Which Card?


Recommended Posts

Would you guys reccomend a 256MB ATI Radeon 3650, or (FOR AN EXTRA HUNDERED DOLLARS!!!!!!)

an NVIDIA GeForce 9800GT (512MB)

Obviously the NVIDIA wins, but Its a debate for me because its an extra hundered bucks and Im not so sure I need the 512. I just want to be able to have a computer that 3 years from now will still be able to run new programs well.

Get a HD4850, it is roughly the same price range as a 9800GT and its performance far exceeds that of the nVidia card.

Check it out, I'm fairly confident you can find a 4850 that doesn't break your budget, and you will get far more bang for your bucks. I don't know where you are purchasing it from, but I assume you're a newegg? Either way, 4850 is the way to go. It's the undisputed king of the mid-range scene right now.

And if you for whatever reason can't go with anything but the two you listed, then go for the GT. Just know that the 4850 is the better deal, by far. :)

EDIT: Seems Chris beat me to the punch. I side with him 100%
