Hi, I've been planning to replace my Inno3D GT240 since I am already having some BSOD it says something about BBCCode116 :\. My PSU is an FSP Epsilon 600W and I play games like NFS Series, COD Series, Red Alert 2, Assassin's Creed Series (gonna play Revelations if possible :S) and Prototype. My budget is only up to $110. XD

after browsing a pricelist from a local store here, I came up with the following choices:

MSI R5670 OC 1GB DDR5
Powercolor HD4730 512MB DDR5
Powercolor HD5670 1GB DDR5
Powercolor HD6670 1GB DDR5
Gigabyte HD6670 1GB DDR5
Inno3D GT440 512MB DDR5
Inno3D GTS450 512MB DDR5

So there, I tried to browse all the GPUs within my budget. I'm really planning to buy tomorrow and uhm, if possible I'll be using that for 2yrs. :S

here is my full system specs:

CPU: Intel Dual Core E6300 2.8ghz
GPU: Inno3D GT240 512MB DDR5
HDD1: Seagate Barracuda 80GB
HDD2: Seagate Barracuda 250GB
mobo: ASUS P5G41T-MLX3
RAM: Kingston 4GB RAM DDR3
PSU: FSP Epsilon 600W

thank you so much! :)

Out of those the GTS450 is the most powerful and the one I would get, the rest is not big enough upgrade to make an impact.

Of the cards you presented the GTS 450 is the best option. This 6770 is faster thought, but with shipping just goes past your budget. Then again it has a mail in rebate even if I think those are a pain I'd try and get it.

PowerColor AX6770 $109.99 (89.99 after mail in rebate)

Yes I've seen GeForce GTX 550 Ti (Fermi) 1GB 192-bit GDDR5 on the list too but the brand is different, it's from EVGA. I'm actually in doubt with that brand since some would say that it has a poor customer service, while others tell me that some of their products are really faulty... :/  still, that card packs a lot of punch...

Uhm and about the 6770, is it true that it's just a rebranded version of the 5770? :S

EVGA is known for one of the best customer service in the business. HD6770 is an improved version of the HD5770 very similar in performance!

Then it's a good thing that I've consulted you guys before completely agreeing with them. Thanks. :) 

uhm then its ok for me to buy the 6770 instead (if this one's better than GTS450)?:S

----edited----

is it worth it to buy a 1GB GPU instead of just a 512MB? Like a GTS450 1GB DDR5.

I only have a 17" monitor with a resolution of 1366x768. Although I am planning to replace it with a 22" using the same resolution or up to just 1440x900.

Yes the HD6770 is more powerful and 1Gb is fine.
