What graphic card to choose?

Hi guys, i am stuck in a really difficult situation. I have to choose the best graphic card possible for my budget. I plan to use ebay or buy locally, whichever is cheapest.
My config is:
Intel celeron G 550 @ 2.6 ghz
Kingston 4 GB DDR 3 1066 mhz
Power supply 500 watts( some bizarre unknown name)
2 cooling fan 80 mm( extracted from 2 broken power supplies :| )
Hitachi 160 GB sata hard disk

Monitor is a 17" widescreen @ 1440x900 75 hertz
I DON'T PLAN TO USE AA AND AF BUT FXAA IN SOME CASES BUT THAT IS NOT NEEDED FOR ME AS I DON'T PAY ATTENTION TO LITTLE DETAILS WHILE I PLAY.

Max resolution i would play would be 1440x900 but if needed i may drop to 1280x800 or 1280x720 or even lower. :whistle:

I am not used to play all max and not want to do so either, so i will be high to medium settings and even low if on direct x 11.


My budget is $ 100 if i buy locally and up to $70 on ebay $30 shipping cost :(

What is available in my country:

Palit GT610 1GB sDDR3 64bit /HDMI $66.6
Palit GT620 1GB sDDR3 128b /HDMI $90
Palit GT630 2GB sDDR3 128bit /HDMI $ 100
Sapphire HD6570 1GB DDR3 128bit $103


Palit GT640 1GB sDDR3 128b /HDMI $ 126( got to save more then :pfff:

And i think that's all i can remember you guys ask when replying :D

More about what graphic card choose
  1. save up a bit and get the 640. its very much worth it
  2. Save up and buy the GTX 640 at least. What country?
  3. I live in Mauritius and the gt 640 is the DDR 3 version.
    What difference in performance would the gddr5 version bring


    Thanks for replies :D
  4. Check out the Graphics Card Hierarchy...
    http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/gaming-graphics-card-review,3107-7.html

    It shows that GT640 would be the best followed by the HD6570 and the other 3 following in decending order 630 620 610
  5. Yep, anything lower than 640 wont be worth it. I would recommend getting a gtx650ti if you could. It will be a bit more future proof for u.

    If you are willing to play demanding games, see if you can get 2nd Hand Card online. you can get a GTX560ti for that price. But test and benchmark it before u buy it.
  6. Why go for any of those? The 7770 stomps on them all. Heck, the 6570 you listed is OLD GEN! It's 2013, the new gen has been out for a year already, why on earth would you go for the old gen now?
