HD 5670 would be better than all of these. but best of these would be HD 5570 and GT 430 2GB, cause they have Dx11, 9800GT is a fast card but it doesn't support Dx11, only the Dx10

you would get more FPS with 9800GT but no Dx11

didn't say he wouldn't be able, just saying that it hasn't got DX11, i had it before, it was a good card..

So why worry about not having DX11 then? For a low budget picking up a 9800GT or GTS250 is fine. Sometimes you have to accept that you can't have what you want.

is it too expensive? i dont know what currency that is but it seemed like the best bang for buck lol


actually i can afford it. its Philippine peso. :) )

@Derbixrace
I can afford it too. :) 

So between Inno3D GTS450 512ddr5 128b hdmi vs GeForce GTS 250 512MB 256-bit DDR3?
which one should i get?

i just need to play it at 720p, maintaiin FPS around 40-50, high graphic settings on games like mafia 2, crysis 2, metro2033 and the reason why im upgrading is because of rage.

also i have a 450 watts psu.

you cant find a 1gb card?? see if you can get a HD5750 1gb or gts450 1gb. to fit your budget. 512mb is not enough these days. You will not likely get 40-50 fps in any of those games with your setup even with a vid card upgrade. your cpu is too slow and to get good fps in those games a good cpu and higher end gfx card like a gtx560 is required.

so between Palit GTS250 1gb ddr3 256bit vs Gigabyte HD5670 OC 1gb ddr5 vs Inno3D GTS250 1gb ddr3 256b dual dvi vs Palit GTS250 1gb ddr3 256bit?

Which one should i get then? i want to use it for many years?
im going to upgrade my CPU by september when RAGE gets released. phenom 2 x4 upgrade by september :) 

also want to know how many FPS seperates these card, because if the difference is just 5fps, im just gonna go with the cheapest one. Im also playing xbox360 and ps3, so my money is pretty tight.

forget the 5670 the gts250 is significantly faster. if the 1gb gts250 is all you can afford, then get that. but where i live you can get a 5750 for the same price, which is just as fast as a gts250, but uses less power and has dx11 support. Between the differrent gts250's get whichever 1gb model has the best warranty or best cooler or whatever is cheapest, all the gts250's should perform the same unless they are an oc'd version
