ok i think that gts450(£80) < 5770(£80)=6770 < gtx460(£110) < 6870 < gtx560 ti
but do u think that gts450/5770 is enough for my needs and will be ok for the nxt 2-3yrs (at my resolution) or do u think its worth the extra £30 and go for the gtx460 for a better performance/future proofing, again for my needs.
Even for an average gamer you would want a 6850 or a 6770.The 6850 is faster but I reccomend,with budget permiting,getting the 6870 if you want it to last for the next 3 years.
At that resolution it is more CPU dependant than GPU.I'm guessing your on a budget which is why you went with the i3 2100.I would urge you to get a i5 isntead if you haven't already gotten it but you can always upgrade to it in the future since it is the same socket.
my budget is about £100, ny specs i3-2100, 4gb ddr3, i will get a good psu after i decided on the card. according to toms gaming cpus, the i3-2100 is good enough for my needs. i can always upgrade to an i5 later.
back to the card, which of the following do u recommend:
gts450(£90), gtx460(£120), 550ti(£100), 6770(£100), 6870(£130)
ok i looked at gtx460/6850/6870 and from a performance point of view the 6870 is the winner. they all start from £130 and if thats how much i will have to pay then i might as well go for the 6870.
unfortunately, i dont want to spend over a £100 for the card so all of them are out of budget. the gts450 is very tempting starting at £80ish. do u guys think its not good enough, for my needs, and not worth the price? also the 550ti for £100ish is tempting, is this one ok?
otherwise i will have to wait for the prices to drop a bit.
The 6770/5770 is much better than the GTS450 all while consuming less power.I'm surprised you can't find any 6850's for cheap.They are a lot lower in price than they used to be and i've seen some for $120 after MIR.Have you triedd looking on amazon.uk?
