Upgrade video card

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'm looking forward to upgrade my sweet old very much loved video card for a more recent one. I was looking at some listings. (I think you say it like that, for things like Craiglist or Kijiji)
I've found a used GTX 950 nearby priced at 90€ or a used GTX 960 for 120€ (but quite far so I even if I go pick it up by hand i should probably consider it's 1+ hour drive) both Strix versions.
Are they right prices?
I sadly can't find any GTX 750ti nearby frown.gif and only crazy prices for r9 270/270x. But plenty of GTX 650 and gtx 650ti boost. tongue.gif
Suggestions? Are they too powerful for my old i3 ?

I didn't even think about a new RX 460; on Amazon it's 150€ the 4gb version and 125€ the 2gb one. If I'm looking correctly at the benchmarks it should be in the GTX 950 performance range or maybe just slightly inferior.
I have to be honest and say it might end up as the smartest, and most power efficient, choice even if it means streching the budget a little bit . Thank you for your suggestion thumb.gif
