View Full Version : Which Graphics Card for 1080p around $200

22-11-2013, 11:03 PM
Am going to the US soon and am wanting to pickup a graphics card there as they are supposedly 'cheaper'?

I need something that will handle games at 1080p medium/high settings under $200NZ. I'm thinking about getting maybe the GTX 650Ti / GTX 650Ti Boost.

Any recommendations? Don't know much about AMD cards.

http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/gaming-graphics-card-review,3107-3.html doesn't have the new R series cards though.

Seems like the 650Ti Boost or the R9 270 (or 7850 / 7870) are your options, the AMD cards are faster.

have seen the 7970 for a little over $200USD. Probably works out to be $250ish. Dunno how much stock will be left over the coming weeks though.

Thanks guys ..

I tried to buy off newegg but that didn't work - an NZ credit card wouldn't work with their site..same with tiger direct.

Ended up buying an ASUS GTX 660 off amazon on sale for $240ish NZ. Can't wait to try it out :)
