If not can you point me to a better one in the same price range?

The choice of a gpu revolves around what you are looking to do.

The 7750 is the fastest card you can get that does NOT require an auxiliary power (6pin) connector. The 2gb of DDR5 on an entry level card probably not needed as the card itself would have trouble saturating the pcie lanes.

The 7790 is a fair step up, but does require a 6pin connector from your psu in order to operate.

What m/b are you using, what cpu, what psu and what are your "needs" for graphics?

He linked a 7770, wich also needs 6-pin connector. And he's just asking for a better card in the same price range :p

My bad - misread as 7750. I would still like the info from op to get a better idea of what HE wants.

I haven't bought anything yet, and gaming is what I want to be doing with it.
Any way here is what my build is looking like now. http://i.imgur.com/XeYzLQG.png

Also, what do you think about a 650 Ti boost?

This one to be exact. http://www.amazon.com/EVGA-GeForce-GTX650Ti-Dual-Link-G...

Edit: Sorry for not being clear guys, and thanks for all the help so far!

it is better to get nvidia at that price range, they recently had price drop for gpu under $200
i will go with this
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
performs almost similar with 7870


second this, didn't know the ti boost was that cheap over the pond :heink: 



Sorry to keep asking questions, I don't really know much about graphics cards.
Would this one be better for only 30 dollars more?

Your rig looks good, but you really don't need the ram with the spreaders - they just get in the way of your cooler. Also you should get a cpu cooler if you're going to game (guessing you want to overclock). Coolermaster Hyper 212 Evo is about the best bang for the buck.

If you are going to cough up for the 650Ti Boost (great card by the way), go another $30 and move up to the 660 - you can play with the bios and voltage on the 660 and up.

That being said, be careful how much heat you put into the 430 - make sure you have at least one more 120mm fan for exhaust and it would be good to get a second 120 for intake. That case is fairly small (have one) and the airflow needs all the help it can get.

u might want to know that radial/centrifugal fan used in EVGA is a bit noisy

How's it looking now? It comes out just under 700.

2 mistakes :
212 evo comes with good thermal paste, no need to buy separate paste
the ram is tall heatsink, it will have clearance issue with EVO. find a low profile heatsink one :)

Delete the arctic silver - the paste with the cooler is fine. Change the ram to low profile like THIS.

Happy gaming!
