Windows 7: Looking for an ATI card to finish my build off

Looking for an ATI card to finish my build off

I can't decide which to go with, so I'm looking for suggestions

Only requirements: native HDMI out, since this will be a HTPC/mid gaming rig, also, keep it under $150 maybe?



Thoughts?

I'd like Direct X 11, but all the cards that do are only 128-bit..

My AGP card even has a memory interface of 256. heh

Here's a great DX10.1 card

Diamond Radeon HD 4670 Video Card - 1GB GDDR3, PCI Express 2.0, CrossFireX Ready, Dual DVI, HDTV, HDMI Support at TigerDirect.com

Better, more expensive - http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...663&CatId=3585

And going by your post, I think this is what you're really looking for - 256 bit memory and DX11

For 20 dollars US more, you could have this. I think this one is the best value for the money -

That extra 20 dollars gets you an extra 150 mHz on GPU clock speed and 200 mHz on memory speed. Sound investment.

I saw that card on Newegg, it says 128-bit

Newegg.com - ASUS EAH5770/2DIS/1GD5 Radeon HD 5770 (Juniper XT) 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

$10 cheaper and identical model number, but the stats are off.. hm...

Look at Asus' page here.

Perhaps that "Juniper" in the Newegg title, and missing "Juniper" in TD title is the difference? I dunno.

I think TD is wrong. 5770's and 5750's are 128 bit, not 256. But they are GDDR5 128 bit, which is said to be comparable to GDDR3 256. 5800's are 256 bit.

Yeah, see TD is talking about the 5770 here, but they include a line that says 5800, so they screwed up their information on the 5770, to include 5800's 256 bit. But it's really 128 bit.
