Need suggestion in buying graphics card. I made my decision to buy new GTX 550 Ti. Then I got an offer of buying about two years old 4850 (512 MB) at a cheaper price. I would like your suggestions over this ?
Both cards are from Palit
Cost of new 550 Ti is INR 7500
Cost of 2nd hand Radeon HD 4850 INR 4500
4850 has 9 months warranty left with it.
the 460 is good but might not be worth it for you if it costs so much more than the 550ti. at least here the 460 is only a few bucks more than the 550 but with a 30% price increase, it might not be worth it if you are sticking to 1366x768.
The difference in the prices he provided is 26% more for the GTX 460. The GTX 460 is over 30% faster than the GTX 550 Ti and that difference only grows if you are willing to overclock. It is certainly worth the extra money if he is going to move to a higher resolution but yeah, at 1366x768 either card would be very good so it wouldn't really matter.
