Hi guys, i am stuck in a really difficult situation. I have to choose the best graphic card possible for my budget. I plan to use ebay or buy locally, whichever is cheapest.
My config is:
Intel celeron G 550 @ 2.6 ghz
Kingston 4 GB DDR 3 1066 mhz
Power supply 500 watts( some bizarre unknown name)
2 cooling fan 80 mm( extracted from 2 broken power supplies :| )
Hitachi 160 GB sata hard disk

Monitor is a 17" widescreen @ 1440x900 75 hertz
I DON'T PLAN TO USE AA AND AF BUT FXAA IN SOME CASES BUT THAT IS NOT NEEDED FOR ME AS I DON'T PAY ATTENTION TO LITTLE DETAILS WHILE I PLAY.

Max resolution i would play would be 1440x900 but if needed i may drop to 1280x800 or 1280x720 or even lower. :whistle:

I am not used to play all max and not want to do so either, so i will be high to medium settings and even low if on direct x 11.


My budget is $ 100 if i buy locally and up to $70 on ebay $30 shipping cost :(

What is available in my country:

Palit GT610 1GB sDDR3 64bit /HDMI $66.6
Palit GT620 1GB sDDR3 128b /HDMI $90
Palit GT630 2GB sDDR3 128bit /HDMI $ 100
Sapphire HD6570 1GB DDR3 128bit $103


Palit GT640 1GB sDDR3 128b /HDMI $ 126( got to save more then :pfff:

And i think that's all i can remember you guys ask when replying :D

Yep, anything lower than 640 wont be worth it. I would recommend getting a gtx650ti if you could. It will be a bit more future proof for u.

If you are willing to play demanding games, see if you can get 2nd Hand Card online. you can get a GTX560ti for that price. But test and benchmark it before u buy it.
