Looking for a graphics card that fits

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi guys, not a total noob, but fairly close to one. I inherited a gaming PC that was probably pretty good a few years ago.

Intel Core i5-4670  flats in dahisar

16gig Ram  property in chembur

MSI Radeon R9 270X 2GB Twin Frozr Gaming OC  land solutions

It worked quite well for all of my gaming needs. I know it's not the best in the world, but it did the trick and ran things well enough.  new projects in dadar

And that was great for the past few years. But now the graphics card is shit. I got those green lines on my screen and I had to rip it out. I don't want to build a new pc (not true, the fact is I can't afford to)  2 bhk flats in pisoli

All I really want is to find a graphics card that isn't too powerful for my older processer and won't break my wallet in the process. I'm willing to spend a few hundred bucks at the most.

Unless you go for the used market, you're looking at a 1650 super for that amount

Depends on how much you want to spend. For over $150 you can get a 5500XT or a 1650 Super. For around $200 you can get a 1660 Super. For around $300 you can get a 5700 or a 2060
