Best budget gpu for 1080p video playback?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hey,

I'm currently in the market for a cheap but reliable 1080p video playback gpu.

It must only have 1 pcie connector due to power supply although I can use a molex converter if needed.
It must be as cheap as possible in terms of cost
It must be able to smoothly push 1080p video
It must be able to push 3840 by 1080 for dual screens (although only one monitor will be running the 1080p video at once.
It must be reliable
It must be compatible with photoshop and illustrator
It must be good.

Use http://www.pccasegear.com please

thanks

if you dont have a processor or motherboard yet, you could go with an FM2 A4 like the 5300

A 7750 like the one below will do everything you mentioned and is one of this generation's cheapest cards. It draws its power from the mobo, and does not require a connection from the PSU. While I would always recommend a 7850 over this, it is far cheaper, and will suit your needs:

Thank you!

so the 7750 should be fine running;

photoshop and Illustrator as well as 1080p video maybe together? Not sure if the client will though :S

Just to make sure would the 7770 handle that ^ ?

You could go with a Radeon 7450, 6450 or 5450, they'll do all that and should be as cheap as a decent steak, around $30 or so. thumb.gif

You can go even lower and be fine, the 6650 or a 6570 and still easily handle what you are talking about. Not going to get much gaming performance but for work and video playback they are plenty. I have a friend running a 6450 Flex on three 1080 monitors, one is a 52" LED TV that he always has the stock news up on, day trader.
