Graphics card under 50$ us

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So I know $50 isn't much for a gpu, but I want to go used and get the best bang for buck. I bought a few crazy cheap desktops they all have a 250gb hdd, 8gb ddr3 550 watt seasonic psu and phenom ii x6 1045t's.

I know its obsolete but hey for 30$ a system why not turn my living room into a lan gaming center for my family.

anyway they have onboard graphics as of now. my goal is e sports titles low end gaming and old triple a games at 1080p ideally 60 fps.

any ideas guys??? also id need to buy 3 video cards so as many suggestions as possible.

I was thinking 650ti's hd 7850's r9 270's etc

(sorry for any punctuation errors/ spelling errors)

Should be able to fetch a hd 7950 or hd 7970. 

 

At these lower pricepoints you are much better of picking up an older GCN card. 

i will look into it thanks!

I really appreciate it do you you think it would be much of a bottle neck? reason i ask is maybe for a slightly lower price i could get something that wont bottle neck at all.

At 1080p the chip is around if not faster than an FX chip. The big thing id strive for is the fastest you with 3-4gb of vram given how many games are eating vram. 
I’m seeing 280x and 380 going for around 50-60. 
just watch and try to snipe bids on eBay.
