    Graphics Card Upgrade ?

    I was looking to upgrade my gfx card recently as i have some spare cash lying around i thought at the moment i could probably use an update from a gtx 260 ! at the time when i bought this card it was around 120 and im looking at stores on the internet for much better cards for much lower prices (British Websites) obviously im not out to spend a huge amount of money somewhere around 60, now i have seen a few that have caught my eye but wouldn't really no how to look for a great card for a certain budget

    so basically if you guys could maybe hint me some good cards that would fit my specs and my budget which is around 60 which i think is around $93 im not quite sure i would be really grateful ! Cheers Brothers ! :'D





    QuadCore AMD Phenom II X4 965
    MSI 770-C45
    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 260 (896 MB)

    For just a little more money saved you could get an EVGA GTX 560TI superclocked. I have two of these cards in my rig and they tear through BF3 no problem. Even one does really well on high settings. And for the money it's not a bad deal seeing I'm close to 570 speeds since they are superclocked. Plus the warranty is good too.

    I run 2x asus hd6950 2gb cards, Know this is over your set limit but a 1gb card is pretty cheap.
    After you get your card you just need a bios update and you have a 6970, did this with my cards over a month ago and no problems :wink:

    If you can find one around I would get a GTX460 1gb. This card is amazing, with fps and hack running I get 55 fps on high setting in BF3. I have mine oc'd at core-825MHz. Runs incredibly cool too on load!

    If you get 2 for SLI, I'm sure fps will double!

    I run crossfire, sli is for nvidia.
    One 6950 card would be enough for you.
    In your pricerange this would help you best I think

    I would get a 990fx mobo just to be honest. You have the choice of going SLI or Crossfire on these boards. With anything under that would limit you to Crossfire only. Having a versatile board will help you choose what you want if you don't like the latter.
