Fastest card for about $100 Canadian (Sort of solved)

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I need the fastest card for about $100 ($120 max), would prefer if it included tax (12% where we live) and shipping but not necessary. I would however like to not have any mail in rebates due to us never receiving them (still waiting on my rebate from AsRock and OCZ and Logitech). I dont care if its old tech, new tech, gross tech, all it needs to be is good to play games ie: Simcity 5, Mass Effect 3 on decent settings (currently playing on low, very terrible). Its for my parents, my dad is a tech guy but isn't that great at finding deals. Please help!
REMEMBER THIS IS IN CANADA!

*EDIT* I would look into it further, but I dont have time
How about this 7770 http://www.ncix.com/products/?sku=74323&vpn=AX7770%201GBD5-DH&manufacture=PowerColor&promoid=1293

I'd go for a HD7750, I don't know what PSU you have on your father's PC
2GB GDDR3 (60CAD after 10MIR) http://www.canadacomputers.com/product_info.php?cPath=43_557_558&item_id=056200
1GB (100CAD) http://www.memoryexpress.com/Products/MX38392
2GB (110CAD) http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814125453
Fanless http://www.memoryexpress.com/Products/MX40353
98CAD Gigabyte HD7750 http://www.bestdirect.ca/products/241013/GV-R775OC-1GI/Gigabyte/

If you just want the fastest thing under $100, probably the GTX 560 / HD 6850 or GXT 650 if you want something more recent
110CAD (before 10CAD MIR) EVGA GTX 650 http://www.memoryexpress.com/Products/MX41585
95CAD (20 CAD MIR) MSI GTX 650 http://www.ncix.ca/products/?sku=79128&vpn=N650-MD1GD5%2FOC&manufacture=MSI%2FMicroStar

The card you linked has a 30CAD rebate eek.gif
If you can deal with it, $105 after $20 MIR Gigabyte HD 7770 http://www.ncix.ca/products/?sku=74900&vpn=GV-R777OC-1GD%20Rev2.0&manufacture=Gigabyte&promoid=1293

I will edit this if I find anything more, but those are just ones at first glance

I would go with the 7750 (100 + 12 shipping on Newegg.ca; 105 + tax at Canada Computers)

Thanks guys for the quick answers, he has a 1000W Sparkle. We acquired it when we took the PC in due to us not being able to figure out what was wrong with it, turns out it was a dead psu, it was all the store had and we needed it so there it is.

He decided to wait and purchase one closer to easter when the easter sales go on, and probably spend about $200. Should be able to get him into a 7870XT for that much, or even just a 7870. Thanks guys!
