Hello,.

 

I will probably need to replace my G-card, an ASUS EAH6870 DC/2DI2S/1GD5 (PCI-E). Got a pretty decent gaming computer, and I'd like to get something on par with or a little better than my old card.

 

I need recommendations. Will probably go with ASUS again.

Thanks,

 

Daniel.

Hello S.O.A.D.A.,

 

Before suggesting any graphics card upgrade we need some information on your present hardware (any intended use other than gaming)  your maximum budget and the country in which you will make the purchase.

Hello,

 

Mobo is GA-990FXA-UD3 (AM3+ socket)

CPU:AMD Phenom II X6 1100T

XMS3 — 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 1600MHz C9 Memory Kit in dual-channel (Corsair).

PSU: Seasonic 620GM Active PFC F3

3 WD harddrives, and LG DVD/Burner

Box: Cooler Master HAF 922

OS: Win7 64 bit

 

I use it for work (mostly openOffice and browser) and for gaming, and I generally enjoy having a powerful computer.

My budget - around $250, I wuill prolly be buying it in my country (Israel).

 

Thanks,

Daniel.

The budget and the output of the present PSU are limiting factors I'm afraid  :(

 

Two cards that would I would deem appropriate are the R9 290 and the GTX 970 but unfortunately a suitable R9 requires a more powerful PSU than you have and the GTX 970 exceeds your budget.

 

1: ASUS GTX 970. over budget but would not require a PSU upgrade, I would suggest saving the additional funds for this card.

 

2: MSI Radeon R9 290 GAMING requires a minimum 750W PSU with 42 amps on the +12V rail.
