cheap gpu

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

does anyone know any of those gpus that you're not supposed to buy cause they're not worth it? I need one. the cheapest one. I might fold on it for fun at night but I need it because I bought more monitors for productivity and I don't have enough outputs. I'd like it to make minimum 3k to 5k ppd so it'll be worth it to lose a cpu core for it. thanks!!

If you just need a VGA to power a monitor, you can get away with like a 20 dollar GPU. If you want to game on that monitor, then you're going to need a 100 dollar GPU.

 

Of course thats for brand new cards. You could probably find a used older card like a 600-700 series or something for less than 100 that would do amazing

GT 730 or HD 5450. If you want, a used HD 7770 wouldn't be that bad (5-8k PPD iirc)

If you just need monitor outputs, get the cheapest you can find from your preferred store.
If you want an efficient card which also folds, get something like the GTX 750. (about 100$)
