Default Time for an upgrade.

Cheer bro,

My old AMD Radeon HD 8450 with 512MB DDR3 is outdated now, so an upgrade seems on the horizon.

I need a graphics card that could run Microsoft Flight Simulator 10 on high to max settings while trying to maintain a frame rate of 30+.

And I dont have much gold in the bank

I have been looking at these:

AMD FirePro 3900
Paradigm PCs : 31004-26-41R : AMD FirePro V3900 - Graphics card - FirePro V3900 - 1 GB GDDR3 - PCI Express 2.1 x16 - DVI, DisplayPort - retail

Gigabyte ATI HD6670

Gigabyte Radeon HD6670 HDMI 2GB - Graphics card (PCI Express) - Find the lowest price, product reviews and information

Thanks for that, I had a look on pricespy.co.nz and this is how much it will cost in New Zealand dollars.
