Default Video Card Upgrade

The onboard HD 4200 is great and all, but it's starting to give me choppy videos and I'd like my games to be smoother as well. I per the ATI cards, but some Nvidia cards caught my eye and I wanted to get some opinions on the ones I was looking at. I want bang for buck here.




That Asus GTS 250 is open box and 36 dollars off full price. So far my favorite too. $120 is my max right now. Suggestions and what about the ones I've linked up.

Desktop: AMD Phenom II 840 X4 @ 3.7Ghz // Asus Sabertooth 990FX // CM HAF 932 // XFX HD 5770 // 8GB Corsair Vengeance @1600 + 8GB G.skill Sniper @ 1600mhz (C9) // Cooler Master 600W // Zalman CNPS9900 // Sidewinder x8
Laptop: Dell Vostro 3555 // AMD A6-3400 1.4Ghz x4 w/ 6520 // 500GB HDD // 4GB Ram upgrading to 8GB soon // Backlit Spillproof Keyboard

Default Re: Video Card Upgrade

GTS 250 and HD 4850 are almost exactly the same performance.

4850 would slightly edge it out.

GTS has PhysX though.

I'd get the GTS because you could make it a dedicated physx card when you upgrade next instead of binning it.

BUY NOW. it will not be there in a few hours.
