Ok.I've got an Unsold Gigabyte 512MB 8400 GS,And Currently using Gigabyte G210 1GB.
I Know everyone would say,Nvidia G210 is a non end gaming low profile GPU.
Yes,i bet ya guys say like that. Ok,what im asking is,
i wanted to upgrade my GPU. Which is Better?
The Gigabyte Geforce GT Series OR Radeon Series?
What About The Sapphire Radeon Series?
I Ran My Best Graphics game on my pc 'which is F1 2010'. And the lagness is so...Undescripable.

Is that your PSU? Well, it doesn't came with 6 pin power connector, only 480W and not so famous brand, so I guess you're stuck with low card choices, like GT240 or HD5670.

And that is your board? It only support dual core cpu, so I guess the pcie slot is still 1.x series, which you can't use high end card like HD6xxx or GTX5xx series.

Well, the best card you can get is either HD5670 or GT240. That's a low end card, but still much better than 8400GS or GT210.

I have the GT240 and it can max out any game at low resolutions (like 1024x768).

What About F1 2010?
Using My G210 1GB Playing F1 2010 On Screen resolution Like 1152x658 its jus so good~
But,Sadly,it lags,Even Do The Enviroment Quality i set to low.Then,i've changed it.
1024x768. And Guess What? The F1 is Floating on the ground! ><

Besides Than HD5670 And GT240. Any other GPU to recommend me?
GT240 Is Good and Nice. Saw many gameplay Maxed Out with this GPU,Any Other GT Series? What About the Gigabyte Nvidia 9600GT. Any good?

What about GT220? I Don't Need Higher Resolution During gameplay.
I just hope that any GPU that could do 1024x768 or more with High or Medium Graphics Settings.
Maybe Im thinking about buying GT 220 Or GT 240 On Gigabyte. Because i saw the GT 240 Needed at least 450W to run.
Should i worry about this? I think my MAJOR upgrades eat a lot of the watt...

I've done some research and even calculating budget. ><
Ok. So far,What i think about buying it could be possibly the GT220 Or GT240.
Gigabyte GT240 requires at least 450W. My PSU only 480W.So,kinda scare?><
Gigabyte GT220 Is getting alot of attraction to me. What You Guys think about it? And,The ATI radeon....IM thinking about Gigabyte/Sapphire's HD5770 GDDR3 1GB OR The Sapphire's HD5670 GDDR5 512mb?What about Any good? I will tell more or ask more for more.>.<

No, GT240 is an okay with even 300W PSu, don't worry about that. Go with GT240 and NOT with GT220 (this is not a gaming card). You're going to see MAJOR improvement going from GT210 to GT240. I'm pretty sure you can play most of games with decent setting at 1152x658. :) 

GT240 doesn't required a 6pin power connector from PSU, meanwhile HD5770 does, and I don't think you PSU can handle HD5770, you'll be safe with GT240.

Ok. HD5570 Out of my List. What about HD5670? And, the HD4000 Series,are they any good?

Any question,just ask.


I think you should get a radeon; they are lower in price so you can have more money to upgrade your cpu which is actually required or it will slow down your graphics card if you get one fast enough. Upgrading your cpu only right now is pointless though as it probably doesn't slow down that gf210 of yours. I have a amd phenom ii x6 1055t 2.8ghz at stock clock with a radeon gigabyte 6850 and 4gb 1333mhz ram, and I play at 1920x1080 resolution and currently I can play crysis 1 and 2 on highest settings at 30fps+ or medium 40fps+ and low is 45fps+ and it doesnt look that much worse. Crysis 2 has nearly no difference in appearance when I turn down the settings but crysis 1 does. I think you should go for a 6790 or 6770 for around $120-$140 but if you have a bit more money you can get a 6850 for $160-180. If your mobo does not support crossfire but supports sli, you should go for an nvidia 550ti or 560ti depending on your budget. If it supports both or none of them, then just go for a radeon. Now for your cpu upgrade, you will have to upgrade the cpu if you want to get the most or even a decent amount out of your gpu. If I were you id get an intel i5-2400 which is $200 at the least so you can keep it for long but if you can, get an intel i7-2600 for around $340, that will last very very long.

Change my CPU? If i change my CPU, i will have to change my Mobo.Then,i will have to change my Fan if i don't get a perfect Mobo for all the upgrade's i did the pass few months. i Don't wna Do that. So,i'll just stick by changing my GPU.
Ur advice makes my think back the upgrades i plan recently.But,don't have that much budget to stick with. BTW,thanks For ur time here,But....If i'll get a supreme on JACKPOT,u know what, i'll go for your advice. But. i still think that AMD is much better Intel. Even do i know the lifespan of AMD processor is less than Intel,But for me,AMD Processor's is built for gaming. Hehe~

O yeah,forgot...Recently i've been surfing on the internet,and you said i should get radeon?
I was looking for any GOOD 1GB Radeon HD4000 Series,Is that any good? And,i just like to get any Radeon with HD4000 or HD5000 Series with 1GB. Also,which is for gaming. Any you can recommend me some,with my specs like that,which series i should get,HD4000 Series kinda convincing for me. ><

What About Gigabyte's Nvidia 9500GT 1GB DDR2? Is it ok?
Can it handle latest games on medium or high settings on 1152x768 screen resolution?
