What is the best Graphics Card for $250 for my Gaming System?

Hello, I'm a big PC gamer and would like to increase my FPS with gaming and want to be able to MAX out the graphical settings on PC games such as Bioshock, Skyrim, Spliner Cell Blacklist, ect (or at least have MUCH higher graphical settings than i have now) along with a great Frame rate!

Which brand GPU do you suggest is best for gaming? AMD or Nivdia?

My budget is about $250 (after selling off current Graphics Card)

Also as a separate budget i have about $100 for a new Power Supply! Any suggestions for one to go along with the New Graphics card?

I was looking at THIS graphics card, Let me know if this will get me the results I'm looking for, or if you have a better Graphics card to show me!


Here's my Specs:

Motherboard: MSI 870A-G54 (FX) AM3+, AMD 870, Cross Fire

CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 980 3.7GHz (Quad Core)

GPU: AMD Radeon HD 5770

RAM: 8GB (4x2) DDR3 1600 Dual Channel

600W Power Supply

Please let me know! Thanks!

  1. I recommend you the GTX 760. You could also take a look at the HD 7950, on the AMD side.

    Definitely GTX 760.

    The 7950 dropped in price. It can be had for $200, plus it comes with 3 games of choice.

    The gtx 760 is faster though but costs $50 more
  4. Woah since when is the 760 faster than the 7950???
  5. It depends on the games, but in most of them, the GTX 760 performs better than the HD 7950. Not all of them, though, so it depends on your favorite games I guess.

    I find that hard to believe. the 7950 is VERY overclockable, when you consider that the 760 only beats the 7950 in clock speeds, if you were to OC the 7950 it would blow the 760 out of the water.
