Downgrade?

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
So I need money now for a new cell phone and headphones. I recently bought my 5750 for $130, but I don't pc game at all. I bought this gpu to try it out, but I like to play on my 360 more.

Now I think this gpu is too powerful for me. I'm hoping to downgrade to something a lot cheaper because I can use the extra cash.

I Need recommendation from you guys on what gpu would work for me.
Something that:
1. will run two monitors; one 42" lcd tv and a 24" at max resolution at the same time
2. play blu ray movies
3. won't limit me on doing anything as regular computing goes, I just don't need it to game

I would like the ati 5xxx series, but nvidia is ok too if it save me money.

Thanks for your guys help.

Basically any HD series card supports HD out, so it should play Blu-Ray. Correct me if I'm wrong, but my HD4550 can do that too.

As for two monitors at max resolution, it really depends on what you are doing. An X1300PRO can drive a 46" LCD TV at 1920x1080 no problem. That's if we're talking about watching DVD's and the like. As for gaming and HD movies, it can't do that.

Since you don't need games, then an entry level HD5xxx card like the 5450 or 5550 will suit you.

I was thinking of getting a 5670 on sale for like $50~$60. That good enough or I can get something even weaker?

The Hd5670 would be a steal, Still up around the performance of a GTS250/9800GTX+. You could really go down the and HD5540 like posted above.

So I should get a 5450, 5570 or 5670 right?
How about options for nvidia and maybe the 4xxx series?

Id go with 5450 unless you might game eventually. As far as 4xxx series you lose DX11 features which may or may not matter someday

Maybe this for an HD4xxx series? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814125250 DVI and VGA though, don't know if it matters much for you.
