PARTS PREFERENCES: No preferances, I just want the most performant for my money.
SLI OR CROSSFIRE: No
MONITOR RESOLUTION: I don't have a monitor.
ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: So yeah, now you can help me choose the best Video card for my budget, but hey if you have any suggestions for any other parts (as I'm not updating a video card, I'm building a new PC) don't be shy. Also, if you see a reply, please don't simply skip this thread with the thought that my problem has been solved, because I prefer different opinions.
Due to what you said above, a HD 5770 would be a really good choice. It can run any game out on the market right now, and they do tend to oc well enough if you care to do so. You can nab them for between $90-150, depending on model/vendor and used or new, on ebay, newegg, etc.
A 5770 would meet your needs. So would an a Phenom II x2 or Athlon II x3 or x4. Too bad you missed the 5870 for $199 last week. That was by far the best deal.
You should post a new thread for a new build and we'll rework and optimize the whole thing for your needs and price range. Here's a quick build that is awesome for whatever price range it's at (American dollars, sorry).
Okay I looked after your video cards and I know you have chosen a video card for my needs, and are around 150-200, which is great, but I can go up to 250$, so even if I don't need it for my actually usage, I would like you to help me choose a nice one around 250$. The reason is simple. Even I won't need that high performant video card for my acutal usage, you have to know that I won't update my video card for years, so I want a great one today, that will still be performant in the next 3-4 years. Also, I read about video card that the GPU is responsible for most of the performance of a video card, however, I found video cards with the same GPU, but 150-200 dollars in difference. That confuses me, should I invest more on the GPU, for example, get the cheapest video card with the highest GPU possible, or the highest video card with a cheaper GPU? I don't know if you will understand my point, but I have to find a good balance for my 250$.
Thankh you guys for your help, really appreciated.
But you know, you save $150 getting a 5770 and if you spend that same $150 on a card in two years, it will be much better than a $250 card today. But if you want to spend $250 today, you should get the HD 6950 2GB.
