this are my specs:

CPU - AMD A10 5800k (APU)
Motherboard - BIOSTAR Hi-Fi A85W
Memory - 8gb g.skill ripjaws ( 2x4gb )
Psu - Corsair 430w
Hard drive - Seagate Barracuda 2tb
Case - Corsair Carbide Series 300R

my graphics card budget is $50 to $100

I'm mostly looking to improve my gaming/editing/rendering/livestreaming Experience on my computer any tips on improving that ?

i know the 7770 requires a 500w supply, something lacking with 430w. you may need to upgrade your PSU as well.

No point in using a 7770 as a dedicated card. What you should do is buy a 7750 and do hybrid crossfire with the dedicated graphics in the APU. This will get you more power than disabling the integrated graphics and using a 7770.

Unless something has changed, the 7750 and above does not support AMD's "dual-graphics" with its current APUs. Again, unless something has changed, the highest card that the A10-5800k can be configured with "dual-graphics" is the Radeon 6670. If you still want to take advantage of the graphics part of your APU, you need to use a Radeon 6670. The combination will give you somewhere near 7750 performance in games that can take advantage of CrossFire. Otherwise you should use a more powerful single card like the 7770. And that Corsair 430 can *probably* handle a 7770. From AMD: http://www.amd.com/us/products/technologies/dual-graphi...

I apologize. I had read multiple places that you could do it with the 7750 but I cannot find it anymore, so I guess the people that tried it didnt make it work.

Get the Asus HD6670 1GB GDDR5. It is recommended by AMD for this purpose, it's cheap and it comes with a DIRT 3 download voucher.

the 6670 is the top rated card you can create the hybrid crossfire with [ if I remember correctly]

so yeah

BUY A 7770 , and have better graphics performance . It will run perfectly well on the 430 watt psu .
