Hi guys, just wanted to ask two quick questions.

I'm looking to replace my old GTX 750 TI 2gb GPU for some other one as the HDMI port stopped working. I don't need an expensive GPU as I hardly ever play any games, just mainly CSGO/PUBG.

Which one would be the best to go for?

ASUS GeForce GTX 1060 3GB Dual Fan OC (£90)

OR

Gigabyte NVIDIA GTX 960 4GB OC WINDFORCE (£80)

The other question is will any of these two cards fit my motherboard? As in if I just take out my old GPU and fit any one of these inside, it will work right? I can't remember the name of my motherboard, but I believe any card is compatible right?

Thank you! :)

yes you can fit any gpu on to your motherboard, two things to bear in mind - the size of the gpu, will it fit in your case? and your power supply is it powerful enough to provide power to the gpu

do you have your specs?

are they both used?
Yes they're both used.

I can't exactly remember the specs. I'll check that later on - been ages since I've bought the PC and just forgotten the specs 😁
 
A GTX 1060 3GB should usually be significantly faster than a GTX 960. Either would draw more power from your PSU under load than your 750 Ti though, so you would want to make sure the PSU has enough capacity along with PCIe power cables.

Depending on how pricing is in your area, it might also be worth considering buying a new Radeon RX 570, which might potentially not cost much more, and offers similar performance to the 1060 3GB, though with more VRAM. Those draw a bit more power still under load though.

Yeah, you might wanna consider a 570 like cyroburner said, but if you can afford to spend more i would go for a rx 580 8gb, but if not then the 1060 or the rx 570

Thanks for the replies. I don't really want to spend a lot on a graphics card. The ones that I wanted to compare are the gtx 1060 3gb and the gtx 960 4gb as they're around the £100 mark used in my area, and was wondering which one was better.

1060 is 60% better
so go for that one! it worth extra $

p.s: i am using 1030 (almost same as 750ti), about Pubg, what FPS/setting u got? i wonder if i should consider buying the game

I'm not too sure how much FPS I get buddy. Didn't check to be fair. Runs fine on low settings.

do you have your specs?
The motherboard is a Gigabyte H81M-S2H.

I don't think I'll bother with used cards. I'll just order something online up to £200. Is the Dual GTX 1060 3GB OC good or should I go for something better?

or 1050Ti 4GB OC maybe?

I need help :tearsofjoy: 1080 is too expensive.

i would personally go with an amd gpu - rx 570 4gb or for higher budget rx 580 8gb, but if you want to have a nvidia gpu then i would say 1060 3/6gb , if you can spend some more go for the newly released 1660ti which is equivalent to a 1070.

The 1050Ti is an option but I feel its a bit outdated, but still a good option depending on what games you play.

You can compare gpu's with this website: https://gpu.userbenchmark.com/
or you could search on youtube for benchmarks "[gpu 1] vs [gpu 2]"

However, i cant say anything without seeing your cpu, and ram.

My budget is about £200. I don't want to spend more as I don't really play that much so there's really no sense.

CPU - i7-4790 @ 3.60GHz
RAM - 8GB

i would go for a rx 580 8gb, is future proof with 8gb vram, performs slightly better than the 1060 6gb in some games and comes under £200 new

I never bought AMD, that's the issue. I know I'm not going to be using it often, but I was always after Nvidia :(
