Hey, Im looking to buy a new GPU as my old AMD Radeon 6850's fan is making a weird grinding noise which I tried to lubricate but it didn't help.
The fan itself is very loud when gaming so a quiet unit is in high priority. I was thinking to buy a nvidia card as some people recommend it over AMD's, but im actually quite clueless of the cards.
The games im playing are mostly Call of duty 1, CS:GO, Virtual pool 4, Battlefield 1942, Neverwinternights etc...
I'm ready to pay around 120€-160€ for the card so any recommendations/help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance


Specs
Mobo: Gigabyte ga-z77m-d3h
HDD: 2x Seagate Barracuda 1tb and 2tb (new Samsung SSD 860EVO is on its way)
Memory: Adata 2x 4gb DDR3 1333mhz + 2x G.Skill 4gb DDR3 1333mhz (on their way) so 16Gb total
CPU: Intel i5 3570k 3.40 GHz
GPU: Amd Radeon 6800 series (6850)
Power: Corsair 400W

I don't know if this is close enough to your budget but a GTX 1060 3GB can handle these games at medium high settings. You can buy one around £150 (no idea how much that is in euros) and if it's too much I recommend a GTX 1050 Ti or a normal 2GB.

Alright I will check those out, though the GTX 1060 3GB would be around 210eur and thats a bit too much for me...
Should I take something like TDP into account when choosing a GPU? I mean my power is 400watt, does that limit something?
The GTX 1050 2GB and Ti needs a minimum of 350w so you should be fine. Also, if you can't afford those then you might want a GTX 1030 which was released for budget gaming.
 
Don’t get the 1030. It’s not considered a gaming card, it’s really best suited to pc’s that don’t have integrated gpu’s and need something for a display. This is also part of the naming as it’s a GT and not a GTX.

A 1050Ti would be a good option. This probably isn’t the same quality as the MSI you linked but I doubt you would even know https://www.aria.co.uk/Products/Components/Graphics+Cards/NVIDIA+GeForce/GeForce+GTX+1050+Ti/Palit+GeForce+GTX+1050+Ti+StormX+4GB+Graphics+Card+?productId=66810

Im probably getting a MSI GTX 1060 6gb, I will try some bitcoin/etherum mining with this...
Hope it will pay back the price
