9800gx2 Replacement HELP


Standard Member
hi, i want to replace my 9800gx2 for somthing a bit smaller as i have just got a PS3 for all my games so i will only be useing my pc for playing the odd film, and burnig dvds and web browsing, i am on quite a budget, i want something cool and quiet as my 9800gxt is running at 80c at idle and sounds like a jet, i have found 2 cards that catch my eye;
MSI GeForce GT 430 2GB GDDR3 for £49.99 OR
XFX ATI RADEON 6770 1GB GDDR5 for £68.99

what do you all think, my limit is about £70-£80 in an ideal world, as i dont game on my pc any more
thanks for all the help

The 6770 is way more powerful than the 430 and is good value at that price. If you ever do want to play a game it will be able to handle it.
