    Your first link is dead. (?)

    The GT-240 I linked is only $40.00 after rebate> EVGA honors their rebates. I speak from personal experience.

    That´s true... but GT-240 when he can get GTS-430 with the same price and the same rebates..?

    I'd take my HD4670 over a GT220... But then I'm biased as I use one now. :haha:

    Well, no he can't get the same price on the GT-430 as he can on the GT-240.

    The GT-240 is $79.95 with a $40.00 MIR plus $5.99 shipping, which nets down to $45.98 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130533&cm_re=GT-240-_-14-130-533-_-Product

    Your linked GT-430 is $69.95 with a $10.00 MIR plus $4.99 shipping, which nets down to $64.94 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130579&cm_re=GTS_430-_-14-130-579-_-Product

    The GT-240 carries GDDR-5, and has a memory bandwidth of 52+ GBs

    The GT-430 carries GDDR-3 and has a memory bandwidth of about 25 GBs

    (Both specs from EVGA's pages on these 2 cards).

    So, with all the new bells and whistles aside, the GT-240 should game better because of the higher throughput available.

    If you need any further assistance with 3 grade mathematics, don't hesitate to ask.

    He's not, just look at his name and you'll understand :stickout: .

    Either way he has a point, the 430 is a bit underwhelming and if you are going to wander into the higher territory price wise I'd say just start looking at cheap 5670's.

    Regarding the topic's question between the 220 & 4670, the 4670 is better and as an owner of one I am pleased with its gaming performance at 1280x1024.

    +1 more recommendation for the HD4670 here too.
