Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
So ive been playing a lot of starcraft 2 lately, and ive come to realise i "need" a new video card. Right now ive got an ATI 4670, and its ok, it runs SC2 well, but its loud. Its not supposed to be though, i bought it mainly because all the reviews talked about how quiet it was. I got it open box, and it looked like the box was kicked down the stairs and left out in the rain for a few days, but it was like 35 dollars when this card first came out, so it was a killer deal. It works ok as a graphics card, but the fan has always been garbage, forcing me to manually control the fans and leave the side of my case off, and the breaking point was when my roommate came home and asked "Hey, are you vacuuming?" in all seriousness.
So basically, i want a new ATI card, not too expensive (hopefully under 150 bucks), preferably able to run games as medium to high settings at 1900x1200 (because im also looking for a new monitor...). I tried looking at toms hardware but that site is basically unnavigatable now, and once i found the charts i couldnt figure out wtf they mean.
So someone, just tell me, whats the best, most reasonably priced ATI card at the moment?
