the 4770 should be ok at that res.... u should be able to get like med-high settings... the only problem is newegg is always out of the 4770 because its a really good budget card...

if you want to have headroom (to play future games) and u have a bit of spare cash... go with the gts 250..... but the 4770 should suit your needs fine

i was thinkn 250 but the benchmarks on some site the 4770 was at like 44frames and the 250 was at 39. maybe since ill be gone all summer when i get back core216 gtx 260 will drop like 20 bucks in price ill buy one of them. say i do this anyone know howmuch wattage it uses just it. because im supply cant handle it. but i have an extra 300w i could plug in just to run the card and thats all.

Age of Conan pretty much screams with ATi hardware. I don't know if it is an ATi branded game but it runs very well on their cards.



EDIT: WTF is the HD 4850 doing there?

This is what Xbit had to say about the HD 4770 vs GTX 250 (9800GTX)
"The Radeon HD 4770 leaves its market opponents, Radeon HD 4830 and GeForce 9800 GT, far behind, outperforming them by an average 14 and 17%, respectively. The average difference between the new card and the GeForce GTS 250 512MB is less than 1%"

would you say the GTX 260 216core owns all of them though?

yes a GTX 260 core 216 is a very beast card for its price, Rohan23 seems to know more about that card than most of the people in these forums so you can always send him a message here
