I currently don't have a graphics card as my old one broke an old 2gb GeForce gtx

So I'm looking for a cheap temporary graphics card under $70 while I save up for an evga GeForce gtx 1070

I was looking at something like a gigabyte GeForce 710 for the time being

Is it worth it, or should I just wait

It was a pretty big downgrade going from my old GPU to the onboard graphics

You can get a GTX 570 for around 40 bucks. Maybe even with 4GB. Has a wider BUS and should be faster than a 710.

The Gtx570 should be around Gt740 performance.

If its temporary i would suggest the iGP, If you want something stronger just buy a decent GPU so you wont regret it if your main GPU dies, I would suggest something from the 5xx and 6xx series for nvidia and HD7xxx series for AMD.

I've got a GTX 770 2g card here that I'm going to be selling soon. If you are still looking, and I'm still looking for a buyer in a month or so, maybe we could work something out. I'm using it right now, and it runs every game i throw at it really well, but lacks the ability to really have any chance at the latest and greatest in gpu shredding games due to its small vram.

BUUT, I still vote to use the IGP if it is temporary.

Most games are locked at my refresh rate, while some newer titles struggle with max-medium settings(depending on the game).

last time i was in your position i went to a local hole in the wall computer parts place and asked for the cheapest pcie card available. he gave me a used nvidia something or other for $20 and it worked fine. got my screen to turn on so i could internet and check on my warranty for my real card. that's what i would do.
