My first graphics card, has just recently been replaced by a GTX 1070. It held up fine for my needs even at 1440P. I mostly play FPS', and I didn't even have to play on total potato settings. Most of my time with it was spent at 1600x900, though.

This looks like one of the overall best cards from the 600 series and it's only $80-90 on EBay right now.

The 3gb version still holds it ground with C2Q and some Phenom II cpu's ;)
