Hey all,

Have had a ati 4850 since 2008. It has served its purpose well but now it really can't handle BF3 too well.
Looking for a new gpu upgrade for around $100-$150 that will actually allow me to fully play. I am just not tech savvy enough to make a decision.

my specs:
monitor resolution: 1280x1024
e8400 dual core 3.0ghz
4gb ddr2 ram
ati 4850
150gb hdd
500w psu

Any help is so much appreciated you don't even know!

The 6870 is the best choice, this one is $145 with MIR they are basically giving it away. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... . What PSU do you have?.

Yes, you are tech savvy enough to make a decision.

Read the relevant portions of this article: http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/gaming-graphics-car...


If you want to know more about a given card in question you can google some reviews.

All you need to know is that at your given budget your 500W power supply will probably be fine. Your PS is the only possible real concern.
