  1. Easily.

    I would recommend an HD 6450. Pretty sure they are made for media. Look at this instead:

    Although, if you think you might play a game or two every now and again, the 7750 will be fine.

    Do you think the 7750 could run games like Just Cause 2, F1 2012, Civ 5, and the like? Or am I heading into 650 territory? What about this graphics card? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814161406&nm_mc=AFC-C8Junction&cm_mmc=AFC-C8Junction-_-na-_-na-_-na&cm_sp=&AID=10446076&PID=3938566&SID=
  3. Possibly, but I don't think you will get the best details and stable frames. It also depends on your other specs too. The 6450 is simply a media card and the 7750 is a low-end gaming card. The GTX 660 should run those games just fine though. If you want an AMD card, I'd recommend a 7850.

    What about the 7870 from HIS? Just like 20 dollars more, and the graphics card is better. Do you think then upgrade is worth it?
  5. Depends also on your current hardware. Tell me what you currently have.

    i5 4570, 2 2TB WD Greens, HTPC case, Micro ATX Mobo, 620 watt PSU, Windows 8 64 bit OEM. This is a new build, and just trying to figure out the graphics card.
  7. Best answer
    The 7870 would be a good choice. I have never bought a HIS product though.

    Have a read of these benches to see what kind of performance you could get: http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/radeon-hd-7870-review-benchmark,3148.html
