Hello, I need a graphics card for my living room's computer, but I don't want to spend a fortune on something I won't use everyday. I decided on a 4670.
AMD Athlon X2 250
8GB of RAM (DDR3 1333Mhz)
CoolerMaster 350w PSU
17" Monitor @ 1280 x 1024
Can I run it?
I've been running Skyrim on my 4670, at medium/high settings 1680x1050 quite happily. Slight loss of fps in a few locations where there are lots of candles for some reason. I'm thinking of moving the 4670 out to my 2nd PC, kinda like a hand-me-down. Looking at the nVidia GTX 550 as a budget replacement.
My PC with the 4670 (at the moment) is:
Athlon quad core 940,
twin dell 24" both at 1920x1080.
My 2nd PC is...
Athlon X2 dual core 2.6Mhz,
4GB ram, with a (wait for it...) nVidia GT7300 !!! driving my 42" HD TV at 1920x1080.
BUT that runs Skyrim too, although on totally minimum settings at 1280x800 and pretty badly. Hence the hand-me-down.
So yeah I've no problem running Skyrim on my 4670, although its not Ultra settings.
