Posted on r/hardware: Looking for a replacement video card, around $100-$120 budget, suggestions?
My GTX460 vid card just died and I’m looking to buy a replacement tomorrow. I can’t buy online, so I’ve been looking at price lists of some local stores.
I was planning to get an Inno3d GTX650, but the store I plan to buy from is out of stock of those. They have an Asus GTX650, but it’s like 50% more expensive =/ (Not sure if there’s a large difference between the brands). What alternatives should I be considering before I go out to the mall tomorrow?
I’m a gamer, but I’m not really the “play on ultra-high settings” kind of guy. The most graphically intensive game I’ve bought recently is probably Skyrim.
I prefer Nvidia, but aside from preference, not many Radeon cards are being sold around here. Here’s a sample price list from one of my local stores: http://i.imgur.com/onK51.png - prices are not in USD, they’re in PHP, but roughly my budget should be around 5000+ or less in local prices. There’s not many choices if I can’t find an Inno3d GTX650…I’m willing to spend a little bit more if it will be more “future proof”, but I’m not sure which of these cards would be a good buy at higher prices.
