Hi i all i currently have a radeon 4870 1gb asus, but im fed up of it crashing i believe its the catalyst drivers, it refuses to open completely now. Im a bit put off and want slightly something that will give me better performance now. Processor is a 965 / 8GB Ram. Prefferably from eBay. If there are any new decent options please let me know.

I know here is probabally no 'best card' for under this and that but please give me an option you think is best and ill see if there are any for sale.

Thanks. The only games i play are Dota 2 and occasionally some vid rendering.

maybe a 4870x2 best card i can find for that price wel it is just a tiny bit over it. or a 7750 witch uses a LOT less power than a 4870x2 but it is even a bit worse than just an old single 4870 and it costs just a bit less than a 4870x2. you could also search for something in the hd 5-68xx range. or an nvidia 560 or 650 or 460.

I think a GTX 560 ti or HD 6870 would be a good option to search for. They might go for a bit over £70 but you may find a bargain. If they are all too expensive drop down to the cards below that eg 6850 and 560 non ti.

Here's another one i just found, its a little over what i wanted to pay but he said he will do it for 70+delivery.

Worth it?

GTX560

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=27...

its a bit better than a 4890 but the 560 has dx 11 instead off dx 10 so i would go for it but i think there must be a 6850-70 for 70£ i just find it a bit much for it because i have seen 560ti's that where cheaper. but if you are sure than go for it.

this seems good but you don't know for shure if you are giong to get it or not: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/XFX-ATI-Radeon-HD-5870-/15102...


Just got this for 55 including delivery, it seemed like a good buy as the rest on ebay are about 70, seller claims to have also replaced thermal paste a few days ago.

According to hwcompare it should be a little better than my current card? Not too bad of a deal?

good deal really cheap for that card but it seems like it needs a clean

Yeah thats the only thing from some images they really make it worse than it looks so i tried to confirm with him if its in good condition he said 'yes' so i assume its just a clean it needs hopefully.
