View Full Version : GPU upgrade
03-23-2012, 07:28 PM
I'm thinking of upgrading my rig with a new video card this Summer. As you can see in my sig, it's the system with the 4850. Anything that would be a good upgrade on a budget? I haven't been keeping up with hardware much anymore, so with the current batch of video cards, I'm a bit lost.

On what budget precisely?

Haven't set one firmly yet, just looking for a good bang for the buck card. Likely though, it'll be no more than $150, preferably a bit under.

That best you can get at ~150$ is an HD 6870, I'd wait a while longer and look for a deal on a 6950 :)

Cool, I'm waiting until Summer anyway, so hopefully the prices will come down on it a little.

A used or discounted GTX570 or 480 could also be in your budget, keep your eyes open.

Start following the monthly reccommended video cards on tomshardware.
Not the best but a solidperspective.
