Best GPU for the $ *UNDER $100*

I pulled it down to these four cards.
Which will give the best performance for the $?
Buying one of these today

-Note
Will be upgrading GPU down the road, figure 6 months.
Having an NVidia card would benefit with the fact that it could be used as dedicated PhysX later.

(And I know the 6670 looks like the obvious choice, but I want feedback)

More about best under
  1. 6670 would honestly be the best.
  2. Stretch your budget just a little bit and get this:

    Or if you cannot go over 100 get this:

  3. Hey there should be a 7750 too.
    Its the best card at that Range.
  4. ^ +1
  5. agreed. you should look at a 7750 too but out of the cards above I would get the 6670 because of the GDDR5 memory

    even the 7750 has gddr5 memory and performs better than the 6670. don't misguide posts

    jaideep said "out of the cards above I would get the 6670 because of the GDDR5 memory" so that doesn't imply the 7750 doesn't use GDDR5.
  8. Both cards i linked are much better than a 7750, sheesh come on guys.

    Nothing wrong with buying refurb, great way to save money. Also a 6770 will run on a 300w psu and a 6850 will run on a 400w psu.
  11. Well it's up to the OP really if they want to buy used. And a lot of companies won't allow the warranty to be transferred to a new owner. And GTX660 is a great card for the price, but it appears to be over what OP is willing to spend so it's a bad recommendation... so for the same reason, those two $100 cards aren't really much of a recommendation either.

    EDIT: Just noticed title of under $100 :-) You could get a 7750 for below $100, so I'll +1 that recommendation. I'd personally avoid Sapphire though due to a history of bad experiences with them (I've owned three and all three died) but I maybe just had bad luck. They'd probably last at least until your proper upgrade. Also I've got an XFX at the mo and it's not great (fan is faulty).
  12. 1. Saphire HD 7770 on Newegg. Just over $100 post rebate and shipping
    2. Saphire HD 7750 on Newegg. Just under $100 post rebate and shipping

    Link is a reference of performance and costs.
