New Graphics card

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I was wondering what would be the best price to performance for a card in the 200-300 dollar price range? I saw the new price drops on nvidia but ive been reading so much about the new ati stuff so. I was wondering what would be my best option right now?

Ati HD4870, roughly around $300.
The HD4850 is around $100 cheaper.

That's what I would recommend.

$200 - Radeon 4850
$300 - Radeon 4870.

Like members above said, 4850 and 4870 are in that price range. Make you have an adequate PSU and processor.

Steroids, go here and fill in your specs: http://www.overclock.net/specs.php?do=addsystem

We don't know what's in your computer. You could have a PIII for all we know.

Those are easily the choices for ATI, and probably best price/performance right now. Everyone will argue over that.

If you prefer NVidia, look into the 9800GTX or the 8800GTS 512MB g92. Both are good cards.

The Nvidia 8800GT's in SLI are pretty sweet for under $300. About $150 per card. or the ATI 4870
