    Default Advice: looking to upgrade

    Hey guys, I'm looking to upgrade from a GTX 550 TI to something better. I was wondering if you guys had some suggestions as to what to look into. Price range is 100-200$.

    I was kinda looking at this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-024-_-Product but if you guys happen to know of something better within that price range, let me know.

    Thanks a bunch

    The new nvidia generation is getting out end this may so you might want to wait for those 2 weeks. Price drops on older generation cards etc.

    What are the rest of your specs? What's the main use?

    My initial advice is to get an amd 380x or a geforce 960. Getting a 750ti will not do any good. It's prolonging the pain at best.

    I should update this but all my effort went into writing this lousy excuse.

    i7 3770 3.4GHz, 16GB DDR 3 RAM. It runs all the stuff I usually play fine, such as Warframe, but I'm thinking about getting BDO and might need something a lil better. The 960 looks good and is within my range, so I'm aiming for that now. I mostly game, but don't really stream or record much, though if I could do that relatively smooth that'd be cool, if not *shruggles*.

    Shoot, bro what I'm using now is well beyond dated lol. The 750 is actually significantly better than the 550 I'm using now according to benchmarks. But now that I look at that 960 SnOwBunZz suggested, that's way better than the 750 and a huge jump from the 550 I'm using, and within the price range I listed for a slightly higher amount. I wouldn't mind getting the 970 and I actually saw that, but tbh I really don't need that for what I play + I need to buy some other stuff. Not a bad suggestion though thanks.

    So far looks like the 960 is what I'ma go with.
