Hey everyone. Since the GTX 680, the card I want, is out of stock, should I get a used 6xxx series AMD or a used 5xx series NVIDIA GPU for now? Anyone know of a good deal for any of those last generation cards? Thanks all.
Well that depends on what your using now and how badly you need a video card......I don't see any point in buying a used video card because the one you want is out of stock.
The GTX680 was a paper launch to hold people from buying HD7XXX series gpu's. It worked, but now everyone that decided not to buy HD7XXX and go for GTX6XX is out of luck and out of stock while there are plenty of HD7XXX cards available. They should have postponed launch until they had sufficient stock.
It was a trick tactic by Nvidia that will end up backfiring on them because now people have no choice but to buy HD7XXX or GTX5XX.
I guess it was better than Nvidia's GTX4XX (fermi) "launching soooooooooooon" campaign wood screws included.
My budget for now would be $300. The reason I have decided on this is because I can just get the GTX 680 when the supplies are higher, like in May or June. I would be ok with med settings I suppose, but I prefer high, so that is why I would like a 560ti or higher for NVIDIA or a Radeon 6870 or higher for AMD. I found a deal for $245 for a new 560ti 448 core, but I was wondering if I could get a better deal somehow.
