--APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: (e.g.: this week (the closer the better)) BUDGET RANGE: (e.g.: USD $150-250) Before / After Rebates

Purchase date is as soon as I get an answer. My budget range is up to $150.

--USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: (e.g.: Gaming [and what games you want it to play - a card for WoW only will be much different than one for Crysis or Metro 2033 at full settings], Folding@Home, home theater/watching movies)

I would like to use it mostly for gaming. Games I would like to play for example would be Planetside 2 on medium settings or low is also fine if my medium request can not be granted.

--CURRENT GPU AND POWER SUPPLY: (e.g., ATI Radeon HD 4850 and Corsair 750TX 750W PSU - without this info, it's really hard to help you)

Current GPU is a 64MB GeForce 6150SE nForce 430 while my power supply is 300w.

--OTHER RELEVANT SYSTEM SPECS: (e.g., make/model of CPU, MoBo, memory - this can help us determine whether or not a given card is compatible with and makes sense for your system. For high-end cards, knowing your case/cooling setup may also be helpful)

My CPU is an AMD Phenom X4 9150e Quad-Core processor. My motherboard is an ECS Nettle3 and I have 4 GB of RAM.

--PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: (e.g.: newegg.com, ncix.com -- to show us selection & pricing) COUNTRY OF ORIGIN: (e.g.: Grand Fenwick)

The preferred website is where I can get the card for the least. I come from the United States of America.

--PARTS PREFERENCES: (e.g., if you will only use ATI cards, want PhysX card, prefer XFX cards over Sapphire cards, etc., tell us)

I have no preferences.

--OVERCLOCKING: Yes / No / Maybe SLI OR CROSSFIRE: Yes / No / Maybe

No overclocking, SLI or Crossfire.

--MONITOR RESOLUTION: (e.g.: 1024x768, 1280x1024, 1440x900, 1600x1200, 1680x1050, 1920x1080, 1920x1200)

My monitor resolution is 1280x1024 pixels.

--ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: (e.g.: Need to have better than stock cooling; Want a card with a lifetime warranty; Must run Crysis with full AA on a three-display setup, etc.)

It must have OpenGL support.

Thank you for taking the time to read this and have a nice day.

HD 7790 or GTX 650 Ti Boost (1GB)

Quote:
At launch, the 2 GB model is going to cost $170 and enjoy immediate availability. Furthermore, company representatives let us know that there's a 1 GB version coming in early April that'll sell for $150. Mixing things up even more, the GeForce GTX 650 Ti should be getting knocked down to somewhere between $115 and $130 with rebates....

With the Radeon HD 7770 at $120, Radeon HD 7790 at $150, and Radeon HD 7850 above $180, Nvidia is rendering all three products ineffectual at their respective price points.


That tells me price drops coming.
