    New Graphics card

    So, It seems my rather decent off the shelves PC (not even 6 years old) has become obsolete in this world of gaming
    RAM/harddrive/CPU wise its still fairly decent, but Its graphics card (AMD ATI Radeon 2600 XT) Is literally the last model before DX10.1 and DX 11.0 compatibility made its breakthrough


    Anyway, I need suggestions on a good, but CHEAP, graphics card (My ideal price range would be <$60-$80)
    I know virtually nothing of actually building and modifying PCs, so I dont know what to look for to put on my system

    Sorry to break it to you but there are no "good" cheap graphics card... The closest thing your going to get is a Nvidia GT 630 or 640 and those are terrible... I'd say just a save up a little more $$$ and get yourself a AMD Radeon HD 7770.

    If your PC runs using that video card then your PC is obsolete too..

    Why must you do this to me Dave. .


    Yeah, I thought that might be the case.
    My mom just ordered herself a laptop off Dell (We can only use Dell because we have an account, no money to buy anything) so its going to be a while before we pay that off and can afford to look into getting myself something
    Guess I could always put down some of my own money, who needs a car right?

    Push the range up to $100+ And get this
    Newegg.com - Galaxy 65NGH8DL7AXX GeForce GTX 650 GC 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card

    Heres someone running battlefield 3 with it:


    BUT, if your pc currently has that GPU, you're better off getting a whole new pc then just changing the graphics card.
    The 650 isnt exactly amazing and if you where to have a look around you could most likely find a better one for less price
