Pc to run Autocad and Call of Duty mw3 & BO2

Need help choosing a graphic card for a new build I'm trying. Here are the parts I have so far.
Processor : AMD FX 6300 3.5ghz
Motherboard : MSI AMD 760GM-P23 FX
Case : Thermaltake V9 BackX Ed.
Ram : Kingston 8gb DDR3
Power supply : Thermaltake 500w
Optical drives : One (cheap) DVD-RW
Hard drive : Toshiba 1TB HDD
Graphic card : 'Not exceeding $150 US.'

Only the graphic card to choose now.I live outside the United States so trying to buy locally but if I have to I would be willing to ship maybe a different motherboard and the graphic card.
Also trying to keep total under $600 US. The less the better.
If I do order I prefer Amazon.

OK thank for the input. The next question is will the 500W Power supply be enough when the graphic card (7790) is under load?

  1. Look at GTX 650ti. Its a pretty good card for around that price range.

    Here is the GPU you should be looking at: http://www.amazon.com/Gigabyte-HD7790-GDDR5-1GB-Graphics-GV-R779OC-1GD/dp/B00C132Y9Y/ref=sr_1_13?s=pc&ie=UTF8&qid=1364945315&sr=1-13&keywords=7790

    fits perfectly in the budget and performs fantastic for the price. It is much better than a 650ti to boot.

    Even though they have the same specs?

    Same specs don't mean same performance :P

  5. Here are a couple benchmarks, specs do not matter (they are not even closely related), they are TOTALLY different GPUs... please get information form a variety of sources to confirm what you say:

    Do I have to give more proof that this is the better card?
