Best Graphics Card for under 200 dollars?

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
I want to buy a really awesome card for less than 200 dollars. as you can see, I am an nvidia guy for many reason, so please nvidia cards only.

what is the best card for less than 200 dollars new? how about one used? how much more would i have to pay for a nice boost in performance?

i need some help here. my mobo supports PCIe 2.0 x16

I would shoot for a GTX560 Ti. They OC close to a 570 and have pretty good stock coolers from what I hear.

A little over 200 but its def worth it. If you set up a new newegg account today, you get $25 with the promo NEWTAX25. You may find it somewhere else for 200.

GTX 560

It really all depends how much you are willing to spend. The 560 is a really nice bang for your buck right now. If you have some extra money I would go for a 6950 and unlock it to a 6970.

Yes you said you dont want ati but this card right now is the best deal you can get once you get it unlocked.

evga b stock has gtx 460 768's at 100 each. SLI that and there you go. If you don't want to go SLI, I would pay a bit more and get a 2nd hand 480 in the low to mid 200's. If you're still not happy with that idea get a 560. open box on newegg you can get em for $180
