I've been using a GT9600 Geforce for the last seven years and now I have money to buy a new one (finally). Unfortunately, I have no idea how to deduce which is better than the other yadada.
I've only been looking around and it's just getting me nowhere. For now, I only play League of Legends, Starcraft 2, and Guild Wars 2. I would like to play these at high or max settings without dips before the 24~ FPS mark. I have a budget up to $200 dollars but if I can get the results for $100-150, that would be awesome.
I don't know the noticeable aspects of a 2GB Video Card versus 1 GB Video Card. So, anyway, these are what I have picked out so far. Any other recommendations are absolutely okay.
I have been looking at some variations of the GTX 650 that are priced around $120ish mark but wouldn't know if the cheapness of it is worth the trade off from the whatever positives are gained from cards $150+.
tl;dr I have a budget of $200. I would like for the upgrade to last (3-4 years) like the GT 9600. I want to play games at least on High settings without a hiccup.
