Budget GPU Gaming at 1600x900

Hi guys im looking for a budget gpu that can play games at 1600x900

core i3-2120 3.3Ghz
Asus p8h61
nVidia 9500GT
500gb hdd
4GB ram
Windows 7 ultimate-64bit

  1. There's some good budget choices such as GTX 650 or 650Ti and HD 7770 that should be sufficient for your usage.

    Edit: HD 7850 is also a great choice but cost few extra dollars.
  2. can it play crysis 3 even in med settings? or Black Ops 2? Was thinking about 7770 but it is similarly priced with 550ti, is 7770 better?
  3. I suggest get gtx 650ti 1gb for that resolution.it will handle games pretty well and will last longer than hd 7770.while hd 7770 can litle struggle in coming up year as games are more demanding.raise the budget and get gtx 650ti.you will never regret later.
  4. HD7770 is a really solid basic card, the GTX550Ti is kinda similar but older.

    Given you've said you can go up to $175, I'd definitely be considering the HD7850 as they start at $160, and get a 2Gb version if you can.
    With that you'll be able to play the games you want with most of the settings turned up. Based on the benchmarks on this site you'll get around 40fps with the High detail preset in Crysis 3.
  5. Toms did a review and benchmark of Crysis 3 and Black Ops 2 on many different cards.
    Crysis 3 : http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/crysis-3-performance-benchmark-gaming,3451-5.html
    Black Ops 2 : http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/crysis-3-performance-benchmark-gaming,3451-5.html

    Personally, i'd go with 7770 since it's newer than 550ti.
  6. Well you have budget of $175 then get hd 7850 or gtx 650ti.no need to look at hd 7770.
  7. I found a inno 3d gtx 650 for only 125 will this suffice? but there is no ti :|
  8. Go for a 7850 if you can find one for $175 if not go for a 650 Ti
