best 1080p GPU for 200 including psu

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
ok so im looking to upgrade from my current card a 750 ti to something more powerful im open to new and used cards will most likely be sourcing the card from ebay my screen res is 1920x1080 and the 2 games i want to play right now are the witcher 3 and doom 4 would like to play maxed out at high settings on the new card if possible but im ok with medium to high

my budget is 200 dollars and that has to include a new power supply in the price because my 475 watt psu wont cut it

would prefer to stay with nvidia if possible so what are my options

475W is plenty for a single GPU system, the quality of the PSU is more of a concern though? Would be great is you could tell us the exact model.

If the PSU is good enough you could spend the full $200 on your GPU. If not you'll probably be spending around $60 on the PSU and around $140 on the GPU.

Any places where you would prefer to buy?

It looks to be a pretty decent PSU, made by Delta, I think it should be fine but @shilka might want to confirm my assumption.

As for the GPU, I would get a 3GB GTX 1060, the most affordable ones are 199-220 so it fits your budget.

780 or 780 Ti will use a lot of power. The GTX 1060 3GB card would be faster and use a lot less power.

I wouldn't buy any Nvidia Kepler cards anymore, the GTX 1060 is definitely a better choice. A second hand GTX 970 might be worth considering if you can find one say sub $150.

Newegg should be fine.

Because Nvidia drivers have notoriously poor support for older generations of cards, you're also not going to find any second hand 780Ti's for that much cheaper than a new GTX 1060.

Then there's the power consumption(like mad @Mad Pistol mentioned) which going to cost you more in the long run and put more strain on your PSU. Then there's also reliability, you have no way of knowing what the previous owner did with the card.

But if you insist in trying to find a second hand bargain, I'd try looking for a GTX 970.

if i buy a 1060 will it work with my current PSU i cant really upgrade to a better psu because my hp desktop uses proprietary psu parts that are wired differently then a standard atx psu

also as far as the 1060 goes 3 gigs or 6 gigs honestly in my eyes the 3gig version of the 1060 is cheaper which makes both me and the misses happy due to our low income limited funds status but ill consider a 6 gig if its a must
