Retro Card for a Retro Build

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I'm looking to find a 2GB variant of and AMD card from 2009-2012 to go with my Retro build.
Taking my existing AMD Phenom x6 1055T, I'm going to be using 8GBs of Hyper X Fury and a MUCH newer ASRock 970A-G 3.1 to make a still viable gaming PC a a secondary backup PC to my newer rig.

Now, my issue is a video card.
I have a HD 5830 1GB, but it's performance and ram limitations make it severely lackluster at 1080p.
I see that the HD 7970 performs right on par with a RX 460, but, most HD 7970s I've found cost more than a RX 460, and that's silly.
And because of that, I'm looking for something from the HD 5970 to HD 7970 on AMD's side with REASONABLE pricing, mind you.

As much as I want a XFX HD 5970 Black Edition 4GB Limited P90, I won't spend $1100 on it.
Looking for anything with 2GBs of VRAM, and a good price to performance ratio.

I'd refrain from NVIDIA because I had a GTX 470, and 480, and yeah, heh, those things are lit af. xD

Nothing over $100, or very close to it, I mean. I'd rather by an RX 460 at that point.
