Cheap 8800GT alternative


I have a rig w/ 2GB RAM DDR2, a wolfdate E8400 CPU, a GAEP35DS3L mobo and (until recently) an 8800GT GPU.
Unfortunately, the latter stopped working a few days ago... Now I'm looking to replace it for a GPU of similar strength. I don't have enough money to replace the whole rig, though I know it's quite dated now.

My gaming requirements are along the lines of MW2 or HoMM-VI. My budget is approx 50-100 USD.

Any tips?

    5770 $120=$100 after MIR + Free Shipping

    The 5770 is the best bang for your buck.It's a simple upgrade but it's almost twice as powerful as the 8800GT.It's well worth the money,imo.

    I wouldn't suggest going any cheaper than the GTS450 because everything is weaker than the 8800GT below that.
  3. Thanks! I think I'll go with the GTS450, but I'll see if I can dish up the extra cash :)
  4. The 5770 is more powerful than the GTS450.
