What is a low budget and good gaming GPU? - Page 2

post #11 of 22
I'm not sure how serious you are being with the last bit, but for a GPU under $200 the HD 7850 would suit him nicely. Should be able to play anything you can throw at it at 1440x900 thumb.gif

You will definitely need a new PSU, though. AMD recommend a 500W for the HD 7850, sure you would be able to get away with a 400-450W though, if that.

Alternatively, if you're looking to get something a bit cheaper than the 7850 you could look at a 7770, 650Ti or a used 6850/6870 or 560Ti.

Not really... That would be WAY overkill at his resolution. A 7770 is way more suited for his needs.

7850's are generally used for 1080p gaming.

Well, when I said "suit him nicely" I meant max out everything tongue.gif

It kind of depends how much you want to spend, I guess from the sounds of it it's possibly not worth getting something like the 7850, and would be better to save the money or spend it on another upgrade. Do you want to spend under $200 on the whole upgrade, or just on the GPU? If on the whole upgrade, I'd be inclined to recommend a 7770 and a new PSU, then if you want to spend the entire budget decide between picking up some RAM or an SSD.

I'll admit, I was saying that because you'd suggested it in the first place tongue.gif

There's no doubt that an SSD is hugely faster than a hard drive. But if the OP's brother is the sort of person who never switches their computer off and mostly leaves it sitting there with the same programs open all the time, I'm not sure it would be the best upgrade. Depends a little bit on how you use your PC.

Well, he has this type of attitude that he alway say "I know" "Okay" "Let me finish this", and etc whenever we (Our parent and I) tell him to do something like bath, dinner, sleeping and etc.
This is why I don't want a powerful GPU for him, or he'll grow in worse.

Having a GPU more powerful than a GTX560Ti will not make ANY difference in any way, shape or form. All of the same games can be played just with higher settings, if this person is addicted to gaming then buying him a weaker graphics cards really isn't going to solve the issue.

Blow up his computer when he isn't around and make it look like an accident. Thank me later.

Setup a button to kill the power to his room/PC then see if he cooperates.

I don't know if you guys remember that old cartoon named Dexter from Cartoon Network but his sister DD... "If you don't make me food I'll press the BIG RED BUUUUTTON!" "NOOOOOOOO DON'T PRESS THE BUTTON!!!!"

boom

the end + cooperation = sandwich win/win

Edit : OT though, 7770 or a 7850. Would pair up nicely.
