Best 1 GPU solution under 400 $

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
I know, I'm an idiot so don't bother telling me.

I have 2x HD 6670 Crossfire on my Asus P7P55D-E. I took one off to lend to my gf but the ******* PCI slot clip wouldn't let go the stupid card.

I got pissed and tore off the entire PCI-Express slot.

There were like a million little pins underneath. I tried aligning them back into the plastic slot back on its pins but there was literally impossible.

To make it worst, there was shorting because the pins would always touch and I couldn't get my PC to boot.

So basically I took some pliers and took off every little pin. Now the PC boot just fine but I can forget about Crossfire.


Soooooooooooooo... wbhat is the best 1 GPU solution out there? Keep it under 450$ please.

Also, I want to get a 27 inch screen to make me forget about this incident. Any suggestions? My budget for GPU and monitor is 850$.

That or a reference gtx 670 or a decent 7970.
I would choose the 7970 because you overclock it quite weel to 680 performance in games

I vote 7970
post #5 of 22

Theres the 680 and 7970 Ghz edition, however I don't think it's worth spending the extra $100 for either.

 

SAPPHIRE 100351SR Radeon HD 7970 3GB 384-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card OC with Boost

 

MSI N670GTX-PM2D2GD5/OC GeForce GTX 670 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

 

If you plan playing BF3, I'd say go with the 670, otherwise probably the 7970. I'd also look into power and heat. IIRC, the 670 does less of both.

Get a 7970. Maybe this.

You also get 3 games for free. For the monitor you can get one of those korean monitors like yamakasi catleap(27" with 2560 x 1440 resolution)

a 7970 or 7950 probly can find a used 7970 for 330-360 and they are killer cards run any game maxed out at 1080P.

Wow this forum is awesome! smile.gif

1 question though, would a single 7970 be better than my 6670 crossfire?
