What is the best graphics card I can get for $170? - Page 4

post #31 of 37
Flat out probably a 6850 with some dough to spare.

Or you can try to haggle and find a deal on a GTX 560/6870. Or you can spend the next week hitting F5 for open box deals.

When do these open box deals usually pop up?
post #33 of 37
You can get a 6870 for around $170 (even less) when eWiz offers $10-15 promo codes, usually about once a month (keep an eye out for 'em here)
Plus if you get one with a rebate it will be even less; I got mine for about $153 after all was said and done.

Of course you could use the promos/rebate for another card too, but given the price range it's a really good buy.
I was up in the air between a 560Ti and the 6870 and decided it was a better bang for the buck, but that's just my 2cents.gif

Where can I find one though. A used 560.

Thanks everybody for your support so far.
I was looking at some marks and I kinda want to get a 560 or 6870. I think it will be better for me in the long run. So I can hang on to a 6870 or 560 for two years. Then by then if needed make an upgrade.
