My 3 year old GeForce 8800 GTS 320mb card just died and I'm looking to replace it with a sub- $100 card. Will the GeForce 240 or 430 give me as good as performance as or better than my trusty old friend?
this card is pushing your budget a little, its gonna be pretty much exactly $100 after shipping. but its a gts 450 (i have a 450 in one of my builds and its incredibly fast. easily twice as good as your 8800)
That would be why I included the information on the mail in rebate. I know if I was posting on a subject and some one included a little information that I may not have thought of it wouldn't bother me to have more choices. Most people are not totally hard locked on a price. I must be lucky because I have not had a rebate not honored yet.
It may have taken a while but I eventually got the money.
The 460 is a totally higher class of card and would be worth the 10 bucks.
But if he is hard locked the 250 is probably the best choice. Also if he trusts ebay a lot of cards are making their way there now that the 560 Ti is available.
This is my opinion you have the right to your own.
Yep sometimes it is its really sad that people expect their equipment not to depriciate any over time. Some of the prices are higher than retail now because they are going from the original cost. Sometimes you can find a bargain though.
