there is a major differance between 660ti and 650 ti. so i recommend getting the 660 ti.you can get maybe radeon HD 7870XT or maybe 7950. im not sure

What resolution is your monitor? What kind of power supply do you have? CPU?

Intel core i7 3770
12 gigs ram
450w psu i guess not sure
and resolution is 1366*768 and sometimes 1920*1080

It's quite important that you find out what PSU you have before dumping a new GPU in your machine.

For example, a high quality 500W PSU will generally outperform a cheap nasty "650W" PSU.

Open up your machine, read the sticker on the PSU and report back is my advice.

450watt wont cut it.expecially generic PSU. and what do you means by "resolution is 1366*768 and sometimes 1920*1080"?

So you have a 1080p monitor, but you do not always play games at 1080p?

I agree, you will want to get a Seasonic, Corsair, or Antec PSU. They are great brands in that order respectively. I'd go with this one if you are planning to only ever run one GPU in your machine. http://amzn.to/125SWB1

I'm a big fan of the 7950 http://amzn.to/10jnaPv as I have 2 of them. =) They overclock really well. The 7870 XT http://amzn.to/11R8RrF is also a great card and costs less. I've heard they can overclock to rival a 7950.


yes, apparently they are just a stirpped down version of a 7950 so 7870XT is a good choice if you want the best bang for buck

Sorry guys about the 1366*768 resolution :( 
I have a 1080p monitor
but i had to play some games in that resolution
Sorry about that
I have a B75M-D3H mobo
so can it handle a 690 or 7970 or 660ti :/

yep easily but if you are gonna go top end i recommend using a well branded PSU of atleast 600watts. though i wouldnt recommend gettings 690 unless you got way too much cash. get a 660ti or a 7970Ghz edition if you want it to be future proof.
