    Best GFX Card under $100.

    Is there a card I can get for less than $120 that could give me 50+(recording) fps in Crossfire?

    I prefer TigerDirect. Free shipping.


    But I found this on Newegg. Newegg.com - SAPPHIRE 100326L Radeon HD 6670 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card

    I guess I'll order everything from Newegg. Building a PC for my brother and might as well add myself a little gfx card. He's paying.

    And this is my Mobo. I don't think I have PCI 2.1 Unless the x16 is it.

    Biostar TA75A+ AMD A Series Motherboard - ATX, SOcket FM1, AMD A75 Chipset, 2000MHz DDR3 (O.C.), SATA 6.0 Gb/s, RAID, 8-CH Audio, Gigabit LAN, SuperSpeed USB 3.0, AMD Dual Graphics Ready at TigerDirect.com


    My first build. I worked for Geek Squad last Summer but all I ever did hardware wise was Ram, Hard Drives, and Processors replacements;

    I got a GTX 460 for 99 bucks @ newegg. You can find a decent deal there.

    Remember if you are buying a new GPU please make sure you have the right reqiurements and if you want a cheap GPU and one that is good try either the GTX series or GTS 450.
    If you buy a card like the Radeon HD 6670 make sure you have atleast a 400 watt PSU.
    If you don't got one than im sorry to say you might have to save up money, cuz the PSU is the one thing you must spend atleast the most on in your computer.

    If hes is getting a GPU like that has to make sure hes the right Processor or his computer wont be able to handle the new GPU.
    To run that you need atleats a Quad core or higher.


    If you want a really good card you could try this one:
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130677
    you wont really need a Quad core, but a Dual Core would be good enough but you still need a good enough PSU.

    I figured that part was obvious, but yes he is right.

    Newegg.com - Recertified: EVGA 896-P3-1171-RX GeForce GTX 275 896MB 448-bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
    you wont really need a Quad core, but a Dual Core would be good enough but you still need a good enough PSU.
    You could have those really old Athlon quad cores and not run it.
    You're kidding right?
    I had a computer with Intel Core Duo 2 E6750 running a GTX 460, with 500 watts.
    A 460 wouldn't need a quad core CPU.
    It's not always about the cores.
    i3's are dual core but they can run any graphics card fine.

    No i am not kidding some GPU require you to have a really good processor or you wont be able to run the video card.
    I have experience this my self tried running GTX 550 with the processor i have now, didn't work, (Had a Intel core 2 E6600 2.4 ghz) ended up taking it back.
    Then my friend told me that i would have to upgrade the processor to use most of the GPU, he told me the best one i could possible run would be the GTX 295.
    But you might be right, not all GPU require the same specs, the manufacturer i was running was EVGA cards.

    Still better to have a quadcore, than potentially bottleneck your GPU. Besides I got mine for around 140, which isn't too bad.

    I know that, I'm just saying you don't need 'really good processors' to run a 460.
    Since the new releases of socket 1366, 1156, 1155, 2011, AM3/+ those are the really good processors by today's technologies.

    Yes yes but I'm just saying the 460 isn't too high end to be bottlenecked with old socket 775 dual core processor.
