Hello lads,
I'm planning to upgrade my 9800GT to a DirectX 11 GPU and i would like any suggestions for a descent gaming performance GPU at a price below 100$/pounds.
I had a look around but got confused.
I was looking at the GT 630 at a very good price but it's scores where not good.
Any suggestions are welcome.


The GTX 650 is exactly what i was looking for.
and the 100 pound price is just right.
Thank you all for your help and links :wahoo:

GT630 is a GPU with beyond terrible performance, as its performance is worse than a HD6570 from AMD, while being priced equal with the better HD6670. Under 100, you'd better get a HD7750/HD7770 instead.

A GTX650 Ti can be had around £100 and is your best option by far. It's miles faster than the GT630 or GT640 (honestly they're not even in the same league). Infact it's even 35-40% faster than a non-Ti GTX650, so you get a lot of performance for your money. Can handle Crysis 3 with ease at 1080p (but obviously not at max settings).

Your really going to have to say whether your talking in dollars or pounds, the current exchange rate has 100 pounds worth $152 USD.
If your looking to game, I say get no less then a HD7770, a 7750 if your really tight on budget.

I wasn't clear on currency either, but OP states dollars or pounds, so safe to assume British and uninformed about exchange rates :-)

I really need to get my eyes tested. manofchalk is right as if you are in UK a 650 ti will set you back about £125.00 which would put you over budget. A regular 650 comes in at under a £100 but one of the recommendations above may be a better choice depending on country etc

And this is why PC Part Picker is only good to an extent. Always search for your own deals :D .

Always do :-D price grabbers are good if you don't have the time, but they often miss good deals.
