5850 Toxic 2g Step up

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey all,

I think its finally time up upgrade from my 5850 toxic 2g. What is the best Graphics card for just under 300, or less. I currently run 3 monitors (not on eyefinity) the main not running over 1080.

Any suggestions with warranted reasoning is welcome.

Thanks!

7950, no doubt about it. They overclock like monsters and the drivers are fine. All that "zomg amd drivers are terrible" is just recycled nonsense that sheep who are incapable of an original thought are accustomed to saying. 3gb of vram for future proofing purposes and you should be able to add another down the road if that floats your boat for nice and cheap. This one is at the top of your budget, but it comes with 3 free games and will be a huge step up from your 5850 Toxic. This is the exact one I would get.

HD 7950 without a doubt. massive upgrade from your HD 5850 Toxic. atleast twice the performance. the Gigabyte HD 7950 OC with the excellent windforce3x cooler is the one to get. you can easily overclock this card to 1.1 Ghz with voltage tweaking and match the HD 7970 Ghz. plus three awesome games for free. go go go. thumb.gif
