Thanks. I'll see about selling both. Otherwise I'll just hang on to what I currently have.

Well, maybe not. Looks like I'd be lucky to get $100 out of both (ebay prices). Not sure that would go too far in buying a true upgrade video card. Guess I'll just stick with the Radeon for now and maybe save up and upgrade later. Been wanting to upgrade the whole computer sometime soon anyways.

You can get better card for 100-130$ and see big difference or if you catch discount you can buy it lower than 100$ check for 7790, if you are going to upgrade whole system soon than just sell that 275 and add that money for whole upgrade.

Looks like the 275 is only selling for around $30-40. I guess better than nothing. That's ebay anyways. I'll look into the 7790. I didn't realize I could make a big improvement for only around $100 but I guess that makes sense. I'd be replacing old tech with not as old but still older tech, which is fine with me. I'm not playing any games that take a huge amount of computing power to run so it's not too big a deal to kinda run a little behind the times in order to stay with a lower budget. I kinda do the same with photography stuff.

You need or not you will get better card and see big difference sell both and look for 7790 new or used your cards are very old and they can die anytime.
