No point of buying a DX 9 card when you have alot faster ones supporting DX11 for just a bit higher price. I would suggest going for the Radeon 5750. Cheap card [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Yeah like Dragan said 5750 is good card, if u have a little more money money to spend take 5770.
58xx and 59xx series are better but useless if u dont have core i5 or 7 Smile
And forget about Nvidia Very Happy, AMD (used to be ATI) is the right choice

if there is someone here who has to complain about this, it's me. I have as most of you know already, a sucky geforce 4400 mx graphical card.

4850 and gts 250 have more raw power while 5670 supports directx11 which Bad Company 2 uses.

how come all the ati cards (mid range) have directx 11 support, where as only the top end nvidia ones support it. My first computer had a ATI card. Then with 3 computer i had an nvidia....and just happen to have nvidia since then.

i dont care which make, as long as its powerful enough and relative cheap.

I dont understand people buying high end cards, spending 150-200+ on cards which are then surpassed les than 6 months down the line by the same maker!!!

waste. From what i see alot of mid range cards will run most if not all of your top games fine. As i said....my card runs crysis. It even runs BC2 if not with a bit of lag.

It runs operation flashpoint again with abit of lag. Its only a 256mb card. My last one had 512mb. So i'm looking for 512mb minimum which is fast enough and powerful to run the top end games.

Nvidia had problems releasing the latest technology cards. ATi held the upper hand for most of the year 2010. Nvidia only caught up recently with the release of the GTX460.

As for the reason of why to buy cards that cost around 200 euros. They are the best bang for buck and best futureproof solution. For a card that costs 200 euros you are going to play most games on high detail for 2 years and after that the card will still be able to perform just on lower graphic quality. Of course they get surpassed in 6 months but that doesn't mean that all of the sudden they aren't worth shit. Graphic power is still there.
Good example is your Geforce 7900. This card was a high end card when released. And it was released years ago and still has the power to run the latest games.

Buying a cheap card you are never able to enjoy the latest games with all the graphic quality they provide. Of course you have to make sure that when you are buying a graphic card that your CPU is powerful enough not to bottleneck it.

hmm i opened up my pc yesterday. It didnt look as dusty as sylvia's by far i should add. Anyway,. i noticed a wire leading from the graphics card to i think the processor. if i replace the card what do i do about that?

i think i will get the 9800GT as leon recommended. However, those cards morph proposed loook equally appealing!!

Wire that leads from graphic card to processor? Never heard about it. You sure its not just an additional power connector?

is it 1 wire or 2 small wires (black & red or red & white) =
I think it might be a wire of a fan who is connected on motherboard

Lean also take into consideration the psu

check your psu loom to see if you have got any PCI-E plugs

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

But id also check what Wattage your PSU is, you can always convert two molex into a 6pin by a simple convert plug but you need to make sure the rails can cope with the amount too

Don't have SLi on your board? Fancy some 460 SLi benchmarks

I currently use a Radeon ATI 4850 HD 512 MB it runs WAW and most all games relatively smooth, definately go 4 the higher series Lean, I have crossfire capability on my motherboard and hope to take advantage of it this XMas there are a few games I play that support this, WAW included, due to the high graphics demand available for the game.

ok cool so then all i have to worry about is the power unit and the wattage or whatever the measurement is. I need to get a new card. So far

nvidia 9800GT
ATI Radeon 5670 (512mb) GDDR5
nvidia GTS 250 (512mb) GDDR3

What kind of budget lean?

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

dx11 so kinda more future pr00f than the 9800 series as thats kinda... 2 series behind

Pulled from the Nvidia site so should be right ;

Thermal and Power Specs:
Maximum GPU Tempurature (in C) 100
Maximum Graphics Card Power (W) 106
Minimum System Power Requirement (W) 400
Supplementary Power Connectors 6-pin

should be power wise sound, but another thing is does your board support pci-e 2.0? after looking a little i think your current card is PCI-E 1.0
