Hello,
I am looking to upgrade my 550ti and was looking at a couple of alternatives arround the 150/160€ budget.

The cards I found were(links are in Pt but pasting for reference, sorry):

Gigabyte HD5850 - A tad cheaper than the rest - http://bit.ly/12OkWKk
Asus GTX650TI - Mid way throught the alternatives, and right on the budget mark - http://bit.ly/11YTQS6
Asus HD7770 (2GB) - A tad more expensive - http://bit.ly/11YU3og

I would like some advice on which card to go for as I can't make up my mind, mainly because of those 2GB of VRAM.

My CPU is the FX-6100;
Intended resolution : 1360x768;

Thanks in advance.

I would go for the Asus GTX650TI - Mid way throught the alternatives, and right on the budget mark - http://bit.ly/11YTQS6 because I don't think THE 2GB gets useful anything less than 1080p and a 7850 level card.

That was what I intended to go for. Just wanted to be sure that I wasn't wasting money.
Thank you for your answer.

650TI and 5850 are supposed to be equal in performance with each other. But the 650TI will use less power. With those as your options I'd probably get the 650TI.

Here in the USA the 7850 is usually the better card to get. That one to much? The 1GB model is fine.

I see this is solved, but want to drop 2 cents for anyone in the future.

I would avoid the 5850 for sure, just due to its age(its tessellation performance is honestly not that good.). For older games it may well be faster, but with newer games it starts to loose some of its edge.

It is a tad out of my reach. But thanks for answering, found a 650Ti on Amazon nice and cheap.
