Best card around the $200 price point? - Page 2

post #11 of 22
Wow I would like to see a link with a 560 ti at 200$ including shipping and taxes.

The lowest I have seen is 225-230 + shipping + taxes which is far from 200.

In my opinion these two choices are your best bet for your $200 budget.

SAPPHIRE Vapor-X 100314VXSR Radeon HD 6870 1GB

MSI N560GTX Twin Frozr II/OC GeForce GTX 560 (Fermi) 1GB

For single 1920x1080p monitor either will be a great choice and both over clock nicely.

Also one other option I like to offer:

EVGA 01G-P3-1460-KR GeForce GTX 560 (Fermi) 1GB

I'm partial to Sapphire for AMD and EVGA for Nvidia cards myself but it's strictly opinion.

You should post your in your bio from 'edit system' your computer specs. Also welcome to OCN! Good luck bud in your choice as you won't regret either and post back once you made your choice and let us know which way you went after you take the

gtx 470 is the best, but it's quite hard to find and buy...
so going to gtx 560 ti is also a good move..

ps: i'm not good with ATI card ,but i can assure you GTX 470 is a beast.

You decide.
I disagree due to the fact they trade blows back and forth between benchmarks pretty evenly. It's a very very marginal difference for either when one or the other wins.

The OP also has $200 budget. Find him either for less and post a link.

EVGA ended up RMA'ing me after all so :> Since I budgeted to buy another card in the $200 range, I decided to grab another GTX 560 Ti. A little over 200, but SLI with them should make me a happy camper. Thanks everyone for the suggestions and thanks to EVGA's support(Newegg wouldn't RMA because my box was cut for rebate, but I still had the cut out and they wouldn't accept it. EVGA was like whatever, we will get you a working card since yours is DOA). Word to wise, make sure your stuff works before you clip the box loll.

Honestly a 560 TI or 6950 1GB are just about equal, I'd say go with one of those depending on if you have a preference for AMD or Nvidia. Might be worth checking out some reviews to see how they perform in games that you play, as each one has some specific strengths and weaknesses.

As on option, you might want to eyeball a crossfire 6850 1GB setup for about $200 (after rebates and selling some free games that come with the cards). I recently picked up a XFX HD 6850 for $159 with FS from NewEgg - $30 rebate and came with Dirt3, Shogun 2 and STALKER:Call of Pripyat (sold for $25, $15 and $9). So after all is said and done, should get the card for about $80. Overclocked it to 950 core 1160 memory (up from 775/1000). Two of those bad boys together would tear up games for $200 if you do not mind the pain of rebates and selling the steam codes.
