Need help choosing budget GPU

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I'm not sure which one to get out of these.Here they are in order of preference:
1.http://www.ign.com/articles/2014/01/28/build-igns-custom-steambox-today
2.http://www.snapdeal.com/product/sapphire-hd-7850-2gb-gddr5/433645749
3.http://www.flipkart.com/zotac-nvidia-geforce-gtx660-2gb-2-gb-ddr5-graphics-card/p/itmddmmkmjdcbmqz?pid=GRCDDMMGFJYNGYGN&srno=b_30&ref=3810033d-4be4-4bf8-a19a-b322bc486329
I'm going to do gaming(@1600X900) and want to do some cryptomining as well.I chose the AMD cards as more preferable because the XFX one comes with BF4(which I wanna sell) on registration and Never Settle Forver Silver rewards,the Sapphire one comes with Silver NSF bundle as well.Which should I choose?I'm doubting the Sapphire can OC higher because of the dual X cooling and outperform the XFX.But that also comes with 2 fans so I don't know.My original budget was around Rs.12000 but with the 2 AMD cards,I can somewhat recover the extra cost by selling the free games.Also,if any other card is worth checking out,please do tell!
PS.I'll be checking this out in around 19 days(exam coming up) but I'll post any time I can!

The 7850 is a great card, good enough even for 1080p gaming. Also the 2GB of VRAM will help you mining coins.

However it is almost 2 years old, I would suggest trying to get a R9 270. Even though it is a rebranded version of the same card, it is slightly faster and closer to a 7870 while still only needing 1 6 pin.

There is also the 750 ti from the green side, same performace in gaming as the 7850 and while it is slightly slower mining, it uses a lot less power and doesn't need the extra 6 pin. Mining is all about power to hash ratio so consider how much you pay for power as well.

I would recommend either the R9 270 or the GTX 750 Ti. While the Ti is cheaper, new, and uses less power, the 270 will get you roughly 25% more performance. Either card will perform very well at 1080p.

Can I get any games with Nvidias?
I heard 750s are quite good for mining energy consumption and cost wise.

I don't think the 750Ti has any game bundles.
post #8 of 11
I would go with the r9 270.it only will include BF4(if xfx says it)

And the double D is a good heatsink but in amazon they are a bit overpriced.with the r9`s price on amazon you get a 760gtx which is 8-10fps better

Its very overpriced here in India as well.And I may not have a choice.I may have to limit power consumption.I can get the dual fan version of a Zotac 750Ti at a good price.Now I'm slightly leaning towards the Nvidia.As for mining,both AMD cards and the 750 are quite good,but in different ways.Just check out the thread ''750Ti mining''.I'll only be playing at 1600X900,so I think the 750Ti would be enough with a little OC.What I don't know is whether the Zotac dualfan version has a 6-pin power connector.
