500 dollar Limit (TigerDirect) - Page 2

post #11 of 14
Well ATI has the best bang for buck cards right now, but if you don't want them that's up to you.

The 460 you list will be more than enough for the resolution you're at. You can even drop to a gt 240 or 250 and probably still be ok and save some money.

Those cases probably don't have side panels, they look pretty old. You could mod them yourself, but the cost of a dremel plus fan may be enough to purchase a decent budget case at like $40

What about a 550Ti. Only hi intense game I have is UDK and GTA 4. I'm also going to try to mess with the CryEngine 3 SDK when it comes out. I can "play" gta4 on lowest settings at like 12-15 fps. I MIGHT be able to get a 955 from a friend. only thing is, is that one pin is broken. Says I have to go to a jeweler and fix it. I was thinking about this card. http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...964&CatId=3669

I've seen videos it this card running Crysis 2.


One of GTA4.

The 450 should be good, I wouldn't bother with 550ti, the 460 1GB would be better than it.

I made an Intel Build


$649.05

What about an i3? I hear games and programs such as 3DS Max, Photoshop, etc and still run pretty good with a Dual Core.
