Looking to upgrade from HD6870

#1HalpaPosted 2/11/2014 2:24:10 PM
Are there any $200 video card that would be a significant upgrade from an HD6870?

Other components:

i7 2700K CPU
16GB RAM
750W PSU

I find that the HD6870 still suits my needs but I just have the itch to upgrade.

I'm actually not sure. Maybe a GTX 660? Not sure for the AMD side.

It depends what you mean by significant.

Right now on AMD's side the 270x is around $220 and is a decently powerful card,

With a $20 rebate and AC4, it's not a bad alternative to a 270X considering its recently inflated prices.

For exactly 2 generations upgrade technically would be R9 280X, but the price is horrible right not. Maybe GTX 760 if you don't mind another $50.

You may also consider waiting for the GTX 750ti and seeing the performance it offers at that lower price point.
