lots of people told me I should buy a graphic card with the computer I want to order which is:
P8Z68-V, i5 2500k, 8gb DDR3 G-skill, Antec 620W gamer PSU, 1TB Western Digital, ASUS DVD-Writer and all in a Antec 300 case.
Just to tell you... I dont't know anything about graphic cards and I'm pretty confused. (The last graphic card I bought was an ATI 3D Rage II 4MB and it was around 1997 hahahaha).
I want to be able to watch HD movies and play some games once in a while. The game I play is basically my old NHL 2009 but I would be interested of playing the new Duke Nukem and some game like Call of duty. I don't care about not getting the max quality.
I don't want to pay lots of money too. Something under 75$ would be alright.
I read that the 5670 were good cards for casual gamer but there is like 12 versions from different manufacturers so I have no clue. All the 5670 cards are giving the same performance?
There are two versions; one with 512MB and another with 1GB of VRAM. The HD 5670 is really too slow to make use of more than 512MB of VRAM so there is virtually no difference in performance. Basically at the very best the 1GB version would give at most 2 extra frames per second at high resolutions.
Pick the cheapest one with the best warranty. If they all are only one year warranty then pick the cheapest.
I would choose the following Sapphire HD 5670 1GB since it is the cheapest (after a rebate) with free shipping; total ending price of $55. Sapphire's parent company is Athlon Micro. They are an OEM (original equipment manufacturer) who manufactures video cards for other brand name and slaps the appropriate sticker on those cards.
