Best GPU for $250?

I want to upgrade from my 7850. Which GPU would you guys recommend for around $250? It has to be compatible with my Asus B85M-E Motherboard though.

  1. Best answer
    GTX760 is currently the best. AMD is releasing new cards on Tuesday so hang on prices may change.
  2. Agreed.For you're budget.The GTX 760 is best bang per buck!
  3. EVGA 760 SC is an excellent card at 260 dollars!
  4. You guys really think so? I've herd that the 7950 sometimes goes as low as $250
  5. Would my 600 Watt PSU be enough for it?

    It's a little slower then a gtx 760 though.

    Depends on the make and model of your psu.

    It's a ThermalTake litepower
  9. Any decent enough 600 watt power supply can handle almost any single GPU system. A 760 or 7950 will be be fine on a 600 watt system.

    It should be o.k. that really isn't the most reliable psu just so you know.May not be able to put out full rated power above room temperature, and may slightly fail to meet ATX specs. Nevertheless it should work fine.
  11. Actually, I might consider the new R7 GPUs from AMD

    Yes. Than you for clarifying that. When I built my system I was slightly scared that 600 Watts would not suffice. But now, as you said, I'm definitely sure that 600 watts is adequate.
  13. What do you guys think of getting the R9 or R7 from AMD instead?
  14. An R9 280X would be a really good choice, will need to see benchmarks first.

    Yeap! For only $300 bucks, its a great card. Also, they say it preforms similar to a 7970 Ghz edition. They even have an article on it.
