What Graphic Card should I take

I am upgrading my old PC to core 2 quad CPU, 4GB RAM but I haven't decided yet about a proper GPU that won't bottleneck my CPU.
I want to play MMO RPG/RTS/FPS games and use Adobe programs.
So I want to know which GPU will be the best choice for me. I have budget of 100-120$ for GPU.
Note: -My screen resolution is 1280x1024
-Please don't write that I can save money and buy new mobo and i3, i5 :)

  1. Best answer
    Get a 7790 for u
    Best card for ur budget
  2. gt650 would be plenty good enough.

    BUT a new mobo etc. and the igpu on the i5 would be good enough for your resolution.
  3. Video Card: Sapphire Radeon HD 7790 1GB Video Card ($120.38 @ Newegg)
  4. Even 650 ti can be outperfrmed by 7790

  5. If I get 7790 , are you sure that it won't bottleneck any core 2 quad cpu?
  6. No chance of bottleneck there as its a good quad core cpu
    What exact model u have???
  7. I still don't know for sure because my friend will get parts for my PC, but I think it won't be nothing less than 2.5GHz per core. I would like Q6600 or Q8400 or something even better.

    Btw, is there any specific model of that CPU that you advice me to look for?
  8. No a core 2 quad u have is sufficient
    If u wanna upgrade the cpu
    upgrade to a ivy bridge as there is no point investing in a dead socket cpu


    Dont frget to close the post
  9. But I already have motherboard and it is much cheaper to get core 2 quad then ivy bridge cpu where i live.
  10. Yeah it is that is y i m saying that stick with what u have
    And later on do a complete upgrade

    For now 7790 would be great
