$150 & under - non OCing

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I am building a computer for myself & a buddy ( same system ).

CPU: i5 2400 ( $158 )
Mobo: ASRock P67 PRO3(B3)

Now I am trying to find a vid card that will be good for this set up, for light gaming ( he has a kid on the way ) & general everyday use. That will last a few years. Not interested in OCing or running dual cards.

Would prefer NVidia based. Budget around $150 & lower.

Was looking at the GeForce GTX 460 768 MB. I am open to suggestions though.

edit: Will be connected to a 46" flatscreen at times too

+1 For the 460.

When you're not getting the 2500k (which I highly recommend), there's really no point in getting a p67 board, get a cheaper h67 instead. Unless you want to add the few extra bucks for a 2500k.

Stick with an H67 board, and buy a GTX 460 1GB.

where were you people the past two day when i made a thread in the amd and intel forums on which motherboard to get. what is the difference between the H & P boards?. I already ordered the stuff yesterday & I got the 2400 for $150, which is cheaper then it normally goes for.

Like to add that this card might be connected to a 46 inch flatscreen too
