Best NVIDIA GPU in 200-300 range?

#1XxTwisted26xXPosted 11/14/2013 7:07:23 PM
Eeeep! With all these sales I finally convinced my friend to build a PC! Her price point is 200-300 and she wants NVIDIA for the PhysX effects. And I heard they recently went down in price for their GPUs? Im a AMD GPU user myself so I dont know much about them...

GTX 660 or even 670.

760. Best price for performance.

The GTX 670 is currently the best Nvidia card below $300:

A used GTX 770 should be about $280 too.

Omg that's PERFECT, Assassins Creed is actually the game she wanted to play! I convinced her to get it for PC compared to ps4 (what her money originally was going to).

Power supply is overkill but everything else is solid. I suggest getting a cooler right away though.

Yeah im thinking of grabbing her a water cooler, i saw one earlier on a timed black november sale for 30 bucks an evo 212 i think its called?

How many watts do you think for PSU to power all that? Im going to OC the CPU to 4.5 and GPU as far as it can go

Dont bother with a water cooler, just a get a solid air one.

650W will be more than enough.
