Best Graphics card for around $200

Ok so basically I'm running a crossfirex setup with dual HD5670's... I'd not very impressed with Crossfirex and want to go with a single card, is there anything in the $200 range that would work better? I want to be able to max out settings for Skyrim.

  1. gtx 560 or 560 ti check sales
  2. I wold say go with the 6870, it has performance similar to that of a GTX560. Its really just a preference thing between ATI and Nvidia.
  3. 6870 eww sorry in my eyes that card is a joke, and for the price the 560ti slams it.
  4. ok with the risk of sounding like the complete noob that i am :-P lol what's the difference between a 560 and a 560 ti?

    Cheapest GTX 560 Ti is $220 on Newegg. It's not in the OP's budget.
  6. I'm willing to go a little over $200, but no more then $220 tops

    Not a bad question. it's a good one actually. A GTX 560 Ti is basically an improved GTX 560. More processing units, overclocks very well, and much more. Great card overall.

    Where exactly? At that price, it's a steal! It's not on Newegg though.

    @ OP:If you are willing to go up to $220, then a GTX 560 Ti hands down.
  9. Ok thanks everyone! gtx 560 ti it is.
  10. You can get a xfx 6950 for $210 after rebate on newegg.com. xfx has lifetime warranty if you register within 30 days. Personally I like the lifetime warranty because I tend to keep my computers for 5-6 years.

    I believe the 560 is a lower clocked 560 ti. Nvidia released it to have a slightly cheaper card. I don't know if the chip design is different. edit: obviously I'm slow :-D
  11. eww Reference design card
  12. The prices have been rising in anticipation of Holiday season.....it's still really no contest. The factory OC's 560 Ti's pop outta the box at 900Mhz and easily OC to 1000 MHz +

  13. Mate if I were you I would wait to purchase just a little bit, I read that Nvidia is releasing a revised GTX560ti with more cores and crap. I bet it won't make much of a difference performance wise but I have no doubt that once its released the GTX 560 and the Ti will drop in price a bit. So if you wanna save some cash wait a bit and see how things play out.

    But then again, in the PC hardware world you can always wait to get something cheaper in the future but at some point you'll have to make the buy.

  14. Yeah, I'm probably gonna wait a little bit longer anyways... I've got plenty of money saved up but if i spend this i go back underneath my original goal for amount of money to have saved up... which sounds really dumb, but i'm weird about spending money lol but deffinately gonna get a 560 ti soon
