Im gonna upgrade my pc from a AMD A6+HD6700 to a i3-3220 however i dont know what gpu should i take. Since im in malaysia price is expensive so im having a budget of $100 left for the gpu. A friend of mine suggested 7790 However thats too pricey.. What do you guys suggest so that i get the best performance for my gaming rig?

P.s: i only have $100 left for the gpu as im changing mobo+cpu + 1tb hdd+ nzxt source 210..so yeah

More about : gpu 3220 needed

if the 7790 is too pricy try to find a 650ti or a 7770 in your price range... if you can't a 650 or 7750 would be the next best option.

Lol i just checked the price for 650 ti over here and it costs more than the 7790 -_- 7770 is 30 bucks cheaper than the 7790..things are sure expensive here in malaysia man. Anyway w a 650 or 7750 what graphics settings am i seeing here? Medium-high? Or just normal. Cause actually im upgrading to prepare for next gen gaming lol. I usually play Civilization V(w my spec now im able to play high), Skyrim(high too), Crusader Kings, Victoria II, Europa Universalis, Sims 3.. Seldom first person shooter..third person yep. And will next gen gaming be ok w this specs? Like watch dogs, dragon age 3(i anticipate this the most and want to play this at its best) or do i have to upgrade again?

tou might be able to handle them @low but a Quad Core Cpu is propably needed.
Give a shot with an nvidia, as Nvidia's Drivers are Miles Away from AMD's one.

What will i be able to handle them @low exactly? Next gen graphics/gaming, or current ones? If current ones thats a stepback isnt it since w my specs now im able to play high, unless demanding games then i have to put it at normal.

Well on a hundred dollar budget i'd recommend AMD Radeon HD 7770 if that's to much then a 7750 would be decent.

If I take the 7770, will i be able to play:
1)current games im playing skyrim and civ (which i play on high w no difficulties whatsoever) will it support high(like my specs now) or any higher?
2)next gen gaming that starts later this year at low-medium/normal or must i upgrade again?

First of all you need to clarify your resolution rate. If it's a 19 inch monitor, i would presume you are probably playing at 1366x768? At that resolution a 7770 should definitely be able to handle the games you mentioned at MEDIUM or slightly higher individual settings.

I really don't think the i3 is going to be any sort of bottleneck. I had an i3 in the SandyBridge series for running on a 660 Ti card from NVIDIA. It would play every top game title at 1920x1080 resolution with settings at HIGH. The i3 is not the issue. At least not for these sort of games. The issue is your choice of graphics card. I would personally prefer NVIDIA so if you can try for the 650 card. But 7770 is a good choice if you can't.

Here some benchmarks to give you a idea of what to expect, I would need to know what you're monitor resolution is assuming it's lower then 1080p correct? You can view many other games here i just posted a few to give you a example. http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/Sapphire/HD_7770_Vap...

Sorry about that, and yes, i am running at that resolution. I see. But how come w my specs now, Amd A6 and a HD6700 1gb im able to play skyrim high, civ 5 high, mass effect maxed out? If i were to change to an i3 and a newer gpu and as you said medium settings, thats kinda like a stepback to me and a waste of money. How about if i ditch the 1tb hard drive and gain an extra $50, a budget of $150, any better cards i could get? Which is an improvement of my current specs..not like a stepback..thanks!

You want to upgrade to prepare for next-gen gaming, you only have $100 to spend on a video card and you want to play games at high settings? That's like saying you want to prepare for street-racing with a 1991 Toyota Tercel. If you want to play next-gen games at high settings, you're going to need at least double the amount of money you want to spend. You're going to need at least a Radeon HD 7850.
