Best price/performance GPU for 1680x1050 ?? - Page 2

post #11 of 22
Thread Starter 
The more I look at it, the more I'm liking the 560Ti option. Good price, awesome OCing potential..... Looks like it's close to 570 performance when OCed too. Think I made my decision. Rep + for the 560 suggestion

Here's a comparison between the 4870 (expect an 8-10% increase or so in FPS comparatively for the 4890) and the GTX 560 Ti. You can get this for ~$250 or so, and it looks like it runs nearly twice as fast. Seems like it's going to be more on your CPU to whether you'll get that much, but I think with your CPU you'll do just fine =)

This is 4870 vs 4890.

Gtx 460 would be the best price/performance upgrade but a gtx 560 would be a much better upgrade (if you can afford it)

Thanks for that comparison Pricedwi. I even plugged in a 460 vs 560 for good measure I really am trying to stay around $225-$250. Don't want to spend more than that though. At my resolution, it simply isn't worth the extra money. I don't really like gaming on a bigger screen. Plus, I can't really watch TV, movies or game on a bigger screen or I'll get headaches. Doctor said it's something to do with having switch my focus around or something. I'm not really sure, all I know is it sucks lol. Anyways, back on topic, I still think the 560 looks like the card to get at that price point and my resolution. Keep the input coming, it's helping me make a final decision
