    Best Bang for $ Graphics card for 1080/1440 Video

    I have a Hero3 recording at 1080/60fps or 1440/30fps. When I try to play back on my PC running an ATI GS9300 onto a 1280-1024 LCD, Q6600 CPU, Intel G41 Mobo, 8gb 1333 RAM, WD Blue 1TB I get stutttttteeeeeeerrrrrrrrr.

    I have order a QHD LED 2560x1440 which arrives today, so what will be the best Sub $200 graphics card to match this setup and stop the stutter?

    The Nvidia gtx 660 is the best sub $200 card for gaming you can get for 2560x1440, but you might be able to find cheaper just for HD video playback.

    ATI 9300? Is this an old AGP card? If so pretty much anything should play back your video. The gtx 630 should be fine.

    Until recently I hadn't seen any GTX660 cards under $200. After rebate and instant discount, ASUS GTX660 at Newegg is probably the cheapest right now. Zotac and MSI also have sub $200 cards at Amazon.

    Without rebate, the HD7850 is probably the best bang for your buck on the AMD side. Though I have seen the HD7870 occasionally under $200 after rebate.

    Thank you all for the feedback, looks like I will go for a GT630 with 2GB of memory for around $90.
