What is a good upgrade from a GTX 460?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I'm looking to upgrade from my 460, to a card with preferable 2gb of VRam. It seems that nowadays the 1gb versions don't cut it in modern gaming. I'll be using it if for some gaming on 1 monitor at 1080p, but also looking to Boinc whenever the system is idle.

What is a good deal for around 200-250? And what should I sell my 460 for?

a 7870 is the best at that price range.
and they also giving out 2 games with the card that are both 50$ each. Tomb raider and Bioshock

Buy an AMD 7950. It is well priced for what it does. Are you going to liquid cool? I personally would wait till next year.

At the ~$250 mark, you can get either a GTX 660 Ti ($261 AR) or a Radeon 7870 XT aka "Tahiti LE" ($235 AR).

the gtx 460 is still a beast. I wouldn't get anything less than a 7950 so you'll really feel you did an upgrade. you might probably get underwhelmed with something less imo

I'm in the same boat, think I'm going to wait it out for the 700 series, as im still able to play all the games out still.
