hello

my current gpu has to go, its Palit GeForce GTX 260 896MB Sonic, it doesnt support dx11, which is what i need -> crysis3 and some other things

what im looking for is a good gpu, preferably quiet, dont care about power usage, price max 140$ (100-105 €) (not living in the us, so cant use any bargain ) and also i dont want used card, i prolly wont OC it and for sure will not SLI.

current pc:
AMD Phenom II X4 945 95W
Gigabyte MA770T-UD3P
8GB ddr3 1333mhz
OCZ ModXStream Pro 500W
22inch 1920x1080 screen

i would also prefer nvidia over radeon

is gtx650 ti my only option? or maybe amd is so superior in that price range that i should leave nvidia?

many thanks for your inputs.

hmm 164$ ... thats cheaper than here, where i live, here cheapest 7850 is around 195-200$, if it was for 165 here it would be a no-brainer, but thats almost 1/3 more, so no way,

yeah its either 650 or 7770, both are similar in scores, but 7770 seems a lil bit cheaper, but in that case i would still try to find quiet 650ti just for the sake of having nvidia

Aw that's a shame.

Between those two, I would take the Nvidia card personally. Gigabyte are your best bet.
