Hello All,

I'm looking at upgrading my current video card "ati radeon 4670". Wanna ask what's the best graphics card, economical since i'm on a tight budget. My board is Asus M5A88V-evo with Athlon X3 455 3.3GHz. Thanks!

I run two systems with x3 435's (unlocked to x4) on ati 5770 cards, so I reckon a 6770 or higher will do you fine

Nvidia/Ati, it doesn't matter, you are looking for a Pcie card, which is the name of the slot that it fits into, there is no difference between Nvid or Ati in that respect, they both cater for the format
,
Apart from that detail, the Radeon 7770 is the next level up from the 6770, which replaced the 5770, they aren't Nvidia cards, they are Ati/Radeon cards
and would do just fine in your rig

Yup, thats about the size of it, its pointless sli/crossfiring on a 16/4 plate, theres no benefit, for decent results you want at least x8/x8 on the motherboards Pcie lanes

9800 gt is weak in when compared to the 6770, I own both and use both at the moment. 7770 seems to be the best deal around.
