Hello guys,

 

Recently my current GPU (ATI RADEON HD6850) has gone bad and i will propably replace it.

 

My PC specs are:

CPU: AMD Phenom II X6 1055T

Mobo: ASRock 970 Extreme3

RAM: Corsair Vengeance 8 GB (2x4 GB) DDR3 1600 MHs

 

So i am looking for a GPU with same or higher performance to my current one that fits my system but not exceeding my system specs limitations.

 

Any suggestions will be very helpfull!

 

Thanks in advance !

I think patriot is referring to case.  What case do you have?  If you have a normal sized mid-ATX case or even a Full ATX case, most GPU's are available to you, but if you have a small case, some GPU's may not fit.  How much are you willing to spend?

 

Two recommendations:

 

EVGA GeForce GTX 950 DirectX 12 02G-P4-1956-KR 2GB - A basic card, decent performance and price.

GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 960 4GB WINDFORCE 2X OC EDITION - More powerful than a GTX 950.

 

I suggest these cards over AMD due to lower heat and lower power draw.  Both are more powerful than Radeon 6850.

OH ok, thanks for the clarification my case is medium-sized i do not remember the brand or model. The GPU slot is quite spacey and not blocked by anything so size is not a problem in my case. I am wiiling to spend about 150-200 € (170-230 $).

Yes I meant case, sorry phone auto fail got me again. Both those cards are solid, if you still wanted to remain AMD their new R9 380 is a solid card, mines a sapphire nitro 380 I paid right at $200 for and am very impressed with its performance, though it is a bit of a power hog.

If you are in Europe, I'm not sure which retailers are available to you, but the Nvidia GTX 950 or GTX 960 would be excellent cards.
