Best ~$300 nVidia GPU?

#1TerantatekPosted 9/20/2013 4:39:02 PM
I wanna play games like Skyrim without microstutter, possibly the upcoming Fallout 4 and such aswell at a consistent 60fps. I turn stuff like AntiAliasing and multisampling off. Itd be nice if the card was guranteed to never stutter/microstutter/frameskip aswell as never coil whine.

I currently have a 7950 which microstutters in Skyrim like nothing else and I've tried every fix there is besides changing to a completely new type of GPU. Now I have the money for a new GPU and I want to make sure it DOES NOT stutter at all, I want butter smooth frames, motion and gameplay. Supposedly nVidia is where I find that.

I run:
I5 3470 @ 3.6ghz
8gb corsair vengeance 1600mhz
Win 7 64bit

Can you RMA the card? It isn't an AMD thing it's just a bad card if it really is having a stuttering problem. You could also try updating your drivers if you haven't

I've had this card for a year now, would they let me RMA?

Also I've gone through:
12.3
13.1
13.2
13.4
13.8b3
13.9

All were fresh installs and clean uninstallations.

You'd have to check how long the warranty was when you bought it

You're not going to be guaranteed no coil whine or microstutter. All you can do is buy a product where it's less of a problem.(GTX670)
