Ok guys so i'm buying a new grafx card in a month or so. What card would you recommend? i need a mainstream level card not going higher than 130$. Also, if i buy a new grafx card and replace it with my onboard GF6150, will it up the performance?
Ok, so i'm not buying from any specific online store, so i only got some choices:
1. Saphire Radeon HD5670 512MB GDDR5
2. GeForce 9500GT 1GB
3. GeForce 9600GT 1GB
4. HD 4770
At the moment i only have these choices as i haven't checked some stores, which might have better cards, but i'll update the list. So, which card would be best, mostly pcsx2?
First one should be best for PCSX2 and in general
thx for the advice, to tell the truth it's perfect since it don't need a 6-pin connector, and it's low-power consumming. But i'm still searching
You mean that funky extra 6-pin power plug a bunch of newer cards need? There are adapter that go from 2 4-pin molex to the 6-pin thingy if you've got the PSU headroom and open plugs to use it.

well 4770 is a bit stronger than 5670, but for PCSX2 im not sure.
Its early in the 5xxx series lifespan, so you will probably get a bit more performance with future updates, ATI is nice like that.
Intel Core 2 Duo PM8600 @ 2.4 GHz
4 GB DDR3 1066 RAM
ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3670 512 MB
AMD Phenom II x2 550 (unlocked to 4)@ 3.5ghz
4 GB DDR3 1600 RAM
Sapphire 5770 1GB
so, i should get the 5670 right? and also, does it support overclock from catalyst control center?
sorry for being noob, but i've never used ati
msi afterburner supports the HD5xxx series
i do advice you to pay the 10 extra bucks to get a 1GB 5670 tho for non pcsx2 use
ATI Radeon Sapphire Vapor-X HD5750. The best bang for your buck.
