GTX 580 Dieing slowly, need new card soon to replace it.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
As the title says, my poor GTX 580 has just simply burned out, the GPU is slowly dieing, I need a new card... The issue is I have some budget issues that while not firm are prefered and with the graphics pricing these days I don't think I will get a steal like I did two years ago with a brand new 80 card for $350. My budget is $350 but I can't decide what is best, I do do some rather heavy 3D modeling that is double precision but not in CUDA, I play planetside 2 with GPU physix on and would prefer to be able to continue using physix but don't need to, any sugestions from those of you who have kept up on the GPU market better than I have?

Nvidia's gpu's just went down in price. At your price range I think you could use a 770 smile.gif

spend a bit more and get the R9 290. for USD 50 - 70 more the performance improvement by going with a R9 290 is phenomenal. 25% faster than GTX 770 / HD 7970 . by late nov / early dec custom cooler versions of R9 290 like the asus dcii top should be out.
