Selling my 670.. Need a CHEAP temp card! .. Stat..

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
So I am in the process of selling my 670FTW waterblock and shortly after my 670FTW.. Planning on selling it now before the 800 Series rumors start and the card is even worth less..

Planning a possible Microcenter run this weekend and I need a cheap cheap card to hold me over until the 800 Series launches..

Looking for something that can play War Thunder and the Star Citizen dog fighter module (out in December)..
Something that I can keep around as a spare, but not blow too much money on now since its a temp..

Really not looking to spend too much.. Id would hate to spend more on the temp card than the price drop of a used 670 after the 800 series is release if you get what I mean.

I guess even a used card from out market place wouldnt hurt.. If anyone wanted to "suggest" one thats on there for a good price.. Update: Check our market most people are selling old cards for the same price I can walk into Microcenter and buy a new one for.. So thats a no go..

Not sure if these card will really work for me.. but MC has..
GTX550 TI for $71 then $20MIR
GT 610 for like $50
GT 630 for $80
They also have Radeon 6400 series and 6600 series for around that price..
Not sure if its even worth it..

Help is much appreciated!

Why not drop some cash on a second hand card, such as a 460?. There are plenty on ebay and within your 550Ti budget and they are much faster than a 550Ti.

550Ti Vs 460

But if you want new, by all means the 550Ti will hold you out on low - medium settings for modern games smile.gif

Check craigslist, 460s/68xx cards are easy to find under $100. Hell, I was planning on selling my 6850s for $70 each, and that would beat the snot out of a GT 630 (which probably isn't worth the money).

Sometimes 470s/480s or 5850s go on sale for less than $100. If I were you, I'd hold out for that.

Theres an OCN member selling a 470 with a heatkiller water block on it for $95 is that a good deal?

I think they may be alil too much as a hold me over card for 6 months...

I would grab that 470 in honesty. Plenty of grunt in those older fermi cards and a bonus having the WB on.

This will allow you to game comfortably (not on max settings) till Maxwell is released and possibly hold out for AMD to release their 20nm variant smile.gif

And a handy back up should you need it. Sadly my spare is an 8800GT, so not much of a replacement but it is always handy for inbetweenies smile.gif
