    New "cheap" graphics card

    To make this short, I need a new graphics card:

    Current setup:
    Win7 x64
    i5 760 2x 2.8GHz
    ~12 GB RAM
    To be replaced: GTX-460

    What i want:
    Some card i will likely have no problems (driver etc.) with (kind of important)
    Price: ~100-150
    Games: Nothing particular

    Feel free to give as many explanations and suggestions as possible as to which card I should buy.

    Regards

    Radeon R7 265
    or
    Radeon R9 270 on sale.

    IDK about Austria's sales taxes, the R9 270 might be to expensive with tax.

    Radeon R7 265
    http://www.amazon.de/SAPPHIRE-Radeon...dp/B00IN71T34/
    132 Euro

    Radeon R9 270
    http://www.amazon.de/Sapphire-11217-.../dp/B00FL8H49Q
    156 Euro

    So, both acceptable price.
    Since I did have little problems with Nvidia and some with Radeon, do you think Ill have problems with them? Which one should I get?

    I'd say it mostly depends on what you play, i'd go with the mid-grade myself if I were to upgrade

    I found an ASUS GTX 760 for 162 euros. That's not much more than the R9 270 that Lito posted. Nvidia is offering a free copy of Watch Dogs for however much that matters.

    The GTX 760 is a decent bit better than the Radeon R9 270.

    I have an ASUS GTX 680 and I love it.

    Steeps has problems reading German numerals...
    He linked to the GTX660, which is not the GTX760.

    It's understandable, German is a hard language to learn.

    Oh... well shit. How did I manage that.

    Well... if you want to pony up a little, I found a 760 for 199 euros.

    Pricewatch.com might help, not sure if it will help internationally though.
