friend changing vga

Recommended Posts

So the story behind this is that my friend had a 8800 or a 8600... anyway it burned :D and now he's sitting on a 6700 or something like that :D

And he is going to change it, what should he get?

His pc is kind of old, and he cant spend a lot of money on it, so I think we are looking at a mid 9000 series or early 200 series :/

He knows that he wont be able max out games and stuff, but he mainly wants to play wow/bad company and other newer games on maybe medium graphics.

Any suggestions ?

Thanks

Welcome to the forums dude :)

 

well, first of all, knowing how much u guys can spend would be good to know, but ill give it a shot and go from USD$160 to USD$190.

5770s would be the way to go in my opinion, at least in that price range.

I would say the GTX 460 is the best mid-range GFX card right now at $200 USD

It all comes down to what he has for a PC.

 

I am guessing he has a PCI-X slot correct?

 

What is the rest of the specs of the PC? No point in buying a highend card if he has a slow CPU and a weak PSU.
