Graphics For Your Spare Change

Now that we are in the Black Friday Weekend and heading to Cyber Monday we have several graphics cards at a really low price.

I would buy two of these if I had a up to date rig. For me, I'll be waiting another year.

The very well received Radeon HD 7850 is being sold for $139.99. After rebate it's only $109.99

This machine has 2GB of GDDR5 inner cache, 1.0Ghz, a beastly fan, crossfire support (so feel free to buy mulitple), 2 DVI ports, 1 HDMI, and 2 Mini-Display ports which are no laughing matter (these things can give you a resolution of 2560×1600).NOW that's not all of course. GeForce has some deals if you like yourself some drivers.

Now this is the GeForce GT 640 sorts of impressive. First, it is selling for $89.99 currently. This machine as you can see has a total of 4 display ports on it: 2 DVI, 1 HDMI, and an ol'VGA if you still have a use for it. It actually comes with 2GB of DDR3 (not GDDR5 like the last one) inner cache, 1.05Ghz and of course a massive fan. 


If you have very little money to spend on a new graphics card and your rig is as old as mine the GeForce GT 610 can be a decent improvement.
It's only $50 and has dropped as low as $45 recently. With 2GB of DDR3 memory, 810MHz clock speed, with 2 DVI ports, with a nice little Mini-HDMI port. 

Both of these machines use PC-Express x16 encase you're still reading. it would be hard to not get all up on in this but I'm still running a discontinued Motherboard which is a bit of a bummer.

I'll start a savings account to use for next years Christmas part list. I'll be able to play pretty games with the rest of you soon enough.
