Curious to ask what the best gpu I could get for around 180 would be I was looking at the gtx 650 ti boost but would like more thought on this, running
Processor-AMD FX-4130 Zambezi 3.8GHz
Motherboard-ASUS M5A78L-M/USB3 AM3+
Psu- rosewill 600watt

Any ideas appreciated, Looking for mostly high range frames on games like battlefield / wow / crysis

The boost is a great choice at that price - if you can spring for another $20, step up to the 660 or an HD7870.

A 7870 will beat the pants off a 650 ti boost and can be had at ~$170 right now, i'd say it's the best at your price...and 2 free games to sweeten the deal.

If you doing heavily threaded creative or trans coding tasks with gaming on the side, a CPU upgrade would be a good idea, if this is for gaming, your CPU is adequate for 99% of games and the game experience will depend almost completely on your GPU (get the best you can)

If you don't already have the cpu you should get the 6300 it will make a lot of difference in just about everything and from what I've seen the 6300 can be overclocked really well.

A nod to the 7870 as well if you have the cash, two 40 dollar games really adds value

Yeah it will be strictly for gaming, I have purchased the cpu but I have not opened it and might just return for the upgrade since its not a huge difference, as far as the cpu I will get the raedon card that's a really good price thanks a bunch!
