This one:http://ncix.com/products/?sku=54626&vpn=N460GTX%20Cyclo... looks to be a pretty good deal on that site. The EVGA Bstock sale has a 460 768m for 100 USD right now without having to deal with rebates if you can buy from there. http://www.evga.com/products/prodlist.asp?switch=20 m 0 l Related resources New GPU Upgrade - Forum Installing new GPU - Forum Do i need to update my board bios for my new gpu to post? - Forum Can my PSU handle new GPU - Forum installing new gpu - Forum Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Get the answer JoeAdamsIV April 15, 2011 2:23:32 AM Thanks for the reply, I would prefer to stick to AMD cards, what do you think of the 6790? m 0 l Timop a b U Graphics card April 15, 2011 2:30:09 AM Rather get a 6850, about the same price AR with a nice 10%+ performance boosts and lower power usage. IMO for your needs a 5770 (or even 48X0)would be enough, but your budget is high enough and some extra power performance wont hurt. m 0 l JoeAdamsIV April 15, 2011 2:34:49 AM Okay thanks, If I can find the 6850 for a good price I will go with that, I will look up some benchmarks, the 5770 will probably suit me fine. m 0 l benski a b U Graphics card April 15, 2011 2:36:29 AM 6790 seems like good card, but as Timop said the 6850 is better at that price if you're sticking with AMD. m 0 l JoeAdamsIV April 15, 2011 2:37:14 AM Great, thanks for the input. m 0 l shrkbay a b U Graphics card April 15, 2011 10:53:49 AM 6790 is falling behind the 6850 pretty a lot and cost more or less the same, i'd go with 6850/70 you can find them cheap on newegg, they'll max out any game with that res m 0 l 4745454b a c 175 U Graphics card April 15, 2011 12:49:25 PM Except Crysis at max. Was going to add that if you play WoW:Cata, make sure you get a DX11 card. This rules out a 4870, 4850, GTS250, etc. The newest WoW has a DX11 patch which increases performance. m 0 l JoeAdamsIV April 15, 2011 2:32:45 PM Okay, thanks everyone. I think I will go with the XFX 5770 or 6850. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Publish Related resources SolvedWanna buy new gpu...need advice..
