I am wanting to upgrade my graphics card to help me max out Flight Simulator X (FSX). The specs I have now are below. I don't want to spend to much and if I get a couple in mind, I will try and find a used one or something. Please reply and thanks for your help.

I5-2500K 3.3GHz
HIS Radeon HD5770
16GB DDR3-1600 RAM
Gigabyte P67-DS3-B3 motherboard

A GTX 650 would do amazing on MAX graphics but if you are not looking to play on max but medium settings, go with the ASUS NVIDIA gt 640 2gb.

Otherwise you can also opt for HD 7850 2 GB - $140 - $160

If you want to go for Nvidia side, you can buy GTX 650 Ti BOOST too. That is also a pretty strong card and to be honest, I would recommend it here. Costs around $160 - $180.

If you could tell us your budget, we could give you more concrete and precise responses.

Maybe about £100 if that helps

http://www.ebuyer.com/466946-msi-gtx-650-ti-1gb-gddr5-d... This is as good as you will get and it is very powerful it is the ti version which means a higher gpu base clock, go with this one without a doubt.

Hi again, will be getting the MSI one without dought, but can you just look at this? I think this one is better spec wise if I am correct?

Wrong actually this may say it has 2gb of GDDR5 memory but I had a look at the memory bandwidth, pixelations per second, GPU base clock, Memory clock in MHz and I compared the 2, the MSI turned out to be better for GPU intensive games whilst the ZOTAC one supported more or less HD media. And plus ZOTAC isn't even a good GPU maker anyway they don't even specify in gaming, always stick with MSI, ASUS GALAXY, GAINWARD etc etc..

Would this be a good one? It would still hit my £100 mark with the £20 off coupon I got? Is this like double the power or something?

Hi again, Ive ordered it and it should be here Thursday. Thanks for all your help.... One last question, what is the best way of recording PC Games not using Fraps, EZCam etc but at the same time one thats not going to kill any frame rates.
