Default Re: Video card suggestions

It is one of the ones I mentioned earlier.
(the HD4670 right?)
Yes it is worth waiting for, and it is not very power hungry.
If you have even a half-decent PSU, it will run fine.
And yes waiting for it will be best. Don't maake a rash decision just so you will get it sooner. You will be kicking yourself in the butt later.

Yeah you also mentioned the 4830. But the 4670 will probably do all i need it to and some I am guessing.

Thanks for all the inputs..!Once again.

You don't need to wait for that particular Sapphire video card. Any of the HDCP Ready HD 4670 cards have an HDMI output and output sound through HDMI.


You want quiet? It doesn't get any quieter than this: SAPPHIRE 100255U Radeon HD 4670

eah, the 4830 is more of a mid/higher budget card. They run around $110-120.

But there aren't any more GDDR4 cards.
Plus it's 7.1 surround, and sapphire makes excelent cards.

Foothead: am i missing something here? Isnt this the same card? looks different...

Uh oh..Atomic Rooster is here (always a good thing in my opinion)

I am willing to have a little noise. I just dont want my PC to sound like a Chevy 454. So, given they are about the same price. Which one is better?

The one i listed is definitely better.

It has the same GPU.

They're all pretty much the same performance wise. The one foothead linked to has a different cooler and a higher memory clock.


foothead - all HDCP Ready cards transmit sound through the HDMI output.

Huh.
I didn't read the whole thing, but it normally mentions HDCP and has a little logo.
OK AR, you win, as usual.
