I’ve been looking for sometime to buy a new video card for my PC for around $250 AUD (that’s my budget roughly.) I’ve been trying to decide whether to go Nividia or ATI, both have served me well so far. My old P4 has a Geforce 4 MX440 that’s been running strong for 5+ years now and still hasn’t slipped up. My iwn computer I bought last year has a ATI hd2400PRO (low end) card which I’m planning on upgrading. Now as for the purpose, yes… it’s for gaming, but not extreme gaming! just a mid to high end card will suffice for me.
I’ve been looking at the GTX 460 1GB and the Radeon 5770 1GB. One of the games I’ve been meaning to play is GTA IV (which I know is very CPU dependent… therefore I was planning on getting the Radeon 5770 and perhaps a new CPU, like quad core… but that’s unlikely! Because I’ll need a new PSU as well.) Btw, I plan on getting a Corsair TX-750 PSU.
So yeah, sorry for my rambling I love talking computer hardware as you can see If anyone can suggest any good cards or combinations, I will be very grateful!
Thanks in advance!
