Hey guys I would love to know what would be the best GFx card for me under these specs-
Intel Pentium Dual Core E5200 2.5 GHz OC'd to 3.1 GHz
250W PSU (Probably changing it later, it's stock anyway)
4GB RAM
750GB HDD
Intel G31/G33 Chipset

Anyone can recommend a good GFx under these conditions? I really need to play High-Def games such as BF3 and Crysis 2 at least on low settings with 1280x720... (cause that's the highest res I can get on my monitor)

Your best bet is HD 6670 GDDR5 version:

That's the fastest card below $90 AND it will work with your power supply. It will play both BF3 and Crysis 2 nicely. Not maximum settings, but you should expect medium-high at your resolution.

Wow, I was considering it, but I thought it worked on a very high PSU... Thanks A LOT, I didn't expect such a quick answer! Oh and BTW, what is the difference between GDDR5 and DDR3? I would have a cheaper deal for DDR3 :p

Diference between Memory DDR3 vs GDDR5 is that the last one quadruple the bandwith of the 1st one. Let's say.

DDR3 memory speed > 1000Mhz

GDDR5 memory speed> 1000Mhz > 4000Mhz efective

This is a huge improvement in gaming where more bandwidth makes the game runs smoothly and more fluent. It's mandatory for all gaming GPUs whichs needs more trasnfer rate to be able to use its full puntential. Any card with GDDR5 is more powerful than any card with DDR3. A DDR3 2GB card is slower than any card with GDDR5 512mb card, it is that important
