Hi there guys just wanted some advice on what you think the better graphics card is, the GTS 450 or the GT 630. Now I'm talking about the Galaxy GTS 450 DDR5 1GB and the Gigabyte GT 630 DDR3 1GB. I would appreciate if you have one of these cards the experience you had with it.

I was planning to build a budget performance system with these parts:

Processor : Intel i5 3570
Motherboard : ASUS P8B75-M-LX Intel B75 1155pin
Memory: Corsair Vengeance 8 GB (blue)
Power Supply : Thermaltake TR-500PCAU TR2 500Watt

I mainly want it to be able to perform for casual gaming, quite a bit of video watching, and the occasional web surfing.

It would be widely appreciated if you could inform me on something that performs better and is around the same price ( I am on a very tight budget)

Just some FPS medium settings, maybe some Battlefield 3 if I can. Also, some Batman Arkham Asylum possibly on medium to high settings.

Its awesome how quickly reponses are coming through! Thanks!
 
At the something like 1650x1050 I would imagine that a 6670 would do fine on medium to high settings in battlefield 3 with Anti Aliasing turned off. A 7750 will get you better quality of graphics and probably perform better overall but again a 6670 should fit the bill. Things below a 650Ti are generally a poor value gaming wise even at the lower resolutions. And the reason why I say this is because you spend 80 percent of the money required for something good and then end up with a product that isn't quite nearly as good.

Will it be able to run high end games on at least low settings? I really want to be able to play medium end on med - high settings.

Focussing back on to the gts 450 or the gt 630 it seems that gts 450 is an entry card and gt 630 is a low end card. Sorry for being a total noob, but what is the difference? The gt 630 has better core and shader clock but lower memory clock (ddr3 and ddr5, so obviously), the rest i dont know.
