Hi!, i am currently using Msi Ati radeon 5770 i got 3 years ago.
The card is old and i would like to get a new one.
I Currently have a corsair 500 watt power supply, and i have a Athlon x4 635 processor.
i would like to know which graphic card i can get for $150, i may spend $10 more if its really worth it
Help appreciated!, thanks
What resolution are you playing at? What type of games do you play?
Within your price range, for the current generation of video cards, You have the Radeon 7770 or GTX 650 Ti. Both come in under $150 with the GTX 650 Ti being the better of the two. If you can bump up to $165 you can grab a Radeon 7850 1gb or for $170 you can get a Radeon 7850 2gb.
If you can hold out for a couple months the new Radeons will be out. That's my recommendation, wait if you can.
The first graph is your resolution. Note that these are the 2 GB vRAM versions, so expect a little less FPS. Well actually Combat Arms does not look like a very demanding game at all so 1 gb vs 2 gb vRAM will most likely not make a difference for you.
It is better. Keep in mind that the 7850 is just about $10 more than the 650 ti and 7850>650ti>7770. The difference between the 7850 and the 650 ti is about the same as the 650 ti vs the 7770. If money is tight though, go for the 650 ti, it definitely fills your needs.
If you want a 7850 I still recommend the Sapphire. It's actually cheaper than the one you picked, because it has a $15 mail in rebate and free shipping. Here are some benchmarks on BF3 again since I've shown you benchmarks on that the whole time. http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/geforce-gtx-650-ti-...
Note that this is on 1920x1080 so you should expect more FPS. As you can see the 7850 is quite a bit better.
