Card Options

Hi all- looking to replace my 9800GTX + that finally gave up the ghost.
Looking at either the Asus ASUS PCI-E A Radeon HD 7770 DirectCU V2 or Asus GeForce GTX 550 Ti 910MHz 1GB PCI-Express HDMI.

Specs are
Gigabyte G41M Combo mainboard
4 gig DDR3 Mem
Q6850 3.0 stock speed Processor
OS W7
600 Watt Power supply

The mo bo will probably restrict getting a high end card, so I see little benefit in selling the farm to buy a card.
Any feedback much appreciated

  1. What's your budget?

    I'd recommend HD 6870.
  2. Hi Sunius-Budget would be somewhere between 100 to 180 Euros,
  3. Then I stick with my recommendation. HD 6870 will fit in that budget, and it is way more powerful than either GTX 550 Ti or HD 7770.

  4. Thanks Sunius, much obliged
  5. I'd go with the one from pixmania (the cheapest one). They all have identical specs, just different coolers. Personally, I think that better cooler isn't worth additional 30-40 euros, especially when stock cooler is more than enough to keep the card cool.
  6. Thanks Sunius- ordered it today -)
  7. Hope it works out for you! Tell us how it goes.
  8. Fine card- well impressed with it , thanks fellas!
