Hi everyone,

I'd like to know which are the CHEAPEST Graphic Cards good enough to run Cities In Motion.

I'd like to play this game, but I don't want to spend a lot of money with Graphic Card, and systemrequirementslab.com just says: You need GeForce 8800GT or better to run it.

Then, as I don't know much about GC, can anyone just post a list with Graphic Cards better than 8800? It can be ATi as well.

Many thanks!

There's a hierarchy list where you can see where your 8800GT stands in relation to all other graphics cards regarding performance:

If you don't play a lot of demanding games, something like a 7750 or 7770 would do you fine. Or if you prefer to go Nvidia, a GTX 650 is roughly similar there, although I personally recommend the ATI alternative since they seem slightly more future proof (not that it matters much with such low-end cards).

Thank you very much for your answer! :) 

You helped me a lot with this information. Now I have a start point to choose my graphic card.

Another question is: Can I trust information on this site: http://www.game-debate.com/games/index.php?g_id=1198&ca... ?

It says with a NVidia GT 430 I can run Cities In Motion and other very demanding games in medium resolution and COD Black OPS can be plyed at full resolution.

Thank you for your help! ;)

I would not bother with the GT 430 at all. It's more or less garbage for game.

Get the following Radeon HD 6670 for $50 after rebate. It's no fire breather, but it's much better than the GT 430. An I don't trust that site either.

Actually, I found a much better card. Get the following Radeon HD 7750 for $60 after rebate. It is much more powerful than the Radeon HD 6670. I would say it about equal to the Radeon HD 6770 which is around 35% - 40% more powerful than the HD 6670.

It also has free shipping so the actual price difference versus the other card I recommended is $3. $3 for that much of a performance increase is mere peanuts...

Thank you man!

I live in Brazil, and EVERYTHING related to Graphic Cards here are quite expensive. Those GC cited by you, are twice the price I want to pay for a video card here. I'd like to know, if a GT520 DDR3 1GB can at least run Cities In Motion and other games like Counter-Strike:GO with medium graphics. I'm not a gamer and a Graphic card with can run SimCity, CS or other simple games are alright for me. :) 

Sorry for asking a lot of things, but when you live in a country like Brazil, where taxes are more than 50% of the product, you understand why is difficult to get a Video Card only to play a few games.

Thanks!
