GPU for $200- CAN Dollars

Hello, I'm in need of help! I need a new graphics card for $200 or less. I'm going to purchase a OCZ ZS 650w PSU and a graphics card. My total buget is $270 ($70 for the PSU and $200 for GPU) I'm hoping the GPU is around $180, but 200 will do.

Could you guys please use this site or any Canadian site? Thanks

    I looked into that as well but unfortunately its out of stock!
    If that's the case then he should go with the card you found or be smart and wait for 660 TI to be released it's likely other better cards prices will drop. ;)
  4. can't argue on that one :P Op is better off waiting for one month and who knows- maybe the hd7850 would drop below $200 by the time the gtx660ti hits the market.
  5. Yep that's why i am recommending OP to do that because no matter what OP going to be getting a better deal that way and a stronger card then OP would be able to get if OP bought today besides the 660 ti is suppose to be released aug.16th.
  6. Ight thanks guys, I'm going to wait a couple days maybe till the 20th so I could return the 560TI and buy it again if it gets cheaper (there's a 7day return policy) . Or maybe there will be a official NVIDIA release date set, in that case I'll just hold off untill the 560TI is cheaper Thanks.

  7. No problem!Your welcome!
  8. Uh sorry but, I just found this EVGA 550 TI 2GB card. I like this because it's 2 Gigs and its better for a dual monitor ( I don't dual monitor game because is annoying :P the damn black monitor line!) Plus the other crappy monitor is a couple years. I know the 550TI isn't the best for gaming, but by how much? http://www.canadacomputers.com/product_info.php?cPath=43_557_559&item_id=038381 Also I can do that EVGA step up program

  9. If you're not gaming on the second monitor, you don't need the extra RAM. There are games coming out that can benefit from more than 1GB of RAM on the graphics card at 1080p resolution and above. However, the 550Ti isn't powerful enough to take advantage of the extra RAM, as it really isn't powerful enough for running games on ultra at 1080p anyway.

    You're better off with a stronger 1GB card than a weaker 2GB card.
