Need help: Want to upgrade card

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
My friend has as a core i5 3570k, 8gb ram 2000mhz. He wants to upgrade his video card. He wants his fps above 300fps with ultra setting and 1920x1080 while playing Counterstrike-Global Offensive. Which video cards can meet these requirement?

Thanks in advance for any responses!

Titan Quad SLI, probably need a new motherboard

4x GTX Titan - 4x $1000
1x Asus Rampage IV Extreme - $415

Total = $4415 + Shipping+Tax

haha in that case a lot of cards will do that i think. I am not 100% familiar with the game however, I know it runs on simliar specs of other source games e.g. Left 4 dead

Even a GTX470 will give you 60+ frames maxed at 1080p.

Looking at : http://www.anandtech.com/show/2977/nvidia-s-geforce-gtx-480-and-gtx-470-6-months-late-was-it-worth-the-wait-/13

a GTX 470 will give you 110fps at 1080p maxed. So i'd say the best option is pick up a used GTX460 off ebay for $50. If you want something new then get a HD7770 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814121632&nm_mc=AFC-C8Junction&cm_mmc=AFC-C8Junction-_-na-_-na-_-na&cm_sp=&AID=10446076&PID=3938566&SID= for $70

Also, for both cards make sure he has a average 500w or a quality 400w.
