780G and 3450?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Is there really any point to getting a 3450 to go hybrid with a 780g mobo?

Is it fair to say stick with the 780g solo for more pure htpc use, and consider a 3450 to go for htpc with gaming?

The 3450 is interesting because its 35 bucks, and low profile so will fit nicely in my little case. But is it worth it?

NO! http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814102725
thats the least i would get for gaming, its 512mb and GDDR3 and only $60 after MIR
that will DESTROY a hybrid crossfire set up with a 3450 and not cost much more or use much more power.

EDIT: if you cant actually fit anything more than a 3450, then i guess get it, or look for a cheap 3470 (GDDR3 version) but they cost WAAAy to much on newegg ($60)

Is that 3650 low profile? The 3470 is not from what I have read. The case I intend to use is a minuet 350, want it to be small and quiet.
