what would do for 1080p

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Just in case my single remaining 7950 breaks anytime soon and I needed a hold over, what cards can handle 1080p gaming at med. settings and good frame-rate these days?

I'm just thinking some older 2nd hand card, or like a gtx760 or 7850 (are they around the same performance?) , never checked prices in ages and I'm not familiar with the 7xx or newest Rx AMD cards

my old gtx 460 1gb can do pretty much any game on medium 1080p. Those run 2nd hand in the $45 range.

Umm no... The GTX 760 is significantly better than a 7850 and is comparable to a 7950 if not more powerful. Sounds too me like you want a 750 or 750ti which can game at 1080p high settings 60 fps on a large amount of games.

This is true, gave my other Hawk for a friend to borrow till he gets enough cash for a 770 and its doing him good on everything we play at medium-high, no AA and no v-sync.

yup it can even do high/med bf4 no AA surprisingly smooth 45-50fps. with the used prices so low it makes a great backup.

Hd 7850/r7 265 is better than the 750ti.no poont in comparison and yes it`s good for 1080p if it has 2gb

what does a 6950/70 2GB compare with these days?

Then again my i7 had iGPU, so if I resorted to ancient video games, I could try to ride out the hell of no big GPU, save up, but that really depends on money...being poor sucks

I use a 7870Ghz for 1080P gaming and I can push High to ultra, so anything just below that should be fine. My Brother uses a 6870 at 1080P med. settings.

GTX 550 Ti is perfectly capable of playing tons of games at 1080p at over 100FPS on medium-high settings with 4x MSAA and 8x Anisotropic Filtering.

I originally purchased mine when I had my 1280x1024 monitor, and I expected to need an upgrade when I went to 1080p but it's handled the load more than well enough for me to not care to upgrade yet. I think I'll finally upgrade when I get a 2160p monitor, or depending on a few things I might just decide to go 5760x1080 Triple monitor... but when either of those happen I'll have to upgrade.

Here are some screenshots of WoW running at 5760x1080 and 3840x2160, with AA on and AA off.

Let me know if you want some more with other games.
