Need a new Card advice wanted

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Okay well I had an old XFX HD 5830 and last night it finally died on me. I am trying to look for something with equivalent or more power and relatively cheap around the 100-150 dollar range.

I've searched newegg and tiger direct and i am just not sure what to get, which is why ive come for advice here, anything you can suggest would be appreciated thanks.

A friend of mine was just in a similar situation and ended up getting a Radeon 7850 2GB for $160 after rebate from NCIX. He also did a lot of research and decided that a 2GB model was preferable for him so he waited for the right deal on a 7850. It should be faster than your 5830. Tom's Hardware had the Nvidia 650ti at $146 and then the 7850 (1GB and 2GB models) in their last "best cards for the money" for whatever that's worth. thumb.gif
