  1. The 650ti is ok for 900p, but if you game on a 1920x1080 monitor then you should look into a 770. It's new and sells for $250. Awesome card. Also, it'll max out BF3. A 650ti will play BF3 on Med/High settings.
  2. by the way, i updated my build. . .

    here it is

    asus gryphon z87
    intel core i5 4570

    by the way, is asus gtx660 ti better than 650ti? can i play all the games in max settings for 660ti?
  3. It would help if we knew what monitor? 900p 1080p 1440p????

    The 670 > 660ti > 660 > 650ti boost > 650ti.
  4. my monitor would be 1920 x 1080 . . . it's the new samsung led monitor. . .
  5. I'd suggest the MSI TF 670.

    You want to get an average above 60fps, but you don't need 100fps; cuz a 60Hz monitor (like yours) can only refresh up to 60fps.
  6. hmmm . . .what monitor do i need to have a 100fps ? it's my 1st time building so im kinda newbie about fps and stuffs. . . if i build a high end gaming rig, will i just be wasting my money for a newbie like me?

    What is your monitor? Most monitors will only achieve 60Hz at 1080p, which means it can only display 60fps. However, there are some monitors out there that will reach 120Hz or 144Hz at 1080p. Here is an example of one:
    http://pcpartpicker.com/part/samsung-monitor-s23a700d

    If you have one of those 120/144Hz monitors then you want to try to reach at least 100fps.

    This chart shows you 1920x1080, BF3 on Ultra. Notice that a 770 gets 85fps. And a 780 gets 103fps. A 780 is a lot of $$$. Is playing at 100fps worth the extra $$$? I personally don't think so. My advice is to go with a 60Hz monitor unless you are willing to turn down settings to achieve high fps.http://www.anandtech.com/show/6994/nvidia-geforce-gtx-770-review/10
