I build a PC 5 years ago and the GPU has packed up. I am looking for advice on a new GPU to buy, as I am not yet ready to replace the rest of the PC (financially).

Looking for a like-for-like GPU swap, though I am sure for a little more £££ I could get a decent upgrade.


ASRock Z68 Extreme4 mobo
i7 2600K mildly overclocked
3x4GB DDR3 memory

Broken GPU:

ASUS GeForce GTX 570 (was fed by 6+8 power supply sockets)

I found a refurbished GTX 570 for £85. I also saw a NVIDIA GTX 750 Ti for £115, which sounds like a decent upgrade. Will it work (I assume PCI-E 3.0 is backward compatible?)

Any other suggestions or advice very welcome. I am very behind on knowledge of current hardware.

PCI 3.0 is backward compatible.

The GTX 750 Ti is a solid card.

What is your budget?

How are you using the PC / Graphics?
