I'm rebuilding my PC as the mobo died on me, Just looking at Graphics Cards and found this at a reasonable price

 

MSI GeForce GTX 460 HAWK "Super-OC" 1024MB GDDR5 PCI-Express Graphics Card

http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct....rodid=GX-099-MS

 

Will it play GTA 4, FEAR 3 ect ok?

 

My old card is the XFX ATI Radeon HD 4890 1024MB GDDR5 PCI-Express Graphics Card.

 

Thanks

460 is a good card, but I don't consider it to be a worthy upgrade from the card you have now.

OK, Thanks...

 

I'll have a look at what else I can get.

 

BTW, rest of the spec I'm getting is this:

 

Intel Core i5-2500k 3.30GHz (Sandybridge) Socket LGA1155 Processor - Retail

Asus P8P67 LE Intel P67 (Socket 1155) DDR3 Motherboard - (Sandybridge) ** B3 REVISION **

Corsair XMS3 4GB (2x2GB) DDR3 PC3-12800C9 1600MHz Dual Channel Kit

Microsoft Windows 7 Bundle - Home Premium 64 Bit

- Western Digital Caviar Blue 500GB SATA 6Gb/s 16MB Cache

LG GH22NS70 22x DVD±RW SATA ReWriter (Black) - OEM

BenQ G2222HDL 21.5" Widescreen LED Monitor - Black [9H.L3RLN.IBE]

 

**edit** I forgot to put the K on the CPU! Mobo is fine, got them in two other PCs

Wait, wait, wait.

First: do not get the i5-2500 - get i5-2500k instead.

Second: do not get Asus P8P67 LE. LE means it's a cut down, low budget version. Asrock P67 Pro3 and MSI P67A-C45 will be far better.

I have the 4890 and it plays GTA4 no problem at 60fps. Unless you have other games you shouldn't need to upgrade.
