Another Which card should i buy question :)

Hey guys looking to upgrade my old Radeon Hd 4850 512mb

I use it for watching movies and playing wow and cods and gta

My Psu is Corsair Tx650W

Cpu is Amd Athlon II X4 620

Motherboard is GA-MA785GT-UD3H

Memory is Xms3 Corsair DDr3 (not sure what kind cant find it on cpuz)

I got a pretty big case with two fans inside it

I usually use www.komplett.ie or www.overclockers.co.uk for parts


Looking to spend 120-150

I usually play on a Syncmaster t200hd at 1650x1050 but i got a 32" sharp that i somtimes hook it up to and would be nice to set the res a little higher if i wished without loosing quality.

Id propably like to stick with ati just because iv had a good experience with this card :)

Thanks :)

  2. There is no upgrade for you for 150 Euro that would be worth it. A 200 euro card would only increase the performance of games by a few percents... Crossfire is not an option either, as your second PCIe slot is x4 (instead of x16). Save more money, or wait a year or 2 to get a good boost for 150 euro.
  3. WOW and COD games favor Nvidia cards significantly.
  4. its over budget but I would at least get a gtx 460 1 gig / hd 6850 if you are upgrading from a 4850. There are cheaper options but you will not see a big increase from a 4850 which is still a decent lower/middle end gpu by todays standards imo. I just got a 6870 and am thrilled with its performance/price.
