Best GPU for <$150 Tags: Graphics Cards GPUs AMD Graphics Product Last response: June 22, 2011 9:20 PM in Graphics & Displays Share Mutt x June 22, 2011 6:15:49 PM I would like to spend less than $150 for a GPU in the next week but my head swims looking at all the options. My monitor is a lowly 1680x1050 but may go HD one day. From what I have seen the AMD 6850 and Nvidia 460 are comparable. What I don't know is if a AMD 5770 or 6950 are worth considering or even a Nvida 460 SE since I've seen it on sale for $100! My question is: given current prices (Newegg, Amazon, etc) what are the cards I should be looking most closely at?

And even at the resolution a GTX 550 Ti might also be a good choice since it was made with 1680x1050 in mind: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... m 0 l cronos177 June 22, 2011 7:40:37 PM Not a 550 ti for sure, try to find a deal on a 1gb 460. If not go up to the 6850, but much better a 6870 which after rebate its like $165. i would seriously consider borrowing $30 if I were you for a 6870. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Get the answer Mutt x June 22, 2011 9:20:49 PM so cronos you think the 6870 is worth $65 more than the ones Halo suggested? BTW my budget is more principle than economic. Within a few months I will trade this GPU down to my kids computer and get me another to play BF3 and/or COD MW3 (if they have dedicated servers!) m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
