Any help appreciated

Something around $150.00 price range that supports dual monitors.
No special needs
Not really a gamer but, I do play Simcity: Cities of Tomorrow sometimes.

My Motherboard: https://www.asus.com/us/Motherboards/P9X79_LE/specifications/

It should also support SLI in case I wanna get two of them down the road.

Cards around this price range I hear are hit and miss and I really don't wanna get a complete piece of crap.
Maybe a link to something off eBay? Or anywhere that takes Paypal.

Thanks!

hmm, looks nice!

I do wanna add another GPU down the road. I use to have 3 monitors.
A little one for security cameras, One for Tv and crap, and my 42 for working browsing whatever.
I had 3 a while back, before one of my 2 GPUs died and miss having it that way.

Or does this one support more than 2?
I guess I should have checked before writing this, eh? hehehe
 

Does it work

This thread says the Saphire is better but, not as popular.

Was just saying you need to watch for shipping, it may be different for you, but the shipping for me from what you linked was pretty much the same price as the card. Plus never know what you are getting with ebay, always gotta watch out and be careful.

Comparing the 4gb msi 570 to the 8gb sapphire also isn't the fairest contest, the clock on msi is actually a little higher for the 8gb model. The sapphire card simply has a superior cooler, which does make it a better option sure.
