In its place...

Don't get the HD 4870 unless you play at like 1920x1200 or higher..

What would you call the best near-price alternative to the HD4870?

EDIT: Broken link, was to a EVGA GTX 260

I saw this (Newegg.com - MSI N260GTX-T2D896 OC GeForce GTX 260 896MB 448-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards) but I don't know how quickly that will come back into stock...

Slower.. the HD 4870 and the GTX 260 Core 216 are your best bets in your price range..

But I'm saying don't get the HD 4870 unless you have a really big monitor that has a high Res

Thanks for the GFX card advice.



...would I have any problems switching to this Mobo [EDIT: Broken links] (Search 'Foxconn M7VMX-K LGA 775 NVIDIA GeForce 7050' on Newegg -- I dont know why I can't link to the page... it doesn't seem to be a deactivated product.)?

this one?
Newegg.com - Foxconn M7VMX-K LGA 775 NVIDIA GeForce 7050 / nForce 610i Micro ATX Intel Motherboard - Intel Motherboards

thats a micro atx mobo. i'd suggest a full size one, unless you are tight on space. and if you're thinking of a 4870, you're not tight on space.

Newegg.com - G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Desktop Memory
this ram is much better and like $3 more.

as for the mobo, like nagasama said dont get micro atx unless you need it because you have a micro atx case or sumthin, your best of staying with a p45 chipset mobbo which will help you overclcok your cpu alot, but if thats is of no concern to you, a p35 chipset mobo with a bios update will be fine.

I'm only drawn to the microATX motherboard because it's so cheap and the mobo I listed originally appears to be out of stock. If I'm not planning on overclocking anything would there be any significant performance decreases from the microATX?

not if your not overclocking, they just tend to have poor features and less pci slots.

yep. if you are not overclocking and plan on running a single video card, they are fine.

i like the asus 780g that i just got a few days ago. its micro and its a pretty nice mobo.
