I am trying to decide between two different graphics cards that are low cost for a specific game. Honestly, I know basically nothing when it comes to this but I think these two cards seem alright and would like some help. The game I am purchasing the card for is League of Legends (and various other games around the same requirements) and I would like to make sure my performance would be fine. Here are the two links to the cards on tigerdirect, thank you for your time and help! :beer:

Hi xxstimpzxx.
You may think that those latest 6xx cards, (being a new release) are good but sadly they are a con. > http://www.atomicmpc...rebranding.aspx
Does the card have to be low profile?
What brand and model of PSU do you have?

Thank you for your reply!

Yes unfortunately it does need to be low profile, I don't have much room. As for the brand of PSU I'm not sure but I do believe its 525w? not very good at this.

The PSU will be good as the cards being considered require under 75w which can be supplied from the PCI-e slot.
The GT 610, No.
I have a couple of cards lined up but first.

What Motherboard do you have? if it has integrated graphics, the HD 6570 may be suitable to run CrossFireX with it.

Thanks for the info, that helps.

the HD 6570, not possible to run in CrossFireX.


Unfortunately

, low profile cards are usually $15-25 more than standard.

This card would be my first choice, But unable to find it on a Canadian site >

Second choice, lower performance but would still be good for your needs, > http://www.newegg.ca...396&PID=3938566

Third, > http://www.newegg.ca...396&PID=3938566


Here is a list of known present available LP cards, there may be some new additions in the next month. > http://www.squidoo.c...011-pci-express

Hi.
Did you make a choice for the GPU? If installed, How does it compare to the original one? An update would be appreciated.
