Thinking of upgrading GPU. Opinions / Suggestions needed

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
As the title says, I'm thinking of updating my pretty outdated EAH4670.

Specs in Sig rig

- I'm only planning on going with x1 GPU, so no Xfire or SLI.
- I'm using the PSU in the sig rig. // Rosewill 430w Green series.
- I don't do any video editing / rendering. I don't watch videos or use this as an HTPC.
- Gaming is a must.
- 16:9 Resolution.
- Brand doesn't matter. ATI / NVIDIA either one works.
- Budget wise, I'd like to keep it around the $100 mark +/- $50

That power supply is going to be an issue. Most current generation low-end cards specify a minimum PSU of 500W. And I don't think I would push that too much. You might look at picking up an older 6850 or a 460 from the OCN marketplace.

Thanks wink.gif

I figured I'd more than likely go with an slightly older GPU, but at the same time I don't want just a minor upgrade from the 4670. Something that's gonna make a noticeable difference at least.

BUMP

Now I NEED a new GPU. The 4670 still works, but its really slowing down the entire system.

A GTX460 or better from the Nvidia camp, or one of the 69x0 people are selling to go 7970 would do you perfectly.

Would a 560 be safe on my PSU?
