Hi guys please suggest a graphic card that i need to buy below $ 175. My lcd supports at rec resolution of 1650x1080 (HD one).. so ill play games at that level only.

i have shortlisted some cards please suggest which model and of which brand should i go for.

ATI 4850 or Nvidia 250 GTS

Available Manufacturers : EVGA, XFX, BFG Tech, MSI,


please suggest which card should i go for another thing is that my power supply is 450 so i cant go for a card that needs 500 or more power.

Thanks
 
Yup, both the 4850 and GTS 250/9800GTX+ perform nearly the same.
Get which ever card you can locate the cheapest, any of those manufacturers are fine.
Do not worry to much about getting a full 1Gb of RAM.
At your resolution you will have little real world use for the extra 512Mb.

Thanks for the replies guys!

Ill go for a 250 GTS at 512 mb..

Now one thing XFX and other manufacturers have certain overclocked editions are they worth the extra money or should i stick to stock speed of GPU at 738 mhz..


Any more suggestions from anyone would be appreciated.
