Help me with choosing a new card Tags: Graphics Cards Graphics Product Last response: January 19, 2011 1:07 PM in Graphics & Displays Share rogigor January 18, 2011 5:45:40 PM Hi, I've posted here a while ago but I've managed to get some more money so my budget is now ~300$ I'm changing my gtx260 core-216 to some other, newer card. I'm thinking about: GTX460 768 (evga SuperOverclocket or gigabyte OC) GTX460 1024 (a.b.) 5850 6850 6870 Or should I patiently wait for gtx560 release? Rest of my rig: Q6600 @3Ghz 3Gb Ram DDR2 800 Chieftec 450W (i know it's poor but if I'll have to I'll change it) More about : choosing card rolli59 a c 1254 U Graphics card January 18, 2011 11:37:18 PM For that money HD6950 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... I would though not run that investment on that PSU. scatmanwfm January 19, 2011 3:02:46 AM I've got a Q6600 as well. It's at 3.5 and I have the XFX 6870 it runs very nicely able to put my graphics up quite a bit higher while still managing good frames. Definite noticeable improvement over my GTS 250.

Also Ill give a +1 to getting a new psu which the op will no doubt have to do, instead of running some cheap no name low wattage psu. rogigor January 19, 2011 8:51:46 AM Ok. I'll wait for gtx560 then and see the prices. If they're to high, I'll go for HD6870 (if it'll be cheaper that is) jjb8675309 a b U Graphics card January 19, 2011 1:07:33 PM sounds like a good plan Can't find your answer ? Ask !
