Any self respecting gamer would avoid the fodder and the trash cards. GTX 460 or 6850 or it is a cheap 5770. The GF106 and 116 like the 6790 are money waster cards.

well im on a budget, looking for the best card for around that price. like 140-50 without the rebates, so around 120-30 after rebates.. so please dont link me a card that is 160$. it happens a lot.. people always tell me to get something better. im not a hardcore gamer and i dont need the BEST, i just need something good for around that price. GTX 550 ti, or HD5770, around those cards prices..

Well I am rather thankful for my dirt cheap cards like my $32 fixer upper 8800gtx or my $51 3870. Modern cards are such a disappointment. I suggest that you save for just a little longer and then buy a better card. The gts 450 and the gtx 550ti are horrible cards when used as a single card. The 6790 is no better and is another cut down card. Why waste the money on such underpowered cards? For the money you are getting a lot more for your money for just a little more cost. I have learned the hard way on my own money so take my advice save for a little longer or dig just a little deeper.

a 5770 is still ok for anything less than 1920x1080 res, and some games it will play ok at that res. even a gts450 is ok (only the OC versions). but generally a gtx460 or 6850 are what you want if you plan to game at that res.

Gts 450 and Gtx 550 are going to be a great card for you dont listin to these Idiots. For example a gts 450 1gb can max out bad company 2 at 1920x1080p high settings. You'll enjoy it.

I bet you get about 20 as a minimum fps in bfbc2, don't ever insult me again... your the one running a gts 450 with a 2600k (talk about a balanced system) and its fine if your not a big gamer but claiming that your performance is "fine" is debatable, unless if by "fine" your meant marginal.

from the charts I see you can average 39 fps thats great man now that I know that it would be obvious to anyone who has ever played the game that your fps drops into the 20s and teens likely, this is not good performance imo... remember 39 is an average not a constant fps

I had a 6870 which averaged fps in the 50s still had dips below 30 fps on occasion, it was unsatisfactory,

with my current gpu (gtx 570) the minimums never really go below 55-58 any any given time and the averages are well above that...

the gts 450 is fine but I would def not recommend that to someone that is trying to game at 1080p, I'd say for 1080p the lowest card that should be considered is a gtx 460/ 6850, but thats just my opinion no need to tell me that I know jack *** when I really do know what I'm talking about, maybe I am more anal than you and everyone is entitled to their opinion but if I was gaming at 1080p I would never consider a gts 450...

first you say the 450 "maxes out" (as anyone can plainly see) BFBC2, that is really were you started to go horribly wrong making that statement and then suggesting "fodder cards" as someone put it.

This is for the benefit of the OP to help make their new purchase

Ok, Still a gtx 550 is going to be slightly better then a 5770 in some way in other its not its a toss up. IMO get a gtx 550ti if that all you can afford. Otherwise save up for a better card gtx 570/6950 Or somewhere along those lines. Even a 5870 will be a good choice they are all on rebate if you can afford roughly 150-180$.

yeah I agree that it is better (barley) then a 5770 and it costs around 20-30 more so its a toss up. C'mon you have no rebuttle for the gts 450 "maxs/is fine" argument? You tell me I don't know jack *** then when I explain where I am coming from you say nothing, what is you opinion on the matter?

The 460 1gb model is a great card at that price. On the other hand it's a Sparkle brand, which I forgot existed after a few years but I generally don't like their cooling and design take on models.
Over the 550 vs 5770, the 5770 is slightly cheaper (although you'll find many equally priced to some 550ti models) to a 550 while remaining better under power and cooling. If it's a toss up between a 120$ to 120$ card, the 550 version would be my choice. Besides that you have the generic Nvidia stuff such as CUDA support and mainly stable drivers. But if a 5770 model is less than 10$ of the 550 then the 5770 would be my choice simply due to lower power and heat.

A 768mb model beats a 5770 in performance per price, so the 1gb version is better in many regions along with the generic Nvidia features.
But I wouldn't take a Sparkle model...

Yes & No, it doesn't match the same speeds as a 5850 but has better wattage consumption. In your case it's not anymore beneficial over a 460 or even a 5850.

Can you please post what components you have inside your PC before we start giving you advice?
You might end up buying a 6970 and install it on a P4 platform (ha ha ha).

EDIT: if you can not afford a better card the guys that do not like the trashy middle end cards will help you buy an enthusiast card(irony).

If it is the 1gb version then yes, If its a 768mb stay away from it.


With the sparkle at $125 AR and the 768mb version at 115 AR yes.
But generally the 1gb version is around $160 and the 768 around $110.
I see no reason why people should stay away from it in the normal scenario...
http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/315?vs=313
6-7 % more performance, generally for 40% more cost..
But in this case, the $10 difference for 6-7% more performance is justified, but comparing a 460 768 to a 5770...
http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/315?vs=296

Hardly flattering.. generally 20-25% difference, sometimes more.. for only $10 less~

Lots of people give examples from that site but i would not thrust their results that much. Not once the numbers ware different from other sites even toms(and mine, owning a 5770). Example mass effect 2, i play it at 1080p with all maxed out at above 50fps usually 55-60 even in most demanding places. My video card has a slight overclock and i have a E6750 at 3.4Ghz not some fancy quad i7, and 2gb of ram.

And yes, if you can afford buy better. Not all games work at 1080p with the settings i like with my 5770. Some i play even at 720p to be satisfied with the detail. I like great graphics.

I would go with the 460, the price is good and the performance is better then a 550 or a 5770. Ionut and I have a Vapor-x model which overclocks fairly well (early models, newer models do decent amounts of overclocking as well).
So you may not want to bother overclocking your cards, where the 460 will be a great choice even at stock.

Honestly, just buy the $125 sparkle 1GB version of the GTX 460.
It is honestly 10000000x better than the 550Ti and HD 5770..
If you don't believe me LOOK at the benchmarks. http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/313?vs=296
the 768mb version is much the same, check it by changing the graphics cards to compare whatever you want..
If the Sparkle's rebate ends, buy the 768mb card..:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

It gives you around 20-25% more FPS than the 5770, and at least 15-20% more than the 550Ti.

Plus its $115..the 5770 only $5/10 cheaper and 20-25% worse, the 550Ti $10 more and worse by 15-20%
