I'm looking for a relatively low priced GPU that can play the latest games at atleast medium quality (but preferably high). I'm just upgrading my existing system and not buying an entirely new one.
Intel Core 2 Duo E7300 @2.6 GHz
GIGABYTE G41MT-S2PT Motherboard
Intel G41 Chipset (Onboard unfortunately)
Realtek HD Audio
4GB DDR3 RAM [Kingston]
Windows 7 x64
Low priced, ranges less than $150
Does NOT require an auxiliary power supply
Can play the latest games at (preferably) high settings
Will last for another 3 years or so
If you mean a CPU brand, probably Intel. What are you looking at spending? For a Radeon brand, I'd steer clear of Sapphire. I've just had one die on me 4 months after the warranty expired. Another died 6 months after and my first Sapphire Radeon (a 9700) died on the same month the warranty expired! I've learnt my lesson now though, cheap for a reason. Same goes for Powercolor. VTX3D are the same guys (Tul Corporation). I've seen a lot of problems reported with HIS cards, but I've never owned one. Asus, MSI and Gigabyte are all solid choices.
