Hi everyone,

I'm just new here and I would like to get some advice from you. I already surveyed all the shops here in my area. I'm living in the

Philippines and stocks are limited, so I'm going to list my PC specs and the available GPU in their shops w/ the cheapest price. I

only have the model of the GPU, since it doesn't really matters who's the "2ndary" manufacturer.

I'm going to use this mainly for gaming and play games such as Crysis 2, Assassin's Creed Brotherhood, Starcraft 2. Preferably,

play them in their max settings on a 1440 x 900 pixels (though resolution and settings doesn't count that much). Also to be

used to view movies (not really as a home theater), and doing some video/photo editing. I already made some research and my

choice would be HD 6850, but I'm not confident on my choice. My budget is only 8000Php (Philippines peso) roughly around

$200, and can be stretch and cannot exceed more than 10,000Php ($250). I'm just going to add here the GPU that's not w/in my

budget for comparison purposes.


PC specs:
DirectX Version: DirectX 9.0c (4.09.0000.0904)
OS: Microsoft XP SP3
PSU: 600W - Zeno Power
Monitor: ViewSonic 21" 1440 x 900 native resolution
Motherboard: P5GC-MX/1333
Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU E7200 @ 2.53GHz (2 CPUs)
Memory: 3448MB RAM Apacer UNB pc2-5300 CL5 2x2GB
HD: Samsung HD250HJ
DVD/CD RAM-writer: Sony optiarc dvd rw ad-7200s
GPU: Onboard

GPUs on competition: (I'm going to use Philippine Peso price here. For rough estimated converted price to $ [Php/40 = $])
9400GT -2,900
9500GT -2,250
GT210 -2,100
GT220 -2,650
GT240 -3,000
GT430 -3,300
GT520 -2,500
GTS250 -4,990
GTS450 -5,400
GTX460 -18,000 (2GB)
GTX550 -6,500
GTX560 -14,000 (N560GTX)
GTX570 -19,000
HD3650 -2,435
HD4350 -2,950
HD4650 -2,500
HD4670 -3,500
HD5450 -2,275
HD5570 -3,200
HD5670 -4,650
HD5770 -7,500
HD6770 -6,350
HD6850 -8,990



So w/c do you think is the best GPU should I buy w/ my PC spec. Note, I'm not planning to change any PC spec.

Thanks for the feedback

Well having any modern graphics card with your specs would bring a nasty bottleneck for the GPU. 5770 would be my pick for your system.

GTX460 if you can get one?
post #4 of 50
HD 5770 or HD 6770 (they're both the same so get the cheaper one). if you can overclock your E7200 to at least 3.3GHz, get the HD 6850.

or just get the hd 5770/6770 and spend for a cpu cooler for the extra money you have left.

also upgrade your PSU first since you posted you have a generic one.

The HD5770 is going to be your best bet.
1) Old dual core at low clock speeds. You're going to hit a CPU bottleneck eventually. Anything more than a HD5770 would be too much GPU, not enough CPU to push it.
2) Generic 600w PSU. HD5770's use very VERY little power. It'll work fine on your current PSU.
3) 1440x900 resolution. You should be able to near max most games at such a low resolution with a HD5770 and your CPU. No reason to blow extra money on something that's not going to help you anyway (due to bottleneck and low resolution).
4) Windows XP. A single HD5770 will max out anything in DX9 mode anyway, even at 1080p.

He's either got the wrong CPU listed or the wrong motherboard listed, you're right.

His motherboard is a Socket 478. His CPU is LGA775 (being a Core2Duo).

At OP:
If the above link is in fact your motherboard, none of the GPU's you've listed will work, as you lack a PCIe slot. AGP only. And at that point, might as well just keep the 8500GT you have, as it won't get much better than that.

if he has a Socket 478 motherboard. then buy a new motherboard for P2,500 and a video card that will cost P4,000-P5,000 for his P8,000 budget.
