So I just bought a GTX 780 FTW like a month or 2 ago, and it died. Im not sure why but if anyone could answer that question it would be great. 

 

Anyways, so I need a new GPU around $150 USD (I got the 780 for $140) It can be used and i would like a passmark score of 7000-8000. 

 

Thanks

The only option you have with this budget in the "new GPU" section, would be a GTX 1050ti 4GB variant in the mini design, which only have 1 DVI port, 1 HDMI and 1 display port, so, if you want to get the X2 DVI ports+ the additional X1 HDMI port, you will have to spend a little bit more on the dual fan designs which cost an additional 20-$30 for the ports you want, otherwise, you can just buy an adapter.

Yep, would a GTX 960 2GB FTW for $140 be worth it?

The performance difference between the 1050ti and the 960 are comparable within a small margin where the performance difference is very minimal. The 780 outperforms the 1050ti and if you can find one used for $150, then its definitely worth it.

Yep, would a GTX 960 2GB FTW for $140 be worth it?

I looked at the seller and it doesn't look legit because multiple of the reviews said the same thing, and the feedback was 100% positive with 16 positive, 0 neutral, and 0 negative.

 

This tells me that they might be trying to make themselves look really good but over did it. Usually a good seller has 80-95% positive feedback with some neutral and negative reviews.
