Ok, This is my first post so hi all.
But I come here with a problem; Deciding the gpu that works for me. My comp cost me $500 usd, it came with a pretty good processor, hard drive and 6 gigs of ram. It also came with 1 big weakness: The gpu. My current gpu is an internal ati radon hd 4200, it's abysmal. I'm going to upgrade my gpu soon enough, I've narrowed it down to 2 gpus:
I only have 1 monitor running so some people claim the extra gb won't be necessary and to fork up the exra $30 for the nvidia gpu, but I'm not certain why. The ati gpu costs less and has 2 gigs, the nvidia costs more and has 1 gig. I've come here for help as to which gpu would be best for me, I want to be able to play bf3 at a decent frame rate as well as Skyrim. I'm trying to stay below the $200 price range but if the Nvidia really is better I'd be willing to fork up the extra $30 or so bucks. When it comes down to it: Which gpu will serve me better, I will be willing to elaborate if necessary. Also, if anyone comes across a better gpu around the price point i'll be willing to consider.
