Needing an inexpensive video card

by Savage_87 / June 20, 2013 8:38 AM PDT

Hey everyone I have a Nvidia 9800 GT video card that recently went out and I'm looking for a little more of an upgrade from that but nothing major. I don't want to have to spend over $100 it was a great video card while I had it but I'm looking for something to replace it so I can get back to playing some games such as Guild Wars 2 and would like to be able to play BF3. Thanks in advance!

Thanks I found what I needed on the next page and it shows the Radeon 7750 at $95 and the 6670 at $65. Does it require much to go from Nvidia to Radeon?

For me, hardly a problem.

I unplug the old, plug in the new and install the drivers off the supplied CD. I do that before I consider any downloads.

After that I look in the usual add/remove programs (varies with the OS!) and uninstall any old Nvidia item I feel needs to go.

There are those that want it cleaned. Sorry, I have yet to bother with that as I need to use my PC.
