Diamond Boost AMD R7 250 PCIE 1GB 128-Bit GDDR5 Graphics Card - $46.50 Free shipping

here is a cheap budget card for some more casual games, its a older card and will probably struggle with intensive modern titles but its selling at a good price considering all of the crypto-mining affecting the prices of current cards

Ok deal if you absolutely need something for video out or a spare for testing.

Edit: beat u to it gt710, for 42$ after a rebate, though I still stand by my statement.

Its Not a Fantastic deal but its pretty good considering microcenter is selling this same card for $105 and you cant find these cards hardly anywhere (because of the age) but for someone like me who owns a AMD APU its a option for a pretty cool casual /(Ubuntu RetroPie) system supporting Dual Graphics, but its a old brand new card for $50 and I cant find a better new card for that price right now

Every graphics card you install in a computer will have fresh drivers. If you are just using it for what you suggested there are options for much less than $50.

At this price point, you are better off buying a used card or a more powerful older card. Not much point to buying the newest series weakest cards when cheaper, more powerful cards already exist,

​RetroPie games/systems can run on a Raspberry Pi, hence the name, and those cost less than $50, let alone that much for a single part. Majorly overkill to run any game made before 2000 on an emulator.

As I said before, the point wasn't buying the best card. It's something that can be used used for testing or to fit in a system with limited expansion.

Should not be long and the vid card dump is going to happen. Profitability/power keeps dropping a percent or two every other day! Hashrates going up, rigs are not going to be worth running.

True unless you want to run N64, GC, Wii, Saturn, Dreamcast, PS2, PSP, Jaguar and others at a stable frame rate, none of those consoles will run on a raspberry pi and this isn't a deal I posted for people to please hardcore pc gamers its a casual budget option
