Need help with picking a graphics card form my a10 prossessor

What graphics card should i get for my amd a10 5800k im looking at a 7870 6970 7850 S(or i could just go get a 6800k cpu right now with a 7790)

(i no Intel works better Plz dont go yammering on about that i was on a budget and i couldn't afford a good Graphics card)

but now i can afford a new card and from what i seen the a10s cpu wise perform a ton better than there fx counter parts in GW2

(Oh My limit is 300 bucks but i would like to keep it under that) And i am in walking distance to a micro center so that option is open to me

  1. don't waste money on a processor. won't make any difference. I saw a gtx660 with a 5800 and it was too much card.

    what resolution are you playing at? and what makes the APU need a discreet card to make the game better?

  3. I'd grab a 7850 http://amzn.to/14LXrV1 and the FX-6300 http://amzn.to/ZjeuaG They would be under your $300 budget with a little extra to spend.

    the 6300 would mean a new motherboard. He already has the APU.

    it's going to bottleneck the heck out of it. Maybe a 7790/7850 like OP suggested in his opener. max........
