Having a hard time deciding on a card for around ~$350

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Currently im only running a single GTX 285 (other one died..) so anything is a huge upgrade for me right now. Not looking to spend more than around $350 canadian

Current options ive found so far are

GTX 690 - $300
GTX 970 - $280
AMD 390x - $350
Found one GTX 980 for 385 but its sold already.


Was really hoping to get a 980 ti but i cant find one under 550

What would you guys recommend?

Forget the 690. afaik, it only has 2GB. Not enuf for such a powerful card.

i'm biased toward amd, so I recommend the 8GB 390X. But, I went to check the driver download page and I did not see Vista as supported OS.

I suggest to keep looking for newer cards like the RX 480 or GTX 1060.

Done. Easy. It comes down to if you like Nvidia or AMD. I'd go 970 just because of Nvidia.

Then again, I'd go for this instead IMO. It's under $550 CAD. http://www.ebay.ca/itm/EVGA-NVIDIA-GEFORCE-GTX-980TI-/131912179547?hash=item1eb6941f5b:g:~N0AAOSwMtxXtT3X

If you willing to do refurbished, I would keep an eye on EVGA's B-Stock page. I got my GTX980Ti for $330. I'm happy with it.

How much are rx 470, 480 and GTX 1060 in your area?
