Which graphics card would be the best bang for buck?

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)

    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.
  2. From the list you post, 5450 for $35 is better. But 6670 for $60 is good is option to go as xXStavrosXx recommend.
  3. 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.

  4. 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.
