Suggestions on Gaming Graphics cards.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
alright, I'm leaning a little toward the 5670 because it may not have 1GB memory, but it does have GDDR5 and crossfire. So its gona be a tough sell but I think I can get to the $70 mark.

Thanks for the suggestions.

$60 gaming card, yes, pick up the GTX260 or HD 4870 on that price. They just don't support DX11. They are a lot better than the GT 430 for DX10 and 9 games.

GT430 will probably be ok for lower resolutions only.

The one I was considering was a GT 430 but I'm a little un-sure about it and would like to know if theres anything better or cheaper.

Thanks for any help.
If that is your budget you can get much faster cards than the gt430. The gtx9800 or gts 250 can be had for $70 or less nowadays on craigslist.

You can get a EVGA GeForce GTX 460 SE from their b-stock for $89 if you can stretch your funds to that amount. Just figured I'd throw that out there.
