  1. I would get a 7870 or a gtx 660, you said you dont game to much, but these cards will save you money, and both come with 2gb for nice 1080p gaming.

    For a GTX 660: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127699

    HD 7870: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814161404

    I would personally spend the extra $15 on the 7870, its about 5% stronger than the 660, and it overclocks better.

    Use this for benchmarks: http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/MSI/GTX_660_Twin_Frozr_III/27.html

    As you can see the 7870 at stock clocks, beats a slightly overclocked 660. Also the HIS IceQ seems like one hell of a cooler.
