    looking for a graphics card that can play games like L4D, COD4, Supreme commander on max settings at 1280x1024. Im not really sure what would be the best bet, is a 4870 overkill at this res? The cheaper the better really as ive just started uni but completely fed up having to use a geforce 6500. Happy to buy 2nd hand as well

    Grab one for £80, money well spent at your res. Will play anything max.

    4850 / 4770 should keep you going for a long time at the res

    4870x2! :D
    4850 should do fine, or 4870
