Its time to get another one (6870 RIP) !

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, i have been with my 6870 for a long while but now ,its very annoying to say that it has all been messed up. It all started a day or a two ago when my computer screen started to flicker . Initially i didn't took it seriously but it started to annoy me as it persisted to occur but now at regular intervals of time . The problem got worst yesterday with much more flickering than ever before . But today the pc booted up without any display . I continued this process but the result was same No Display . As there was no BSOD's during the flickering of display i thought it be some sort of graphics problem. So i immediately snapped my 6870 out and replaced it with my old GT 240 just to make it sure that the problem was with the graphics card and not with any other component . I again booted the pc up but this time it got booted up with DISPLAY . So i finally reached to a conclusion that this 6870 is no more alive (RIP). My apologies if this story made ya'll bored.
Any ways please suggest me a new graphics (budget < $250 . Max $300) under this range of my budget and best suited with my config.
P.s. - i wanted the best bf4 experience and resolution 1080p. thumb.gifsmile.gif

An R9 280x or 7970 are the sweet spot at that price point. Enough Vram that can be fully utilized to be future proof and overclock really good.
