The cheapest card can max Crysis 2 at 1080?

post #1 of 21

Hi guys,

I need some help to choose a video card for a Intel P67 budge system. I have been a nvidia owner, so I know little about ATI cards. So, I guess I need some advice from here. Thanks in advance!

My object is to max crysis 2 at 1080. Is that possible for a budge system?

You can get a gtx460 for like $100 (used) thats probably the best bang for the buck solution atm.

Maybe GTX 560 or GTX 470, both around $250

I prefer 560 better, which has lower temperature.

I'm getting avg 77 fps with my sig rig at max. Maybe you could use it as a reference.

In all honesty I think you could probably get away with an OC 460 at that res. 560 is a little safer, but it's only 10-15% faster clock for clock than a 460.

If budget is a big issue, pick up a used MSI 460 imo. Their warranties go by serial number so there's no issues should you need to RMA and they come with great coolers for OCing (TF2 or Cyclone).

560 ti is THAT much better than a460 gtx

10-15% better clock for clock AND ~180mhz faster?

if u can get a 560 for 50 bucks more, which is average, i would recommend the 560 according to that dude's remark.
