I have a 5 year old computer with these specs :

 

-Intel i5 3570K 3.4GHz
-8GB DDR3 1600MHZ
-WD5002AALX 500GB CAVIAR BLACK SATA3
-Thermaltake 650 W
-Win 7 64 bit 

 

Recently after 5 years my Asus HD7850-DC2-2GD5-V2 2GB PCI-E died so i am looking for a budget replacement . (80-130 euros - which i believe is enough for this machine)
I mainly play WoT , Diablo3 and HS. Occasionally moba.

 

Thanks in advance.

GTX 1050 maybe? It's a bit over budget but reviews are mostly positive.

Ti is worth it yes, the 2GB extra vram and higher speeds will certainly help

Since you had AMD before, I'd eagerly suggest an RX 560 with 4GB of RAM,

something around 140-150€

I believe the 1050 (Ti) is a bit better

It is, AMD prices are currently inflated to hell because of miners the real price of the RX560 should be around €100 but lolminers ruined the market. also +1 on 4GB of VRAM. altho OP could look in the used market too, his old card was a HD7850 so if he can find something like a R9 270 or better for cheap he is is set realy.

Got mine (Rx480 Nitro) for €300 or so... so if I sell it on ebay or something I can make a profit on it? :amazed:

And that while using GPUs for bitcoin mining is inefficient from what I read...

no, you dont make profit anymore

the virtual coin you could mine - wasting energy galore - was "ethereum" and "zcoin" if I am informed correctly.

 

several "mining rigs" are for sale atm...
