Just want to play Minecraft: HD 6570 or GT 240?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Old machine's getting a face lift, need to get off the integrated graphics.

The two main contenders are:

EVGA Superclocked GT 240 (512mb 128bit GDDR5 version) - $45

Asus HD 6570 (standard, 1GB 128bit DDR3) - $52 after rebate


the less preferred option is a Galaxy GT 430 (1GB 128bit DDR3) - $30 after rebate (but Galaxy rebates are questionable so perhaps $60)

The GT 240 is a very nice, reliable card. I had it in my old machine and used it for Minecraft and some CS:S/TF2. Great card for those low range games. Never had anything wrong with it. It might be a very cheap graphics card, but if you're moving from integrated there'll be a huge difference.

6570 for Vram:)

The 6570 is a newer card; although the performance gain over a GT 240 might be marginal, i'd say it's worth the extra $7.
