BUDGET AMD AND NVIDIA CARDS

Gaming only

Budget wise if you can go used I can highly suggest a used AMD HD7970, 7970Ghz edition, or 7950. For Nvidia if you go used a GTX 680 or 770 ( Same cards ) or no lower then a GTX 670.

If you want new for nvidia it is a GTX 950 or 960 or on AMDs side you have the R9 270x ( Is a bit more p/p then the 950 IMO ) and the R9 380 which is around 10-15% faster then a GTX 960.

 

Though if you can afford a GTX 960 or R9 380 see about getting a used R9 290/x

Budget is a relative term... $300 could be cheap to you but expensive to me. Therefore your budget is $300 while mine is $100...

 

Anyways... Here is a list of good "budget" GPU's;

  1. GTX 750ti
  2. GTX 950
  3. GTX 960
  4. HD 7950
  5. HD 7970
  6. R9 370
  7. R9 380

R9 380 >> GTX 960 > GTX 950 > R7 370 >> GTX 750Ti

Highest VRAM models for all of them.

100-110 $

unless youre buying used, that amount of money will get you a crappy card

save up to $150-200 and then you can actually get something decent

I have personally not though I have helped people find used ones. I am in the process of getting a used R9 290/x though those out of your price range.

IF you look into a AMD HD7950 or 7970 just make sure the card wasn't used for any mining or folding of some sorts.
