Well before you buy a GPU, tell us the games and at what resolution you'll be gaming at. Than we can recommend a more effective card than the 630. You dont want that...

I'll be playing Saints Row 3, Mirrors Edge and SimCity (Preferably at high settings) on a 1920 x 1080 Monitor through HDMI.

Brand new a GT 630 is £50 ($80), and on Ebay you can get a second-hand GT 640 and GTX 650 at the same price!

Should I buy this? It has 8 hours left..

Avoid the 640 as well

 

If you will buy 6xx series than get atleast a 650 ti.

 

or a 560 ti from the last generation.

Note that I said older cards, not necessarily high end but mid range or so.

EDIT:

Something like these:

I'd go for this one personally

Trying bidding on this one, you might win and snag it at a steal

By the way what's your absolute maximum budget?

That's really helpful!

I'm looking around £50, but I don't want to spend any more than £70 or £80..

Thanks for the suggestions!

What's the best Nvidia card you can find for £50?

I can't find anything decent.

EDIT: Well this: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Palit-GTX-275-896MB-GDDR3-CRT-DVI-HDMI-/281089636423?pt=UK_Computing_Computer_Components_Graphics_Video_TV_Cards_TW&hash=item41723f7847

I highly doubt your PSU can handle it though.

Just cycled to the bank and check my account, I only have £31.96... Looks like I won't be buying a Graphics Card this week!

The GT 630 is still on the top of my list though..

Like everyone already said... get something a bit better. I'm sure you can save up for a little while to get something that's a bit nicer. You'll just be frustrated with the games having them run like a slideshow when you are trying to play them.

Before you asked about how you'd switch between the two displays... it's very simple. It's done within the control panel of the card. Once two displays are detected, within the options of the control panel for the card, you'll have options as to what gets displayed on what screen...


StayFrosty - what are temps in Manila right now?! How's the weather in October? I'm gonna be there for like the last week of October and first week of November. tongue.gif
