post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
hi guys!
im planning to buy a new GPU, coz my gt240 is horribly weak
my budget is £130 and im looking for a card which is able to run games for now and future games at max setting on 1280x1024 res with some AA.
i have a 450W psu so my choices are limited.
i found a few cards but i dont know which one to get.
hd5770
gts450
gtx550ti
gtx460 (if i get this i need 2 molex splitters)
and maybe the hd5850, hd5850 or hd6850
which one sould i get?
(srry for my bad english)

What CPU do you have? A GT240 while not the most powerful cards it should be able to run games fine at 1280x1024. Also what's your budget?

Actually just fill in your system specs here.

Get the cheapest of these;

hd5770
gts450
gtx550ti

unless you are planning to upgrade to a higher resolution then look at the 6850/6870.
