Hi all. Love the site. Got a great Antec 2480 case based upon the review on this site and are running a 785 mobo using onboard graphics. An Athlon II x3 405e completed the core of the machine.
My priorities are:-
Silent (or very quiet)
Performance (should play 3D games at 1366x768 resolution)
(running Windows 7 64bit btw)
I'm thinking of upgrading the graphics card off the onboard one.
Should I go for a passive HD4670 or wait for a passive HD5570 to come out?
I do not fancy fiddling with after-market passive coolers. I suspect that the HD5570 at half height may never have a passive cooler as standard. I know the HD5750(?) has a passive cooler but that's out of my price range.
Any advice? Am I missing an obvious alternative?
