Upgrade 9800GTX

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
What would be a decent upgrade that is CHEAP for my 9800GTX? I can probably sell it for about $70 or so and maybe put $50 or $70 with that to buy a new card.

EDIT: I would really like to stick with Nvidia as ATI/AMD drivers aren't that good I hear.

Gtx460 1gb (non SE edition with full shaders) or better yet, a 6850.

How about a Galaxy 50SGH8HX3OMJ GeForce GTS 450 (Fermi) SuperOC from NewEgg for $120, or a HIS H577FK1GD Radeon HD 5770 (Juniper XT) 1GB for $130?

A GTX 460 768MB is in your price range. But if you're at 1920x1200, you might want to go for that 6850 for the 1GB ram.

But both cards have pretty close performance at that resolution as well.

my choice, can't go wrong with a 6850.
