Upgrading my GTX 460

#1maxfreakPosted 10/1/2013 3:37:20 PM
So my poor GTX 460 is finally starting to show her age and I plan to replace her hopefully soon. Im really surprised to see how cheap 2gb Radeon 7870s and GTX 660s are going for. I see them ranging from used $125 - $150 and new starting at $170 with some deals going on now. Which one do you think performs better?

I'd say go for a 7870.

Like $30 more can get you a 7950, which would be a HUGE step up from what you have.

This one has a promo code for $20 off as well as a $20 MIR:

Or you can get this one, which comes with an extra free game:

I would get the HD 7950.
