Upgrade from a ATI 5870 to??

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi guys,

I have a ATI Radeon 5870 (1GB), and I would like to replace it with something a bit newer.

The replacement needs to be a nVidia card, due to FSX, which prefers this.

The spec of PC is i7-930, 8GB RAM (1066Mhz). I will be replacing the RAM soon with some faster RAM. Overclocking the i7 will come at a later stage, as I will need to purchase some new cooling for it too.

But first, I want to replace the graphics card.

Budget is around £150 GBP; I am hoping that I should be able to find something! (Approx $240 USD).

Look forward to hearing from you.

Thanks guys,

Not sure about the prices in UK but seems like GTX 660's start from 145+VAT mark, if you can find a deal somewhere that would be the card to get. GTX 570+ performance with much better power efficiency and more vram, plus the 6 series features.

As an Alternative you can get an used GTX 580 that still has warranty, for around 150 aswell.
