I have to problems / issues that I need help with if at all possible.
Firstly, Im looking for a budget PCI-E GPU, for roughly £50-60.
I had previously encountered the Saphire 4670 512mb for about £55~
but I just checked online today and i can get a PowerColour HD 4850 512mb for £63~
The 4850 is on sale, previously about £90, so my question really is;
is the powercolour 4850 a gaming card?
or is there a reason its drastically reduced?
would it be better to get the 4670?
or a completely different card?
My second query is one to do with my TV. I just bought a 28" Full HD 1080p Hannspree TV and plugged the VGA cable into it from my pc from my old GPU (1800x). Unless its me being stupid, I was thinking that because its a full HD tv, surely I should be able to set the PC resolution to 1920x1080, but instead it wont even recognize my 1680x1050 native res. Is there a reason for this? Im having to lower the res to about 1400x900 or something? is there a fix around this? do i need a GPU with a hdmi cable or something like that?
Thanks very much, I know its a lot to ask and you're all very busy people, but any help would be greatly appreciated
