Best $150> Card - Page 5

post #41 of 52
I know there has been some eyes being rolled at the GTX 560SE but it's a great card for the money. If used, open box, or refurb are included in your choice or if power usage is a concern than you might not be happy with it, but for a new card with a 3 year warranty it's a great card. I got mine for $129 shipped on Amazon.

I can break 1000Mhz on the core with a bump in voltage and I have the CPU at a modest OC but so far so good.

bench performance can be a ref, but nothing like a bench* from the game (metro 2033, Crysis, Crysis 2, BF3)*Ultra/High

An overclocked 470 will be better in the above mentioned games, more Vram, and high tesselation performance..

If I owned any of them, I might have used them.

After all the responses - what are you going with?
I dont know a lot about the AMD side of things but know the 460 or 560 will be good for you. If you have any Microcenters around you, they have incredible deals running sometimes.

460, and I have a Micro Center near me. I'm not sure, but I may even buy my whole new system there.

GTX 460s are more on par w/ 6850s. You can get 6870s for $150 now after rebate, on sale, or even less if you're buying used.
