Low Budget, Media Use Graphics Card - Page 2

post #11 of 14
um... guys... the G2120 doesn't have HD4000 graphics... It has standard Ivy Bridge HD Graphics, which I believe is between Sandy Bridge's HD2000 and HD2500 performance-wise.

The closest thing with HD4000 is the i3-3225

Thanks for saying it. Surprised it took so long.

The GT 210 is really old technology. A better recent card:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814125431 HD 6450

It's a little faster than a GT 520 and only a little more expensive than a GT 210. Best price/Performance for you.

AMD 6450 is actually double the price of the GT210 here in the UK frown.gif

I know the GT210 is quite old but having put that in the original quote i cant change the price so anything i spend over the top of what i quoted comes out of my already very low profit on the build. Im only making £30 for building it, installing everything and going to the store to get the parts, if i spend an extra £15 on a GPU i will only make £15!! rolleyes.gif

The GT210 is £14.99, the 6450 is £29.99, they sell the 5450 for £22.99??

None of them can even attempt to play games and for a budget of £260 for the whole build i dont have much choice in upgrading the graphics card. My thoughts were atleast the GT210 will have its own dedicated memory and output for a single 1920 x 1080p 22inch monitor via DVI cable? Im happy to spend a little extra say £5 but otherwise its not much good. Sorry should have probably given this info in OP wink.gif
