So I know nothing about video cards. I want the most midrange card there is. Exactly the middle line between value/performance. What am I looking at here?
Please check the catalog before posting, there are lots of threads like your already.
There isn't one. The current market is pretty good from the bottom to the GTX 970 -- you don't get outrageous prices until above that. It really depends on what you have and what you want to spend.
Get your cancerous fucking waifu out of here.
Depends on where you live
If you live in murica or western jewrope there's no point in getting a mid-range card anyway, when a high end one only costs like $50 more.
Here 270 costs almost twice as much as a 265
