Should I get this GPU?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
What do you guys think about this GPU from my local Microcenter?

http://www.microcenter.com/single_product_results.phtml?product_id=0371739#tabs

It's a Zotac 430 for $26.99 after MIR (Newegg has it at $59.99 after MIR). A 6570 at Microcenter would run at least $59.99 after MIR. And I heard the 430 can hold up against the 6570 but I also don't want to 3D. Should I buy the 430 or wait out on a good 6570? Only thing worries me is the future proof of the 430. I'm not sure what new features the 6570 has to offer over the 430 if someone can please shed some light. Thanks

Its good for a HTPC Build actually. If you need moar power you could get a GTS450. I would get a 4670 or a 5670 or something tho, since its a HTPC for watching movies and stuff so you should get whatever is cheaper thumb.gif

Most HTPC's are fine with a 5450 or 6450 card.
