So 580Gtx has stopped working. I can still see video without the drivers installed.

 

I am in the market for a video card..

 

A friend is selling his ATI 270X for 100

 

Somone else is selling his 680 gtx  for $299? ain' t that little pricey since newegg has a deal for 770 Gtx for $313 with $20 rebate for $293

 

I am thinking of going for the newegg deal..

 

I use the card on 30" inch dell

 

I am tempted to go for the $100 card but I am afraid of having driver issues and card going bad..

 

Any ideas recommendations would help..

280x runs around $250..

 

I mean I had gtx 580 after like 4 months  after it released so it has lasted for 3 years. I dont want to spend on the 680 and go bad on me again..

 

Are 270X good or should I go for the 770Gtx?

Newegg has the Sapphire 280x for $239, I would go that route.  NCIX has the Club3D 280x for $249.  I got the XFX280X for $229.99 a few weeks ago and

I'm really liking it.  The cheapest 770 GTX is $310 at NCIX.

I'd go for the 280x the 770 is just too much more for essentially the same performance.

No warranty left on the 580?

Just get a model with a longer warranty period then lol, not all 280x's will have 2 years of warranty

 

I'd go with the 770, strong card, better warranty, and no amd driver issues. jmho :teehee:

No problems here... the 280x is equal to better with technically more potential and is much cheaper. And as said above, just get a 280x with a better warranty if that's a concern
