| Alright well I had some questions for everybody. Here's what I need to know.|
I am building a rig and I need to know if I can get an average of 30+ FPS with the setup that I am about to present. I also would like to know if Crossfire is used in GTA4, I know that SLI isn't but answers are appreciated.
Processor : Phenom II x4 3.2Ghz, quad core.
GPU: XFX Radeon HD 4850 1GB 256-Bit GDDR3, Core clock is at 625Mhz. Memory clock is at 1990 Mhz.
3GB of DDR3 Ram 1066
Also is their a mid-high range video card that could be a step up from the 4850 that may cost equal to or $30 - $50.
The only other card in that range is the GTS 250 (Rebadged 8800/9800 GTX). Which would outperform the 4850 in some games. The ATI would run better in Source engine games, while the GTS 250 would run better in Unreal engine games.
It really comes down to whether you prefer ATI/AMD or Nvidia.
