Advice needed - choosing new Graphics card
Hi there, would appreciate any advice on this.
At the moment I have a rubbish 8400GS. But now I have decided to invest in a much better card. I don't really want to spend much more than £200. But will go up to £250 if its worth the performance/price is worth it.
First of all, little info.
My resolution is 1680x1050.
I'm looking to play games like Mass Effect, Unreal 3, COD4 and GTA4 maxed out (including full anti-aliasing & AF) with a good frame rate (50+).
Games like Crysis, id like to be able to play on high if not very high with a frame rate that is playable. (obviously no AA for that).
Ive looked at various benchmarks and it seems my best bets are the following cards.
Would rather not spend this much money unless its extremley good value.
8800GT SLI - £280
GTX260 - £250
HD4850 (512MB) CF - £250
HD4870 (1GB) - £245
Ideal amount of money to spend.
HD4870 (512MB) - £185
HD4850 (1GB) - £170
8800GT - £140
HD4850 (512MB) - £125
Can anyone give any advice as to which is the best value for money card to get in my price range and to meet my demands?
Would really appreciate any advice thanks.
