    Default Yet another gfx card question ($200.00)

    My 750 Ti is not cutting it anymore in games like Dirt Rally and Project cars.
    I have an older cpu (i5 Sandy Bridge o.clocked on air,16 gigs or ram) so I know it's a bit of a bottleneck..

    Need a good v.card recommendation @$200.00 (links are cool too).
    I prefer Nvidia cards ...but it's not a must have if there is a better choice.


    I game in 1080p at 60 htz (Samsung px2370) if it matters.


    Thanks in advance.

    I love to answer these questions.
    R9 280X. I will prefer you get this card from XFX or MSI.
    XFX: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00FSC5N66/..._t1_B00J44WVYG

    MSI: http://www.amazon.com/MSI-R9-380-2GD...eywords=r9+280

    Second option I would go with GTX 960SC. I would only get this card from EVGA for the best performance.
    http://www.amazon.com/EVGA-GeForce-Whisper-Graphics-02G-P4-2966-KR/dp/B00SC6HAS4/ref=sr_1_fkmr1_1?s=pc&ie=UTF8&qid=1453096212&sr=1-1-fkmr1&keywords=evga+gtx+860

    Hopefully I helped you out!

    I have a MSI 980, I've had for almost 2 months now, I have to say I love it, I haven't had any problems I can run any game in max-ultra settings, The only problem is are you willing to drop about almost 500 on one.

    I have an MSI 970 and I can pretty much do the same as MiiG however, you either have it as 1080p and low anti-analyzing or high anti-analyzing and like 720p.
    Otherwise, I run Siege on max-ultra, 1080p.


    EDIT: It plays other games on ultra too such as H1Z1 and DayZ. Just using siege as an example.

    I would highly recommend waiting, the reason being is that when the pascal architecture drops later this year the last generation cards should reduce in price. That would be the best time to get the best bang for your buck.

    Certainly. As I'm only 16, my minimal wage is 3.87 (5.527 USD) an hour. If I got a bit more dosh the 980 is the way too go.

    Considering your main game is Project Cars, I would stick with NVIDIA.

    Benchmarks:

    At your current budget I would recommend this card (GTX960):

    Great thinking! I didn't consider looking up any statistics on graphics card for that game. That graphics card you picked out will definitely run perfectly!

    Might check buying a used 970. I've bought two GTX cards from ebay and both were in great condition.

    Good thinking Blob, and on a side note I could go for some Winston bagels right about now.
