Card for mid-low range computer?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
This computer I'm building will have to do day-to-day word processing, as well as some light gaming such as minecraft, and maybe COD4/MW2.

I'm looking at this cad, Gigabyte Radeon HD 4650 1GB. Will that be good enough? I'm looking for something in the range of £40-£50, but the cheaper the better (thats ~US$65 to ~US$80).

Computer will have an AMD Athlon II X3 445 @3.1GHz, 4GB Kingston HyperX DDR3 1600MHz ram and an ASRock N68-S3 motherboard, if that helps.

Any suggestions would ideally be available on lambda-tek.com, but all suggestions are welcome


Thanks.

Save up jut a little more and get a 5770. Those have been going for US $90ish used.

I'm on a budget, so I need to stick right at $80 as an -absolute- maximum. I need new equipment - it isn't my build I'm doing it for a friend.

Most unhelpful comment of the day? I think so.

The 4650 is a great budget card, but see if you stretch for the 4670. Yeah def go for the 4670, only 55 including vat.

Or if you can go a few bucks more,
