Default Hey question

its been awhile since I was around... I was going to make a post asking about upgrading my dying card (GTX 275) but I have no idea where to post it. The AMD thread is dead with like no posts? The Nvidia side has forums and sub forums for every card So hey guys I'll just ask here


I'm looking at a 7850 or a 650Ti not sure trying to find a good deal I have $120 to spend I am trying to sell my 275 GTX for like $50 but that might not happen so IDK. Advice guys?


Oh btw I have a wife now and a 4 month old son I cant belive its been sooo long. I'll post some pics of Maximus Wade Styer later he was a premie but he caught up so fast!

On topic, you're not going to get too much of a boost moving from the 275 to 650.

http://www.anandtech.com/bench/GPU13/583
http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/520?vs=680

Not a one to one with the 285 vs the 275, but those two cards aren't that far apart. If the original card is going bad, it wouldn't be a bad replacement since it runs cooler and takes less power to run.

Could you tell us more about your requirements, Mythy? What resolution will you be playing at? What games or genres? Still the system specs in your sig?

Hey myth - You still trying to sell your car? How about the handcuffs?

On a new note - Who is up for the annual NVNEWS party? I'm putting it together as we speak.
