Solved Totally confused by video card options... Tags: Graphics Cards HD Radeon Graphics Product Last response: August 30, 2011 5:23 AM in Graphics & Displays Share baiano August 20, 2011 7:05:36 AM *EDITED for clarification* Here is my current system: Intel Core i5-2400 3.1GHz ASUS P8Z68-M Pro 8GB DDR3 1333 RAM I am looking at a decent video card that will bump up the HD output for pushing blu-ray video to a 42" 1080p TV. Video game performance is not a real issue. I used http://www.videocardbenchmark.net/ (the same guys I went to for CPU info) to find cards that have a high value (performance/cost) and found the following cards: GeForce GT 240 - 770 @ ~$40: - PNY Verto VCGGT2401D3XPB GeForce GT 240 1GB GeForce GTX 465 - 2490 @ ~$100: - (brands I've never heard of) Radeon HD 6670 - 1353 @ ~$100: - ASUS EAH6670/DIS/1GD5 Radeon HD 6670 1GB - MSI R6670-MD1GD5 Radeon HD 6670 1GB Radeon HD 5670 - 1241 @ ~$90: - XFX HD-567X-ZNF3 Radeon HD 5670 1GB - HIS IceQ H567Q1GD Radeon HD 5670 1GB Aside from the numerical score provided by vcbenchmark, I really cant tell the difference between the various cards, especially those cards based on the same chip. What do people think of those options? Why would I go with one brand over another? By brand I mean ASUS, MSI, XFX, HIS, etc. Thanks in advance for the help More about : totally confused video card options Best solution leandrodafontoura August 20, 2011 3:35:43 PM Friend, you motherboard is far beyong capable of doing 1080p Blu-ray.
