Looking for a new graphics card for $200

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
So by pure miracle i managed to sell my 5850 for $175, and since i have a low paying ingles job, i was wandering what kind of graphics card should i get?

I'm really interested in kelper, but i think i would get something like the 660 or the 655 (if those even exist).
I've also been seeing gtx 480's on here for around $200 dollars or so.

I really don't want to spend more than $250, would like to spend $200-210 as i am saving up for a car.

thanks

GTX 560 Ti.

Or if you can grab a GTX 560 Ti 2Win (dual 560s on a single card) at newegg for $260 refurb that would be the best bang for the buck, especially since you have a 1080p monitor.

560 2win (OOS) I grabbed one of these, and its quite a beast for the price @ 1080p. Close to GTX 680 performance.

But a regular 560 or 560Ti would work just fine.

^^^ That or he could get a used 570 for around that price as well.

You can get a new 570 for around 250 now with the price drops as well. The 560ti 448core sells for around that pricepoint as well so a lot of options thumb.gif

I say 480 as well, assuming your fine with having a card that sucks a lot of power.

I just got my GTX 480 and love it, other than the fact that it heats up like a beast which makes the fan super loud- but after the Antec 620 Kuhler all is well rolleyes.gif
