Hi,

I am ordering new Dell system.

Processor : Intel i-7 ( 2.93 GHz )

RAM 8 GB DDR3


I will be using TV as my Monitor.

I am also getting a TV Tuner Card with it.

I want to watch High Definition Movies too.


Which Video Card should I choose from following options ? OR will it make any difference if I choose the first one ?

It says ATI Raedeon HD5770. Does it mean High Definition video ? Should I choose that to Watch High Definition Content ?


1024MB NVIDIA® GeForce® GT220 [Included in Price]
1024MB NVIDIA® GeForce® GTS 240 [add Rs.3,143.55]
ATI® Radeon™ HD5770 1GB [add Rs.5,239.25]
1GB NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 460 [add Rs.11,526.35]


Thank You

Compare the specs, performance and reviews of choice numbers 1 and 4 on your list (examples only, different brand details vary);

You can see the vast difference in all aspects and this is reflected in the cost of the two cards.

High Definition display, graphics not only video, remember it means the card is HD capable, if the screen is not HD an older CRT monitor for example then the video playback will only be as good as the monitor can produce, LCD would be better, ultimately your display should have a HDMI port for best results.
Two things to consider before deciding on which card to upgrade to 1: Will the new card fit inside my case and 2: Will my PSU need to be upgraded to power the card.
