video card suggestions please

Post#1 » Sun Feb 21, 2016 1:17 pm

so i did a minor upgrade for those who seen my post in the rocket league thread. i was looking to upgrade my vid card here within the next month or so possibly, whats a decent upgrade to an nvidia gtx 460 in the 100-175 price range? ive heard the 750 isnt a bad card and i seen one on newegg this past week for around 115 but i dont want to spend 100+ if the upgrade isnt worth the money. the 460 i got is only 1 gig. would i be able to see a different in performance if i upgraded to a 2 gig 750?

i've got the 780, it is a couple years old now and it has served me well. It'll push you a bit over 150$ though.

I believe I have one of these barely used like new in box in my basement, I'd let go for $100, if you want to get a decent upgrade on the cheaper side...

Newegg has a GTX950 for $149 w/ $20 mail in... so $129. I'm actually considering to buy it myself as I have a real old card also.

Also any new card you buy is PCIe 3.0. You're probably in the same boat as me with only PCIe 2.0. They will work in the slot since it's backwards compatible but you won't be getting the speeds advertised on the cards.
