I don't need a beast of a videocard. I'm considering the R7 360, or the 750ti.
Which one /g/? and which manufacturer?
Playing on integrated graphics sucks, games have graphical glitches. I have tested both HD3000 and HD4600 and they can't render certain things.
I plan to buy from amazon but I don't live in america, I'd rather get something new just in case.
Aren't used cards prone to abuse? Like mining and running under cases with bad airflow? I don't want them to die or have 100% RPM fans all the time.
1. Budget is a maximum of $130.
2. KOTOR 1 and 2, rFactor 2.
I would love to buy used but since my integrated graphics' driver is crashing on me I'd rather just have something that will work. Plus this is my last chance in the whole year to order something from the United States.
>Aren't used cards prone to abuse?
It depends. I got all my used cards from Microcenter.
One had coil-whine (100% working condition tho) and the other was perfect. You just gotta try them and return them within 30 days.
Literally nobody would have been mining Buttcoins on any of those GPUs. It's only used 290/290Xs that you really need to watch out for. There's absolutely nothing wrong with buying used from reputable sellers, preferably with pictures.
Can't return so I'd rather just get something tried and true. The 750ti has over a thosand mostly positive reviews.
That's good to know, there seems to be some deals on ebay but nothing mind blowing.
Get a used HD 4890 on ebay. They are only 20$ and will max older games at good FPS and 1080p.
My old VAPOR-X 4890 2gb is quiet as any other modern card. I still use it in my media center.
If you value your freedoms, choose AMD. Nvidia doesn't look like they're even pretending to give a shit anymore, meanwhile amdgpu is out so you can expect massive improvements in mesa drivers under Linux.
Also they don't require you to log in to update your fucking driver.
I like freedoms. I am also a poor student, with only two monitors one with vga and another with dvi output.
Say a card has a DVI-i and a DVI-D inputs, can I run my two monitors? (the vga with an adapter of course)
750ti is superb choice, and very low power.
It actually does not require external 6-pin connectors, at all. Yet, it can run games like GTA5 at 1080p, Very High pre-sets, and clock good 35fps average.
I want to tell you yes because that'd make sense, but I can't say for sure since I don't have first-hand experience. I know my old-ass HD5830 handles dual monitors just fine, but I'm using HDMI and a DVI-HDMI adapter so I don't really know.
Sorry I can't be of more help m8.
FTW is better for overclocking. Only real difference. If you're not playing anything later than early 2013 you can do pretty much anything at max with any 750Ti. 950, if it's within budget, might be worth looking at too. Other than that, possibly R9 270 from AMD, which is in between those two.
You can get an R9 285 on eBay for like $110-120 used, and that card is an absolute tank for what you'll pay for it, as despite being a budget card, it has the same GPU found in the Fury series, minus the fact it was cut-down considerably for the price bracket it goes for, but you get the same video and compute benefits, assuming you're into Chinese cartoons on a MadVR setup
In the case I get a shitty abused card I can't return it. A friend is going to bring it for me.
Never understood those filters, will they basically work on any media besides animu? Sounds interesting.
many people offer returns on ebay within 14 days. the card either works or it doesn't. if you got it all you would need to do is load up some stress tests and monitoring software and test it out. any problems should be obvious.
Any video that needs upscaling to your native resolution, yeah. It works the same way any traditional upscaler works, with a huge choice of scalers to use, as they mostly depend on how powerful your GPU is. A Spine/Jinc combo is good enough for most people, but NNEDI3 is flavor country if you have the horsepower
As a former 285 owner, you could easily do a 4-tap Jinc/Jinc/Catmull-Rom configuration with dithering and smooth motion easy, but NNEDI3 would be pushing it
