Need to Replace my dead GPU

Hello,


I have "ASUS Sabertooth Intel P67 (REV B3) Socket 1155 DDR3 PCI-Express" motherboard and my "GIGABYTE GTX 570 GV-N570OC-13I" has decided to die on me. I need a new graphic card that would work on the same motherboard and Windows 10. Can you anyone give me an example of an equal or better graphic card for my motherboard that is on low budget £70-120.

I am at a complete loss on what card I would need, that would work on my old motherboard, yet still provide a similar or better performance when it comes to new graphic cards. My motherboard has PCIe 2.0 and not latest 3.0.


Model and link to UK store, would be appreciated.


Thank you for any help

You can find used RX470's(functionally equivalent to the 570's really) to RX480/580's in that price range nowadays if you were looking 2nd hand, probably the best value you'd get. You might want to go for an 8GB one if not too much more.

RX470:

It says PCI-E 3.0. Would that still work fine on my motherboard which is only PCI-E 2.0?


Thanks

Yeah they're all forwards & backwards compatible standards in terms of functionality.

Sorry to bother you again; the link you gave shows it is a "Mining Edition" and the images does not show it having any DVI ports. I am guessing these are cards used in a farm or something.

Thanks I will be keeping out for an RX 470.

Yeah those were just examples I'd check yourself for actual models as they appear and go every few days, you'll find some good deals on full cards often, although mining cards are ok if you don't want/need the extra video outputs, mining loads usually put much less stress on the silicon than a gaming load would for instance(As it's generally a constant load so there's no thermal cycling and they're often setup optimised for power efficiency to keep the profits high which on Polaris is optimal around the 160W mark so they'd run relatively cool too)
