GPU Upgrade

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
So Since upgrading my computer, the only thing I haven't yet upgraded is my GPU, currently I have a ATI HD 2600 XT, but my friend mentioned its basically bottlenecking my CPU, so I need to find an upgrade problem is I'm not exactly rolling is money right now so I'm at a budget.

My budget right now is £70 so any advice and help towards finding an upgrade would be of much help.

I dont know many UK sites so I'll just throw out some gpus that should be in that range. Some good options that should be under £70 are gts 250, 9800gt, 4850, 5750, and maybe a 5770.

moonpig has a VTX 5770 for £60, take a look

try and sell your 2600XT after you buy one, to recover some cost

I would go with either a second hand geforce 460 or Ati 5850 they should be at around 70-80 pounds. wink.gif

If willing, GIGABYTE 5870 is a nice choice, some sold that only $200
Of course 6950 is another nice one to go for.
