I'm still using the GTX 260. It's old as $#@!. I'm not willing to spend more than 300 on a card either. Any ideas on what I should get? My specs are in the sig at the bottom.
Results 1 to 23 of 23
Thinking about getting a new video card.Intel Core i7 920 @ 3.8GHz | Nvidia 970 GTX | 6 GB Corsair Xms 1333 Mhz | 1 TB Seagate HDD | 250 GB WD HDD | Windows 7 Ultimate |
For 300 you can get a AMD 7950 or a Nvidia 660
192 bits in the 660 cause it to struggle with high anti aliasing on large resolutions 1080p and above.

GTX660ti or a ati 7950. You can get either in your $300 price range right now (actually slightly under with MIR)
The 660ti will struggle with AA a little bit at higher resolutions like mentioned already, but don't know what res you're playing at. The 7950 should run just about everything fine with AA turned up. Plus both cards come with free games (660 with ASSCREED 3 I believe and the 7950 with a 3in1 voucher for sleepings, far cry3 and some other stuff...)
Personally I'd go with the 7950: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814202006
That's just me though.
660ti which is mid range card is just as fast if not faster in some games than the 580. Not by much.
ti makes the difference.
If the 580 is second hand and half price of the 660ti or 7950 then go for it.

The 7950 boost edition can do the job for sure.
Gonna plug my card because I've had nothing but a positive experience with it. Most games played on High settings. Far Cry 3 being the most recent with a mix of High/Ultra. (I've got an i3 2120 and 8GB Ram)
DirectX 11 capable. 150 after rebate. Obviously, if you want to spend 300, the 7950 would be the way to go. Methinks an i7 was a bit much if you were going for gaming power. Could have used that money for the GPU.

Here you go this is what I got & it can run any game with ease & it can be easily Overclocked even more (I have mine on 950Mhz Core 1800/2000 clocks) & is a DX11 card
Looks like I'll be going with the 660. Thanks for the suggestions.
And a 680 is better than that.
Heres a PNY Card for only $279 after rebate ,That still offers a Lifetime Warranty apparently
Got the 660ti. Massive improvement. Again, thanks for the help dudes.
It was 279.
