Best budget GPU?

Firearm2112

My brother currently has a GTX 750 and wants to upgrade. He's got 250 to spend. What's the best budget gpu for him at his budget? No preference in terms of Nvidia/AMD. A blower card would be optimal since his case dosent have the best airflow.

Thanks!

I assume you mean 250 dollars?

 

An R9 380 4GB or even the new 380X is probably his best bet, from MSI, Sapphire, XFX or Powercolor.

 

Here's a 380X I found: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814150761&nm_mc=AFC-C8Junction&cm_mmc=AFC-C8Junction-PCPartPicker,%20LLC-_-na-_-na-_-na&cm_sp=&AID=10446076&PID=3938566&SID= Great card, great cooler, and 30 dollars under budget.

I am not a professional. I am not an expert. I am just a smartass. Don't try and blame me if you break something when acting upon my advice.

No it is when you import in bulk.

For example more people buy the 4Gb version normally overseas so they ship a larger amount of it, lowering shipping costs and more discounts over bulk purchase.

 

That is why it's cheaper, not some currency sorcery.
