Graphics Upgrade

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Made an old thread about this but I went ahead and refunded my R7 260X and now I have a budget of $180 Paypal only.

What should I get?

Specs;

Was thinking a 750 TI

I'd prefer a NVIDIA card and my range is about $180 or so.

750TI would be a good bet for a new card.
But if you're ok with an older gen card you could get a used 480 or 570 which would be a decent bit stronger and even cheaper. Though if you do that id do the 480, vram is a bit low for todays standards but 1.5gb should do you. You could even almost do 2 480s in SLI within $180, provided your psu could support it (800w or so for SLI).

If you are willing to go for a used card, you should be able to snag a 660ti, or maybe a 760 if you are willing to up your budget a little. Both will comfortably outperform the 750ti on everything but power consumption.

This is what I'm debating on getting right now.

That EVGA has reports of loud fan profile (EVGA dropped the ball on GTX 750 Ti cooling).

You're better off with a Gigabyte (HDMIx2 = 4K resolution @60Hz), Zotac dual fan one , or Galaxy GC. If you can put up with lack of G-sync (displayport) and a VGA connector then you can get MSI/ASUS also.

This is how I would value the performance of cards in the sub $250 bracket (fastest to slowest):
GTX 760 <--- ~$230-240 , $250 MSRP
R9 270X <--- ~$220-250 , even though $200 MSRP
R9 270 <-- ~$200-210 , $180 MSRP
GTX 660 <--- ~$180
R7 265 (HD7850) <-- $150 MSRP
GTX 650 ti Boost 2GB <-- $150 MSRP
GTX 750 Ti <-- $150 MSRP
GTX 750 <-- $130 MSRP
R7 260X (HD7790) <-- $120 MSRP
R7 260 <-- $110 MSRP
