I want to get a AMD Phenom II system soon and I checked some graphics card benchmarks to find a card for the new machine that would bring both performance and value. Seems the ATI Radeon HD 4830 is a good choice in the 100€ segment (http://www.hpm-computer.de/product_info.php?info=p9565_Sapphire-Radeon-HD-4830-Dual-Slot-512MB.html).
Usually when you check grahics card benchmarks you don’t see any old hardware. I spotted a very nice benchmark at pcgh.de where they tested 6 generations of graphics cards and… viola! The one that I have currently (ATI X850) is still on the list. LOL 😀 I really can confirm such frame rates in Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare! It’s great! COD4 has a very performant engine that runs perfectly on older ATI cards like the X850.
