Hey guys,

 

Im unsure when it comes to hardware.

My pc specs atm are...

 

- CPU - AMD Athlon II X4

- RAM - G.Skill Value F3-10600CL9D-4GBNS 4GB (2x2GB) DDR3

- Mushkin 996768 Silverline PC3-10666 (2x2GB) DDR3

 

- MOBO - ASUS M4A87TD-USB3 Motherboard

- GPU - EVGA GeForce GTX 460 1GB 720MHz

- PSU - CoolerMaster eXtreme Power Plus 650W

 

I believe my graphics card has died or something, no idea. I've got no idea which graphics card to get?

Is there any graphics card available that can match or better my current one. Without me having to upgrade any of my other parts?

Preferably around/near the AUD $200 mark

 

Cheers guys.

Gday.

Staying with your budget, the best performance card would be the GTX 750 TI, about 25% increase.   No worries with your PSU as it draws all power from the PCI-E slot.

Not been able to find much in the way of direct comparison with yours, but this is what I got.

researched them often and this is the one I recommend, > http://au.pcpartpick...ard-gvn75toc2gi

Very nice choice thank you. I'll go with your recommendation. Just finished baking my gfx card so I'll go with yours if my efforts failed.

All the 750 ti perform about the same and the on you listed is OK, but the Gigabyte will get about 3/5 more FPS, depending on the game, a better cooler, lower temps and quieter.

 

this model, > http://www.arc.com.a...55606&p=product

or the black edition, > http://www.arc.com.a...56947&p=product

I really appreciate the help. I'll be picking up the suggested model you listed first thing tomorrow morning. Thank you once again.
