I am new in BG n looking for some suggestions for buying a new gpu. At first I decided to buy with lowest budget. But .... Just after reading your posts here, I have managed to change my budget. Opinions of BG people were really helpful for me to understand about the game related hardwares. Now my choices are gigabyte/saphre 5670 ddr3(6300bdt) and gigabyte GTX 440(7000bdt).
5670 ddr5 version was in the list but seems like it is no longer available in the market. If you know any shop selling ddr5 version of 5670(gigabyt or sapphr)... Plz let me know.
5670 ddr3 has 775-790mhz gpu and 4000 memory clock. On the other hand, GTX 440 has 830 mhz gpu and 1800 memory clock. Its very confusing for a novice like me. The games I would like to play are Assassin's Creed : Brotherhood, Call of Duty : Black Oops etc. I'm eagerly waiting for the Hitman : Absolution.
My monitor is samsung Crt 17inch and using C2d 2.4ghz processor, intel g31mobo, 2gb+1gb 800mhz ram and a generic psu. It should be noted that buying a good PSU is nt possible now:-(.
So, Please suggest me a card between the two cards fits best for my set up. (mentioning another gpu around 7k will be highly appreciated)
