$20-$30 GPU

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
I'm resurrecting an old rig for fun, Core2Duo to Core2Quad, and 8GBs of DDR2.
I'd like to find an old, used GFX card from the DX11 generantion, so GTX 400 or HD 5xxx series for between $20-$30 bucks.
But no less than a GTS 450, i think it was or a HD 5650, I -think- it was.
These are 6 year old cards, should be able to find one used pretty cheap.
It's gonna be used for older games, and emulation.

Any help is severely appreciated!

PCIE 2.0, 8x I think.
And a GTS450 doesnr sound too bad.
I found a local trying to sell a GTX 580 for $75.
I'm trying to bring him down to $30 lol
Because a 1050ti is as fast, and faster in some cases than a GTX 680, amusingly enough.
I'll know more tomorrow!

$75 is too much for a 580, make sure to bring him down to at least 50$

Just look for whatever somewhat capable 2nd hand GPU and lowball the seller. Some of them are just trying to get rid of their "junk" while still making a buck.

Okay, so yeah. I did measurements and it will only fit a low profile gpu, like a GT 730 or HD 6450
