I'm considering upgrading the graphics card in my system to get a bit more out of my games.
I'm primarily concerned with getting higher fps on Diablo 3 atm and currently have my graphic settings set to low on everything (AA off, V-Sync ON) and at 1280x720 and I'm seeing about 20-30 fps on average.
It's pretty choppy sometimes and I'd like to run it smoothly with the graphics settings higher and get some decent fps.
My system specs are:
Windows 7 64bit
Chipset: GeForce 6150SE nForce 430
Motherboard Name: MCP61PM-HM
Athlon 64 X2 (W) 6000+ 3.0 GHz (89W)
Power Supply: Dynex DX-400WPS
500 GB SATA 3G (3.0 Gb/sec) 7200 rpm
ATI Radeon HD 4550 512mb
3 GB DDR2 SDRAM
LG 2453V 1080p monitor
I don't want to invest to much into this machine and would prefer to spend $100 or less.
hd 7750 will be good to run that game even on 1080p with aa off with 20-30 fps.
Ah, forgot the 7750. That might be your best bet, since it requires no 6 or 8-pin auxiliary power from your power supply, which is nice. Performance for the 7750 is still less than the 6790 though, but so are the temps and power draw.
