    Default Best GFX card for 200?

    Basically what the title states. I'm looking to upgrade my PC a bit as I want to start recording/streaming while playing an assortment of games but at the current status, I can't do that without massive lag spikes. Would the GTX 760 be the best fit for 200$? I currently have a GTX 550ti which is decent at best.

    You'll need to specify what country you're from.

    The dollar sign or peso sign ($) is a symbol primarily used to indicate the various peso and dollar units of currency around the world.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dollar_sign

    Dollar (often represented by the peso and dollar sign $) is the name of several currencies, including those of Australia, Belize, Brunei, Canada, Hong Kong, Namibia, New Zealand, Singapore, Taiwan, the United States, and previously Zimbabwe. The U.S. dollar is the official currency of East Timor, Ecuador, El Salvador, Federated States of Micronesia, Marshall Islands, Palau, the Caribbean Netherlands, and for banknotes, Panama. Generally, one dollar is divided into one hundred cents.

    Gtx 760 is about $230 and for sure is the best card at that price range. Especially for GAMING. The only other one close to it is Radeon R9 270X but the 760 destroys it when u compare gaming benchmarks.

    $229.99 after $20.00 rebate card

    In the 200$ range I'd go with the 660TI it's like 40-50$ cheaper then the 760, while it only has 6% better performance. The 760 also uses more power and gets warmer. Just get a Evga OC version of the 660ti and you'll have a card that's better then the 760.

    In all honesty I know hardly anything about computer parts aside from "oh this one is better than this one because these people told me this". I found these 760s that are refurbished on Ebay and I was wondering if one of these would be fine? I've noticed there are different models(?) when it comes to GFX cards like Nvidia, EVGA, etc. even though they're all 760s. Which of these is known to be "better" than the other?

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/R-MSI-N760-2...item46221ec9e4

    That's the one I'm currently looking at.

    Also, what benefit does having higher G contain? (ie: 2G, 3G, or 4G DDR)

    R9 270x, which has about the same performance as a 760 but $30 cheaper. Its $200 with rebate. Btw $200 for a refurbished 760 is definitely not worth it. If you want an Nvidia card, go with EVGA if you want customer support. The higher the ram on a video card, the higher resolution you can game on without losing performance. 2GB is all you need atm if you're doing 1080p gaming.

    If you can cough up 250$ the r9 285 is dropping soon.
