I have a KVM setup with a GT610 on the host and a R9 390 on the guest. Looking for a relatively cheap upgrade for the host.
What I have issue with is the GT 610. Besides the age, watching videos on youtube at 1440p can sometimes be quite choppy so was looking at a quick cheap upgrade. The only “cheap” recent card I can find is a 1030 which I currently see for 80 to 100us depending on the model. Given the price of the card I just think it’s not worth it. I think I can spend a little more and get something that can actually game on the host as a bonus.
So on I went to ebay expecting to get an older GPU like a 480 around the 100US mark…boi was I wrong I am honestly a bit confused about the prices of used GPUs, they are nearly the same price as new ones and in some instances the bid goes higher than a new GPU…I probably just don’t have the patience to deal with bidding.
Anyway, anyone has any recommendations? Budget was around 100US but can stretch to 150 or so. I see some RX570 8GB and 1650 in this price range. Currently just perusing amazon and newegg, hit me up if you are aware of any sales or better GPU options.
Ideally I would like to upgrade to a 5700XT and use the r9 390 on the guest but that card is out of budget currently and don’t really want to spend that kind of cash given the current situation.
