Hi,

I currently have a 560 ti classified ultra and I was thinking of upgrading. I plan on selling the card for ~$100 and then taking that money and tossing in another $150-$200 for a new graphics card.

What card should I get if my budget is $300? Or should I wait a little bit for the next generation of cards?

My current build shouldn't be a problem:
550w PSU
i5-3570k

Thanks!

GTX760 is the absolute best bang for your buck. It's near enough GTX670 speed (they're pretty much identical) but GTX760 is considerably cheaper.

For that budget your looking at a GeForce 760 or 660 Ti or an Radeon 7950.

The next step up is the 7970 but that comes in at $350.

So for the first 3 choices you can get deals at $249 which is saving you a bit of cash.

Personally i'd go GTX 760 or the HD 7950.

Between the two the 7950 has more bandwidth but the 760 is a little quicker.

Everyone and their dog is going to say the 760 because its the latest card out so I'm just showing you a few alternative options.

GTX 760 is the best buy as of now. Forget the factory overclocked models, get one with a beast aftermarket cooler and overclock the card yourself.
