Would like input on choosing GPU

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hi,

I've recently come to the conclusion that I really don't have much choice but to upgrade my Video card(s). Truthfully, I have a functioning budget of $0, but here's what I've found online...

GTS 450 for $89.99
GTX 550ti for $114.99
GTX 460 for $129.99

All are 1GB cards and sli ready for future (if it's worth it). Any input would be helpful. If there are other cards in this price range worth looking at I'd be interested in that info. too. Thx

The 460 is the fastest and probably the best bang for the buck in that - its hard to beat a 460 for $129.99

You could snatch 2 465s for pretty cheap right now, they are faster than 460s clock for clock.

Problem with EVGA is that most of them don't unlock, unlike the PNY where all black PCB ones unlock

Even if they dont unlock, like mine they are still faster than 460s.
