    ATI or Nividia, doesn't really matter. Going to replace an integrated HD4200 and I need something cheap and good for gaming at 1024 x 768. Crysis, Fallen Earth, Fallout 3( with mods, expect 100+ computer bots on screen if it makes a difference) Oblivion, ect, hopefully at min 20 fps at high settings, no AA


    Windows 7 Ultimite 64 bit
    4 GB of DDR3 1333 1.65V
    530W PSU
    Athlon II X4 630 2.8GHz
    ASUS M4A785TD-M EVO


    This is probably my 6th post about graphics cards, to many opinions from different people, links to products suggested would be great also.

    depends on your location. At the Micro Center near here they always have good sales. You can find 9800GT's, 4770's for $99 and 9600GT's, 4670's for $88 or less.
    The fastest one out of the bunch I posted is the 4770. If you are ordering online, get an ATI 4850 typically found for $99.

    The GTS250 and HD4850 both go for ~$100 at newegg. Those would be the cards to get.

    I think your best choice is the 4850.

    i'd say that's the card to get in your price range. the 4850 and gts 250 are roughly equivalent, and that's a good non-reference card. you can probably oc it fairly well, much more so than a 4850 at least.

    naa 5670 sucks, the 4770 beats the hell out of it..
    oh, and 4850>4770 by 15-20%
    get an ATI 4850, and u have integrated HD 4200, use it in Hybrid Crossfire X with ur 4850, and get kickass performance, maybe even beating a GTX 260/4870...
    Chack if ur Mobo supports Hybrid Crossfire X, as that is the best cost effective solution..
    BTW, it probably will...

    Sorry, but thats wrong.
    Hybrid crossfire is only for the ATI 3450,3470 and such. Its outdated technology still being advertised. AMD needs to update this as the HD4200 is the same as the 3300/3200 IGP. Even the new HD 4290 is the same design, but just faster onboard GPU clock speed.
