Hey yall, just wanted to ask for suggestions/advice. Im new to these forums but not the IT world. I love building my own PC's.

Im basically building a new rig, hoping to spend about 250$ on the video card and about 350$ on the motherboard/cpu. However I just got a 32" lcd 1080p tv. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
So I am wondering what the best video card to get for under 200$ to accomodate a screen this big. I am gonna be playing games on it, like Bad Company 2 and civ 5, no crysis or anything. Anywas and if any suggestiong on a processor/motherboard combo that would be very helpfull. Will I need the new six-cores?
I will be running a SSD HD too.

Thank you all in advanced for your input.

I'd rather get a XFX HD 6950 1GB for $210 after rebate over an OC'ed HD 6870 for $235. The HD 6950 should a little faster and can be OC'ed to increase performance.

For under $200 a HD 6870 should be fine like the following Gigabyte HD 6850 for $190 after a rebate and the cooling system should allow for a decent OC.

Since the price difference between the above two cards is only $20, I would get the XFX HD 6950 1GB.

ofcourse get some decent HDMI cable for better quality...


As long as the components used for the DVI and HDMI ports are of equal quality, there will be no difference in video output quality.
