Which graphics card would be the best bang for buck?
Sep 29, 2012, 2:02 AM
Which would be best for playing Counter strike: source and Team fortress 2? (or will these even be good enough?)
-Sapphire Radeon HD 5450 1 GB DDR3 (about $35)
-EVGA GeForce 8400 GS 1 GB DDR3 (about $30)
-EVGA GeForce 210 1024 MB DDR3 (about $33)
I was just wanting to know before i actually go out and buy one. BTW if you have any better suggestions within $30.00. Thanks all.

I strongly recommend you give $60 and buy this 6670:
You will experience occasionaly low frame rates with the above cards, which is always bad when you play a MMO.

From the list you post, 5450 for $35 is better. But 6670 for $60 is good is option to go as xXStavrosXx recommend.

xXStavrosXx is right, you should get atleast a HD 6670 for those games. Well, if you don't mind doing rebates, you can get one of those cards for $50. Trust me, it will be alot better than one of those cards you have listed.

The 6670 is a really good budget card. The 5450 is really weak. Even weaker than HD 4000. The 6670 can max out Counter Strike and TF2, no problem.
