Looking to buy new Video card

I made a mistake of ordering some cards a while back that yall helped me decide was a bad idea. I ended up buy a Radeon 6870 HD that was a heck of a good deal at the time, and a new power supply.

I'm looking to upgrade a few things on my system, I'm looking for a good solid budget graphics card preferably Nvidia, but will run ATI again. Probably under 300$

Any ideas?

  2. GTX 760 or GTX 770
    GTX 760 is more than 2x faster than HD 6870
  3. What are the system specs?
  4. if u want NVIDIA, u can buy GTX760 but if want ATI, u can buy R9 270x

    that benchmark is the 2GB card ^^
    i find it funny people always link benchmarks when they are misleading 90% of the times, i found out that with my 280x toxic, never seen such bullshit benchmarks :) in reality it's only slighty slower than 780 but on benchmarks it's like 50% worse than 780

    but nevermind that, let's say 760 is faster

    4GB Vram does nothing for the core performance and at 1080P none of the extra 2GB will get used on a 270X!

    that's right :) maybe he play BF4 with resolution scale, hehe but let's leave it here and move on, question solved :)
  8. Watch sales on newegg. I seen a pny gtx 770 on sale for 299.99 last week. A 770 is a nice step over a gtx 760
  9. amd
  10. I have gigabyte mobo, not sure on exact board I don't wanna crawl down and look at the numbers with AMD x4 965 3.42ghz processor, 16gb ddr 3 RAM, the Radeon 6870 HD, 120gb ssd so on
