  1. well i bought e5200, i have 400w power supply , 2gb ddr2...well basicly the computer is like for home (1024x768)... but i do wanna play games not on the very high settings but yet i want to enjoy it and have nice graphics...

    so what will suit me best between these: HD3870, HD4670, 9600GT,9800GT.

    go to and read their tables for your budget to determine what you need. There's a card for every budget out there. Their tables show performance and price ranges.

    I spent a few minutes at that site (which I found difficult to navigate to and around) lots of info, and the original supplied link "" actually does not take you to their site on its own

    I ended up finding prices here:

    And Performance Charts here:,1.html

    Not sure if they are the best links at the huge site, but I got sick of searching around it!

    i think i decided that ill buy 4670... the question is - is there big difference between 1gb or 512?

    i see the 9600gt getting better results... and the price is kinda the same... how much power supplement it needs?
