My ATI 1900XTX recently got damaged via my PSU and is, well, Fu**ed. :( 

Despite looking up on the specs for it's new generation replacement, I would appreciate recommendations on what would be best to take it's place, without hurting the $$$. I am not sure where to begin looking for an equal to it, so any feedback is appreciated. ;) 


BTW, ATI recommendations only! :non:

Well the x1900xt/xtx is roughly the same performance of a 8600gts. A simple GT430 will outpace it with ease in modern titles despite the lack of memory bandwidth and poor fillrates. I would aim for a 6670 instead.

Even the lowest end cards from a current generation will be much, much, MUCH faster than that card.

Thanks guys.

It's been a while since I was up to spec with the latest toys out there, but amazing to see how the tech is progressing over the years. Sad to see the old boy go but it's definitely time for an upgrade.

Thanks for the suggestions.

Here is where you can find the equivalent:

The closest ( a little better ) is the HD 4650 or HD 5550. If you are not gaming, then you can get those. But if you are gaming & want better experience, then it is a totally new discussion.
