Graphics Card For Under 230USD

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi

I'm looking for the best possible graphics card for under 230USD. I wouldn't like to buy used or refurbished.

 

So far this is the best GPU that I can find, is it the best option though?

I've also seen this, would it be a better option?

Or can you guys find something better?

 

Thanks!

i gotta ask whats the problem with buying used because its going to get you a better card than a 1660

I'm not happy buying used because I have before and that's left me with a $200 piece of useless metal. It broke after the sellers warranty was finished.

However, if you or someone else can find a card that I can 100% rely on working, or with a decent warranty I will consider it.

This or try to get the EVGA SC Ultra for $10 bucks more, but it seems that it will be in stock only next week.

Get one of the Super models, not a upcharged standard 1660 with fancier fans or unnoticeably bumped up clockspeeds, you can tweak clockspeeds yourself in MSI Afterburner on any of them all the same, and eitherway Super will still be faster.
