings with your CPU.

Thats what I'm hoping for :) 

Thanks for your reply.
