8800GT Video Card Replacement

trunksu 449 20 November 9, 2015 at 06:54 PM
My 8800GT died on my Dell XPS 420. I do light gaming such as OSU, Minecraft, and some flash games. I'm trying to find an equivalent and my budget is below $75 as I don't want to put to much money in an old PC.

GT 730 has few version, that one has 96 CUDA cores, it uses more power because it rename from an older model

the GDDR5 version has 384 cores and consumes less power

this one $35 after rebate, it uses less power, so low profile doesn't matter www.microcenter.com/product/434683/GeForce_GT_730_1GB_GDDR5_PCIe_Low-Profile_Video_Card

*shouldn't only compare CUDA core numbers with different architecture, but i just look at the benchmark, the GDDR5 version is faster

Most modern cards even low end should be on par with that or better. The 8000 series was from 2006. I think looking at cards on rebate should be a good way to get a little better card for less.

Thanks everyone. I decided to go for a GeForce GT 730 Low Profile 1GB DDR3 PCI-Express Video for $50 + tax.
