Budget Graphics Card Roundup

Counter Strike Source

Don’t have flash installed? click here for a jpeg


Counter Strike: Source is a classic and still very popular game from Valve. It is not a demanding 3D game by today’s standards so we benchmarked our cards at a modest 1024×768 resolution but at high details with 2xMSAA/8x anisotropic filtering enabled.

The HD3450’s are the only cards on test today that struggle with the settings we used. The XFX 9600 GSO stands out from the pack and is playable at much higher resolutions and eye candy settings, however the majority of the other cards couldn’t handle it. Rest assured if you spent the money on the 9600 GSO you could quite comfortably game at a high resolution.
