My Nephew wants to upgrade video in the I3 system I built him before D3 comes out he plays at 19x1080 he has 240 bucks to spend I know you can get a pair of 460 GTX 1gb refub on Newegg for 239.98 or a GTX 480 Refurb for 238.98 but in the under 250 price range is there any better video card?
SLI could have Micro stutter
480 you can make a roast on
And Sorry I am a diehard Intel NVidia fan boy so I just don’t know about the ATI line up
His MB would be an 8x/8x with two video cards installed (not a huge issue but just letting you know)
Could bump your budget a little and get a used gtx 580 for $300. Newegg has a referb one for $320 with a promo code. It is over your budget but you will be set for a while.
240 is his budget with shipping I think that is his whole tax refund check if you ask me and I am not going to kick in the difference this time sure he is a good kid but I already do that way too often for my family.
