[SOLVED] which graphics card to get? - Page 2

Thread Starter 
how is this card?

http://www.ebay.com/itm/GIGABYTE-ATI-Radeon-HD6850-1GB-DDR5-2DVI-HDMI-Video-Graphic-Card-GV-R685OC-1GD-/320845444299?pt=PCC_Video_TV_Cards&hash=item4ab3e0f4cb#ht_1988wt_932
does it look cheap? and do you think it will do the job?

I'd say look around on the market place for a bit and if theres nothing there Newegg is your best friend for prices.
So here's a couple recommendations

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130752
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814133343

I owned they PNY GTS 450 and it was simply amazing for my first real graphics card. It played Crysis 2 maxed out at a nice fps (1366x768 though) It stayed cool and OC'ed a good amount too. smile.gif

I dont have a first hand experience with the 6850 but I know the 450 will get stuff done. Anyone who has a 6850 care to shed some light on the subject?
