Hi there,

I'm planning on getting a new Intel i5 3570k, but I'm not sure if the integrated graphics (Intel HD 4000) are stronger than my Radeon 6570. I realize this sounds stupid, but I really need to make sure and I've heard lots of conflicting stories and tests. And it's pretty pricy, so I can't mess up.

Thanks a ton!

The HD 6570 is better, but if you want to play the latest games with good graphic settings, I would suggest something more powerful than either. What is your budget if you choose to buy a new GPU?

Hmm. Well, I'll just be using this temporarily, but maybe you can suggest something in the $200 range? Do you need any motherboard statistics?

Yes please, posting your mobo, PSU brand and model would help.

For $220, this is the best GPU for the money and would destroy any GPU in this price range, but it does use a bit of power and you would need a 600+W PSU with 1 6 pin PCI-E and 8 pin PCI-E power connector.

If you are getting a Micro ATX case, both of the GPU's you and I posted will have a hard time fitting inside it.

Nope, the description of the case states that even GTX 580's would fit fine, so the GTX 480 would fit fine. ;)

Right! Thanks for the suggestion. I've bookmarked that graphics card, and I'll get it once I get the money. For now I'll stick with my Radeon (Not for too long though!).

Thanks a ton!
