I only really need a card that is good enough to play older games, like Starcraft 2. I don't really plan on playing any new games.


Crysis is an old game. Do you plan on playing that?

Star-Craft 2 was designed for a 2-core CPU, and a 500 or 600 series GPU if I remember.

A turtle crossed the road and got mugged by two snails. As police arrive, they ask it what happened. The turtle replies, I dont know. It all happened so fast.

No.

Sorry, not trying to be a dick, but the only proper answer to this question is: No.

You should get a 6670, a used one.

Make sure your power supply is adequate for anything you decide to buy. The 750 and 750TI perform well for the power consumed, but cost more than your budget.

Check any card you are interested in on this list before buying for a general idea of expected performance:

I remember seeing a used 4870 cards on Ebay a few weeks back for ~$35 but they might have sold out by now. They also use plenty of power.

Would that one be good enough?

Sure, yeah, if you can wing that, that's not bad at all.
