GPU Suggestions Tags: Graphics Cards PowerColor Graphics Last response: December 15, 2012 3:09 PM in Graphics & Displays Share zecele December 15, 2012 1:32:58 PM Hi, Currently i have a Powercolor 6850 and it has caused more problems that it has solved. (lag spikes, stuttering etc) Anyway as its nearly Christmas i am trying to decide what GPU to upgrade too. BTW im completely avoiding AMD as Nvidia seems more reliable. I was thinking about the ASUS GTX 560 TI but didnt think there would be much of a performance improvement over my old card. My budget is between £100 - £200 the cheaper the better. Thanks SPECS: Powercolor 6850 1GB AMD Phenom II X4 695 BE ASUS M4A88T-M Coolermaster 550 PSU 500GB HD 8GB DDR3 RAM Windows 7 64 bit sp1 More about : gpu suggestions zecele December 15, 2012 1:37:55 PM Also should say that i am looking to run games like Far Cry 3, Dark Souls, Skyrim, and future games like Bioshock Infinite sam_p_lay a b U Graphics card December 15, 2012 2:40:50 PM GTX660 is what you want, good price here: http://www.scan.co.uk/products/2gb-msi-gtx-660-twin-fro...(x16)-6008mhz-gddr5-gpu-1033mhz-boost-1098mhz-cores-9 Be aware though that Far Cry 3 is insanely demanding and will need reduced settings on just about any card you buy. Even a GTX670 will only reach the 30s with max settings at 1080p.

GTX660 is close to GTX580 performance. zecele December 15, 2012 3:01:31 PM sam_p_lay said:GTX660 is what you want, good price here: http://www.scan.co.uk/products/2gb-msi-gtx-660-twin-fro...(x16)-6008mhz-gddr5-gpu-1033mhz-boost-1098mhz-cores-9 Be aware though that Far Cry 3 is insanely demanding and will need reduced settings on just about any card you buy.
