Upgrade Time! What to get? - Page 2

post #11 of 14
Really ... why you are telling him to buy 1 card around 350$ (570 or 6950) i dont see the point.First of all his motherboard doesnt support sli so i dont see any reason to buy 570 even if its OC model =580 stock.
His motherboard support CF and he want to spend 200-300.The best think to do is to buy 1 6870 now which is a powerfull card like 560ti and it's cost around 160-180$ and he can CF it very easy with another 160-180$ so we have 350-400$ max with more graphics than 560ti sli and any other 580 out there(even the 580 lightning)

I would suggest a HD6950 2GB. Several models now cost as low as around US$245-260, fitting your budget nicely.

This card has these advantages:-
a. As a single card, it is noticeably faster than your current GTX460

b. If you go for a large display (ie 32-42'' TV) to go with your current 24'' monitor to do dual-monitor setup, this card can handle it

c. If you go for two additional 24'' monitors to go with your current 24'' to do 3-monitor setup, this card supports Eyefinity

d. When you actually have Eyefinity, you have the upgrade path of adding a second HD6950 2GB to do crossfire

e. This card has the possibility of unlocking to a HD6970

f. This card does not need you to switch mobo as your mobo can do crossfire

This was the perfect advice. Thank you sir/ma'am!
