When can we expect more performance in $200-$300 price range?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I put my main question in the thread title. So to give some background on that, let me tell you what I mean. I bought my GTX 560 last summer and the 500 series from Nvidia was introduced earlier that year, early 2011. It's now close to summer and I will have some more money to upgrade my computer. The only problem is, the same graphics cards are sitting at nearly the same prices from a year ago. My main priority is it must have at least 2GB frame buffer and be under $300. I also want to keep my allegiance to the green team, Nvidia. The only few choices I get are a GTX 560 Ti with 2GB or GTX 570 with 1.25GB. 1.25GB just ain't future proof and going from a 560 to a 560 Ti is not really much of an upgrade. I am quite honestly appalled at the way the video card industry has been panning out this generation. Low yields, high performance and high price points to match. What about us normal computer enthusiasts without $500 to drop on a single video card? The prices are crazy and the GTX 670 will be $400. What about a GTX 660? How long til that comes out and please be under $300. $200 used to be the sweet spot for price/performance, then $250. Now I can't find anything worth buying under $300. Maybe if people would stop rushing out and buying the big stuff... the manufacturers would get the message...

The 470 is roughly 150 on the forums and on newegg the 480 can be had for 210 so value is there you just have to do a lot of research to be aware of them

GTX 660 Ti won't release until 5-6 months from now, and its MSRP will be $250. Since you already ruled out the GTX 570, that only leaves one other option in the price bracket you're looking at, the Radeon 7850.

You have a 1920x1200 monitor, what do you need a 2GB frame buffer for?
