$100 GTX 950 is a great budget card. Check out any RX 460 benchmark, and these win by as much as 20% in performance. As long as you have a 6 pin PCIe power connector, this is the better card hands down.

True - As long as it is an older game/dx11. So it depends on what is on your list, because in Doom / Total War and upcoming releases, the 460 may just be better.

Depends what sort of performance you need. If you're maxing out a low power build, go with the 950. If you are looking for the cheapest viable "gaming" GPU, the 750 Ti will play games on low-mid settings at 1080p.

It would take a DX12 driver miracle to completely make up the 20% performance, and I don't see the 460 dropping to $100 any time soon.

save longer and get a used 970 or 1060

neither of these cards can really perform with modern games.

Any recommendation on a low power card for an older PC to handle a 4K TV at native resolution at 60Hz with HDMI 2.0? (no display port on the TV)
No games, but watching video and standard PC stuff (surfing, MS office)

This is the cheapest card with an HDMI 2.0 port. It's 90watts TDP. But there are special GTX 950s that are only 75 watts TDP and don't use an external power connector, one of those might be best. The RX 460 is a little more expensive, newer, and is 75watts TDP.

Thanks. I think I saw one of those 'low power' ASUS GTX 950s a few days ago, but that also required a rebate and it wasn't clear on amazon whether it had a HDMI 2.0 port, so I didn't bite.

I'll put in a SD alert for GTX 950 and RX460...

Thanks for this info.
I don't know much about graphics cards, but some1 here recommended this card and I was looking for this.
I don't do games, but a HDMI 2.0 is important to me.
Can you or some1 here tell me what graphics cards currently have a HDMI 2.0?
Thanks.

the three new ones from AMD (RX 480, RX 470, and RX 460) and GTX 950 or higher from nVidia (950, 960, 970, 980, 980 ti, titan x, 1060, 1070, 1080)

I suggest you go with the gtx 950 even if you don't game. The performance it offers gives it a great price/value . As a comparison the geforce 8400 scores about 115 at $30 a gtx 950 scores ~5200 at $100 on a G3D benchmark testing.

Agree with what some other people have said. Based on my research, the GTX 950 has good performance/price and performance/power consumption ratios. I picked one up to game with for now, then to recycle into a 4K HTPC down the road when I get a new TV.
