Honestly for that much you really ought to be able to bag a GTX 580, with more RAM and usefully quicker by default. Btw, in terms of power consumption and heat, I found the GTX 750 Ti to be often about the same speed or just a bit less than a 580, but I suspect a 750 Ti would not be as cheap as a 570 or 580, though it would certainly be kinder on your energy bill and thus might be a better investment if you planned on using it for a while (much quieter too).

The thing is I am buying it from a co-worker, if its not fully functional I don’t have to pay and yeah 750 ti’s aren’t that cheap and my budget is no higher than $50 unfortunately (its all I have to spend at the moment) i’d love to get my hands on a 580 but cheapest I have seen for one is like $120.

-edit: Okay so the 570 is a no go, it crashes when I run any stress test on it at stock setting so I am to assume that the GPU is dying, increased my budget a bit and have a GTX 660 on the way. Anyway thanks for the help, really appreciate it.

Motherboards I’ve killed: Sabertooth Z77, AsRock G41-C R2.0, MSI Z97 Gaming 5, ASUS Z97A, EVGA 790i SLI Ultra.
