New graphics card - recommendations please!

Recommended Posts

Hey all,

 

Looking for some advice / recommendations for a new graphics card, basically my trusted GTX670 is dying, the fan is going nuts and it's running at around 80c in Heroes of the Storm and a benchmarking tool pushed it to 95c before crashing the poor thing.  The noise from it when I play Rust also brings a lot of complaints from house-hold members. I've had it for over 3 years now so I think it's time to let go.

 

Because it came with my PC it seems to be an unbranded jobby so I suspect heatsink needs new thermal paste but seeing as it is a little out-dated now I want to upgrade.

 

I want to stick with nVidia as I prefer their cards , I have a budget of around £100-£150 for a new card, what can you recommend for me? Please include links :)

 

Cheers!

I'm on my mobile at the moment so can't find anything specific but when I look for a new gfx card I always look at TomsHardware gfx charts to make sure I'm getting the best performance for my money.

Would you mind letting us know of a budget or price bracket you have in mind

Between £100-£150

Cheers, I'll have a look at that

 

R9 380 or GTX 960.  Take your pick on either, they are both around £150 if you look in the right places.

Would prefer to stay with nVidia :)

 

Go 960 love mine!

Second vote for the 960!  Any particular model/brand and is it overclockable?

      Me and a mate are attending the Cardiff CS:GO qualifiers. Looking to join a team that needs 2 x mercs.

      epic24 seems so long ago and I haven't been back since. Having taken the 3v3 Rocket League tournament, I'm hungry for more.
       
      And so...
       
      I have plans to return to epic27 with a new team behind me! I am incredibly excited as epic24 was my first taste of a LAN and I loved every minute of it. It's completely worth the 700 miles round trip and I'm ready to do it all over again!
