far cry 2

HL's

UT3

L4D

4850 or the 4870!!!!

4850, two 8800GT's in SLI or a 4850X2/GTX 275 since you seem like the budget type.

4850 all the way dude get the 1GB model if ur monitor is 1680:1050 or above

4850.. I like it so far.

i have the xfx 4850 512mb edition. i have it running on a 24 inch monitor, 1920x1200 it seems to do fine it plays all those games you listed great. just depends on your processor.

4870!!!!!!!!! http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102810

my gtx 280 fares well so far, so does my 8800 gts 512, id recommend GTS 250

thanks for the reply's guys. i might be getting a 4850 or 4870 haven't decided yet

@granolaaaaa

i have a almighty amd x2 4800+ will that be enough or i will be bottlenecked?

Good golly, everyone is now pulling themsevles towards the 4870 after AMD dropped the prices off them. =O


The CPU should be fine as well. Just be sure to have more cool air for it.

Hmmm, I think that CPU might be a little bottleneck.

well right now it's running at 27c , that's ok right? maybe a little oc will help me with that bottleneck.

9800GTX+

GTS250.

Cheaper than 9800gtx+, but just as good.
