Help needed deciding on new gpu

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'm currently in need of a new graphics card because my current 4850 has gone bad, so i need some help in deciding which one to get. My budget is about $200. What is the best card can i get for around this price? I've been looking at a hd 6870 or a gtx 560/560ti or maybe some thing else but not sure which would be best for my budget which i can increase it a little if needed. My monitor has a resolution of 1280*1024 but i want to get a 1080p monitor early next year when i have more cash. Any suggestions? Thanks.

at your current res I think a 560 or 6870 would be overkill. I would pick up a cheapo gt 430 or hd 4350 for ~$30 to hold you over. they should handle almost any game fine at such a low res. When you upgrade your monitor to 1080p, the next gen cards should be out which will give you a much better selections
