Thread: Need Help Deciding

  1. #1

    Default Need Help Deciding

    Good morning everyone,

    I hope you are all doing well.

    So my GT210 went on a permanent vacation Saturday night while i was playing Hearthstone.
    After my PC froze and gave me almost 8 bit colors and 640x400 resolution i decided to switch off my pc.

    Sunday morning i opened it up and cleaned my GVA card and CPU cooler again and started to check what the issue could be, i tried the card again, same result. Tried new drivers, same result. went over to onboard and its working fine, so it seams to be the card.

    By some Christmas miracle my wife gave me the go-ahead to get a new card that is sub - R1000

    I was wondering if someone with more hardware know-how can perhaps help me make my decision.

    Contestant #1 -- MSI Radeon R7 240, 2GB, DDR3, Express 3.0 / alt shop

    Contestant #2 -- MSI GeForce GT 730 Gaminig ITX Graphics Card - 2GB GDDR3 128 bit

    Contestant #3 -- Gigabyte Nvidia GT 730 Graphics Card - 2GB

    then of course there is always #4 but only if budget allows - MSI AMD Radeon R7 250 1GB GDDR5 OC Graphics Card

    I would appreciate any input.

    Option 4 is definitely best bet.

    If we can get a Christmas pool going I'll happily contribute to help you get that R7 250, basically R50 from 3 other people. Any takers?

    Thanks Everyone something to think about, and much appreciated.

    BeoTek - I would have loved that card but then i would need to upgrade my PSU as well, currently i have a standard 450W PSU, not strong enough.

    Check with Joker, but I don't think k it's THAT power hungry. What else you have in your machine?

    I might be able to get you a Gigabyte 7850 for a good price.
    R100 more than your budget which I'll gladly pay in.

    Should run perfectly on your setup and its a decent 2GB gaming card.
