So after 4 years my gpu dies sapphire r9 270 2gb, i need help figuring out what graphic card to buy now on budget. Also keep in mind i live in one messed up country so prices on imported stuff are overpriced example controller you can get for 15-20$ here cost 60 eu. Here are 2 sites that you can see some limitations and my options i can probably try to find some another stuff to another PC stores in my near by town since i live in village. https://www.gigatron...astuci&strana=3   http://www.winwin.rs...ke-kartice.html. My price range is max 400-450 and maybe 500 but keep in mind mainly 400 EU would prefer to stay to 200 or under if possible. Would appreciate if someone could help me out picking out GPU that is equal or better then one i had.  Also not sure when i'm gonna get it i'm using integrated GPU atm and like i said i'm broke and in between jobs(Meaning i ain't job). Forgot to mention my CPU is i5 4690k .

Even GTX1050 2GB would be better than your previous GPU, but it's not worth buying really. If you want to be somewhat futureproof I'd suggest getting at least GTX1050Ti 4GB, eg. https://www.gigatron...ming_x_4g-96755

If you can spend more, then there are RX580 8GB and GTX1060 6GB:

http://www.winwin.rs...it-6829295.html

That's all assuming your power supply is up to the job.

Thank you for reply, my friend might send me r9 290x since he is using ASUS Rog STRIX Radeon 480 8gb 2x . But it's not 100% sure because if shipping cost to much ill just buy something that i can find here. Last time he sent me xbox controller he paid 80$. Also my PSU is 750w. Forgot to mention is mobo is kinda small so that also might be a issue.

roughly $80 (i can't see it being much higher to ship a gpu) for an r9 290x is very good price to performance, obviously a 4gb 290x isn't as good as say a 1060 6gb but you're getting it at a fraction of the 1060s cost plus it'll be a fair upgrade from a 2gb 270.

I decade to go with msi gtx 1060 3gb it's 100 more eu expensive then gtx 1050 ti but i watched ton of videos and benchmarks are good. My friend gpu said he is gonna fix it or find another one i rather just buy new one.

I'm not really convinced if 3GBs of VRAM is gonna cut it in the long term. If that forces you to lower the settings (and it will), you might as well get the GTX1050Ti.

I changed mind and gonna go for 6gb one but im really tempted to buy 1050 ti since i have money for it but for 1060 6gb ill need to wait till my bday. There is also question of bottleneckcing since my cpu is i5 4690k

i5-4690k is still a good CPU, so don't worry.
