hey guys..im planning to buy a good video card that can play games like starcraft 2, battlefield , farcry 3 at ultra/high settings (if possible) or above average settings, a friend of mine recommended this site is good site for building gaming pcs..
my processor would be an i3 series, (im still deciding on what processor to buy at my limited budget but i guess it would be an i3 2120 or 3210)
i would be having a 500w psu
thank you all

Best GPU for $150 would be a HD7790

As posted above, the 7790 or 650 ti is your choice. However, I want to point out those cards will not play some of those games on high/ultra. Those cards are entry cards. If you want to play games like BF3 on high/ultra, you will need to drop at least 250+ bucks on a card. (Based on 1920*1080 resolution)

You can probably get high/ultra on all those games on a 17" monitor. But you probably have a bigger monitor. What is its resolution?

HD 7870XT (~$230) > GTX 660 (~$200)> HD 7850 (~$170-180)> GTX 650 Ti Boost (~$160-180)> HD 7790 (~$150)> GTX 650 Ti (~$130-140)> HD 7770 (~$120)

Relative performance from the better performing to worse performing card. These prices can change depending on the price cuts, rebates etc but they are roughly like this. So there is the most suitable card depending on what you can afford to pay

In that price point, wait for the gtx 650 ti boost 1gb to come out. It is an excellent card for the price.

Starcraft will run on a gtx 650 non-ti on ultra with about 50 fps

its quite a bit worse than the Ti and the Ti Boost (which is quite a bit better than the Ti).
