Best 200$ Graphics Card For 2x1080p monitors.

I am looking for a 200$ graphics card for 2 1080p monitors. I will be gaming with it and I dont think GPU matters when livestreaming but if it does, I will be livestreaming. And hopefully being able to play most games at ultra settings with decent FPS. I will only be using one monitor for the game and the second for a youtube video.

    GTX660Ti is terrible for multi monitors, 192-bit memory bus bandwidth means terrible performance with any kind of multi monitor/MSAA/FXAA.

    A great card is the Sapphire 7870GHz edition with a 256-bit bandwidth.

    +1 on that, I was looking for a HD 7870 for 200 but couldn't find one, guess I wasn't looking hard enough
  3. You can't really do gaming on ultra settings and decent fps with just a $200 graphics card. What games will you be playing? If it's games such as Battlefield 3 you will probably have to increase your budget by $40-$200. Also what what you define deecent FPS, between 40-50, 50-60, 60-70?

    By decent fps I meant about average 30. And i might be able to increase the budget by a little bit, maybe by 50$ if its enough
  5. if 30 fps is all i think a GTX 560ti would work fine, but i recommend spending the extra money to get a HD 7870 as that will give you better performance. I also found a cheap 7870 from newegg which is on discount right now for $210 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814202010

  7. 3x Windforce is louder than dual fans, or a blower type design like the IceQ.

    If you don't want a sapphire try to find a Twin Frozr, an IceQ, or a DirectCUII, the Asus DirectCUII would be my 2nd reccomendation.

    Im deciding between the Twin Fozr and IceQ, theres not really much of a difference beside 50mhz core clock, but is it worth it for about 20 bucks more?
  10. I would go Twin FoZr becasue it is more reliable than HIS.

    just a better all around card
