Hey guys Iím currently in the process of building a computer and Iíve ran into some questions. Iím doing some research looking for a video card to get and to do that I was reading through a couple of magazines. Iíve had the ATI Radeon 5770 in mind but I was reading a review about it and the author who was plotting the HD 5770 against the GTX 260 kept on mentioning how the 260 did have more power and performed slightly better in most games. Then in the conclusion the author stated: ďThe HD 5770 did manage to play most of our games at 1,920 x 1,200 though, which shows that itís not a total waste of money.Ē In the next article which was comparing the Sapphire HD 5750 1GB against the previous cards, the author stated at the end: ďIf you need an upgrade and have only 110 Euro to spend, a GTX 260 (rev 2) is the best option.Ē
Alright soÖ This is extremely confusing to me because I cannot find a GTX 260 for 160$ which is equivalent to 110 Euros is right?
Anyway, I really canít spend any more than 160 Ė 170$ on the video card for this build and Iíd really like to get the most bang for the buck. I have in mind lots of Modern Warfare 2. I would like to see it run MW2 at full settings at either 720p or 1080p resolution while running fraps with 60 fps.
Another question, what does the (rev 2) part of the GTX 260 name mean? I've never seen it before.
That's about it for now, if you know anything about this or have any answers I would love to hear what you have to say, thanks in advance
Oh and do ATI Radeon cards have Digital Vibrance options like nVidia cards do?
