  1. Hi,

    I am looking to get a video card and PSU for my computer ( listed below). what is the best i can get for around $299(PSU and video card)? I am not good with video card specs so i am just asking for suggestions, or if you know a good place that i can read up on video card information that would also be good.
    On a different site they told me to go with the Radeon HD 4850 is that good or can i get a better one for my money?
    thank you

    I would like to play games like Diablo 3, Starcraft 2(pretty much the best PSU and video card i can get for under 299 please).
    Thank you

    Hi Labarr,
    I will add an alternative option to BouncaBobs suggestion. The 4870 is about 10% less powerful than the 4890, but will give you good performance up to 1920x1080 with detail on high in most games. The corsair PSU is of excellent quality with 41A on the 12V rail, and 80+ certified. it would also save a few bucks. Here is a review of the 4870 VS the 4890 so you can see the difference.



    oh yeah, the XFS has a lifetime warranty as well

    I currently have the SAPPHIRE 4870 and am lovin' it. I support either one, but for 274, getting a 4890 and 750watt antec was a pretty sweet deal :)
