Hello, I can NOT decide what I want for my gpu, I have a 520 watt antec psu and I have a budget of 300 $

Cpu-i5 2400
ram- 8 gig ripjaws
mobo- Z75
case- CM HAF 912

my build ^

Now, what I want this build to do is play SKYRIM with the K-enb mod and others installed. with around 40-50 fps if that's possible. Will need card with alot of VRAM

Also I want to be able to play rome 2 total war on ultra (imperative)

and I also want to be able to play gta 5 on ultra

None of these want's however are going to be played with shadows on ultra or MSAA X 4 or w.e just ultra settings no AA or other BULLSHIT.

I was looking at the 7950 OC 3 gig but I dont know if it is powerful enough. I am upgrading from a rusty old 6790.

The 7950 is well over powerful enough. 3 gigs of ddr3 vram will run most games and with an overclocked core speed its icing on the cake.

Antialiasing is BS? That's news to me. :p 

But that being said, Gam3r01 got it right in one - the 7950 is what you want. It's also what you can get in that price range.

Best way to tell is look at hair, or parts of clothing, that are thin and next to each other. (though anything thin will do.)

Without AA, there's a white and black outline and the item seems jagged; anti aliasing removes both those issues.

A really good on-video example of this is the youtube video in which Linus compares xbox graphics to PC graphics.
