I currently have a GTX 570 but it seems to be on its last legs, so I might need to upgrade. If I do, my budget is around $200 Canadian.

by last legs, I mean:
my right monitor would get full-screen wavy lines on it occasionally
both of my monitors turned off at the same time within the last 24 hours.
after said shut off, my left monitor turned to s***. by that, it got hit by a large amount of green static. it looks like this: https://i.imgur.com/lBV8IOt.jpg

the first two were fixed with a restart. the second was fixed with making sure the cable was properly connected to the VGA to DVI converter.

my current specs:
i5-2500k
GTX 570
16GB Ram
Win 7 64bit

if you can only afford $200 then a gtx 1050ti is for you........personally i would save up another $80 so u can get a 6gig gtx 1060 which is a much better card

So it's not possible to fix my 570? I mean I got good use put of it but I'd rather fix it than pay money.

I mean, you could reseat it since it honestly sounds like it might be a loose connection rather than a dying card. But, if the card is dying, there are things you can do to fix it, like the oven trick, but when it's actually time for it to go, it's time for it to go.

Thanks! It seems to have worked.

In Canada? GTX 1050 Ti, that's the best you can get with that price. Similar as my country too. The RX 570 is still scarce.

The best card with that CPU? GTX 1060, no more.

A proper upgrade would be a 1070 since you have a broken 570.
