best graphics card for under

11 posts in this topic

Hi all,

So firstly, let me say: I will be ordering from Amazon as I can get NDD as well as I have ?120 gift voucher for it.

Ok, now down to business! I plan to order this as quick as possible.

I plan to get a new graphics card as my AMD 5770 now seems to be lagging behind. I don't have a major preference between the two manufacturers (AMD/Nvidia) although I have always gone AMD in the past due to good driver support (others will disagree, but I never had many issues).

I've been out of the game now for the past year or so as I lost interest due to lack of funds! Now I have some money I feel it's time for a new GPU.

So, for under ?250, what is the best graphics card I can get. I'd only probably get a latest gen card such as the 7xxx or 6xx series.

Games I mainly play, BF3 A LOT (will also play BF4), Fifa 13 (and next gen), Sim City and possibly bioshock infinite.

EDIT: I was looking into the 7870, however I have a bigger budget so I can afford more.

TIA!

For around that you can get 660Ti or 7950. Depends whether your preference is AMD or nVidia.

Thanks, I know it's not that much in reality, but I don't think I've dropped more than ?250 on one item since my car :p.

What frame rates are you seeing? Also, did you overclock it? How much better does it run? Is it pretty quiet?

IKR, I just spent $1500 on a new setup and I havent spent that much except for a car :p

Anways I have a 680, so my frames wont be much help, but I dont typically mess with OCing.

Mine is quiet even with a load, well quiet for me :p
