Upgrading my GPU

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey Guy's i recently i upgraded my system to a sandy bridge upgrade for 250bucks for a whole system, i need a GPU upgrade " i have a GTS 450 ".


This is my first time getting a AMD card it's XFX 6870 1GB i got it for a price of 125bucks been used for 3 Day's and 1 year warranty, in Kuwait they sell that card for about 250-280 dollar, and online stie's such as newegg and amazon for 160-180


and if i want to buy anything online from a US or UK website i must pay to ship it to Kuwait for about 30-60bucks to get it to kuwait



what do u think of this upgrade ?

gts 450 i roughly a 5770, so you got yourself a pretty good upgrade imo, who know you can get another 6870 l8r on to xfire them.
I am froma place where prices are silly so i understand what you mean.

I really dont know about the 5670 but i did own 2X5770 for over a year and they really gave me a good gaming for the money, never had driver pbms or resolutiion or anything.
And yes the 6870 is a very decent card you should have no problem with it.

As far as 6870 vs 560ti its pretty close, have a look at this
