Best DX11 video card under $100?

February 12, 2012 at 09:12:54
Specs: Windows 7, 4 GB
My old video card (ATI 2600 HD) is incompatible with Battlefield 3, so it's time to upgrade.

Please let me know what is the best video card (DX11) I can get below $100.

My MOBO is Asrock G41M VS3 R2.0 and my monitor is DELL 1280x1024.

Right now my bet is a Sapphire Radeon HD 6570 which is $65, maybe too good to be true...

Do you have a decent power supply that can handle the added load of a gaming card? The Radeon HD 6670 w/DDR5 memory is the best card you can get that doesn't require the aux 6-pin PCIe power connection. They go for about $75 after rebate:

If you have a decent PSU & are willing to spend a little more, look for a deal on the HD 5770 or HD 6770:

Here's some rough comparisons:

My PSU is 600W, will that work for the Raddeon HD 6670?

It has an awfully lot of unnecessary amperage (43A) on the +5v rail, which means the PSU is probably closer to being a 500W than 600W, but 36A on the +12v rail is good. It should be OK.

DX 11 = Very High settings
Don't expect to run battlefield 3 well using dx11 with above listed video cards.
