Default Re: Which card for AMD cpu?

I'd just get the best card you can afford so that later on if\when you upgrade your CPU you won't have an underpowered graphics card dragging it down.

A 4850 is probably a hell of a card for the price though. I'd say it'd be a good match for your system.

If you can afford a GTX260 or 4870 though, those would be better... I'd personally recommend the 260 because of the extra memory.

... I guess I forgot to ask, what are you using now? If its anything in the 8800GTS\GT\GTX line or higher, I wouldn't really bother at this point.
if your asking me, then my current card is an fx5500 LOL. piece of crap i know... i sold my 8800GTX a while ago and reverted back to this one during my nongaming hiatus. so yeah, anything at the moment would be a substantial upgrade XD
