Hi, I was just wanting to know what's a good graphics card for price.
I am doing an AMD FX build, and since it doesn't have integrated graphics, I need a gpu.
I just need something that games, I don't need the super resolutions and 4x AA (I've seen 8x AA on a game before and really I thought 2x was enough) so what's a good card?
I'm going by this and I was wanting to know what the absolute cheapest is for price. I'm looking for one at ~$100, but the lower price is better. I will upgrade to a far superior card later but I need one just to get my system going. The less I spend now means the more I have for my upgrade in about ~6 months to a year. I'm having troubles deciding but I'll take anything. I was thinking about the $10 GT 610 but I've heard it's a GT 520 and isn't good for gaming.
Also, if anyone has a link to any website that does benchmarks for my exact settings I want (1080p, 2xAA at most; I will probably be using my old monitor, a 720p and I might use AA.)
Thank you to anyone that helps.
Oh and also don't ask about the rest of the system, I already future proofed it to what I will need when I upgrade everything, including a psu that can handle the system, any upgrades, and a gtx 680 (the card that I'm looking at upgrading to, or about the equiv in the Radeon HD 8000 series and GTX 700 series)
And sorry about the link above, I'm not really sure how to do a link.
I've heard the 6670 is a good budget card, but what about nVidia? I see that there's a 630 and 640 for about the same price. I remember finding a chart comparing nVidia, AMD, and Intel cards, but I can't seem to find it again.
But thank you clutchc, I'll see if I can get one for a reasonable price.
If you want an nVidia option, GT630 is the way to go. It's not as fast as the 6670 but's it's not miles off. It's what I'll buy if my current backup card dies to keep me going until next year's models.
Thanks guys! I'm actually going to go with just that $10 610 from Newegg since I'm sure my game systems will last me until I can upgrade, or I can just sell my systems later on to upgrade.
The desktop I have now has a GeForce 6150SE, it's played most of the games I have for pc pretty well running of about 700 something megs of ram, so the 610 can't be horrible until the upgrade.
I will look into the 6670, 7750, 7770, 630, 640 and some similar priced cards if I can increase my budget some.
Haha that is insane! $10?! In the UK, cards don't go lower than £20 ($30) for the absolute cheapest buys. For $10, I'd take two. Even just for a backup card that's worth having. It won't do Battlefield 3, but start a thread in the gaming section if you want some recommendations for awesome older games to keep you going.
