Hello all,
My current build is as follows:

Intel i5 3570k overclocked to 4.4 ghz

Asus p8z77-V LX mobo

Xigmatek Dark Knight ii Night Hawk Edition cpu cooler

8gb corsair vengeance ddr3 1600 ram

WD 1TB caviar black HDD

120 gb Kingston hyperx 3k SSD

Evga gtx 560 ti oc GPU

OCZ zt series 750w PSU

Lg optical cd rom drive

Cooler Master HAF X case

I am looking to upgrade my video card for the release of BF4 and was wondering what would be the best card to get for arond $300 with my system. The 560 ti that I currently have runs BF3 on high settings around 50-60 fps however I am not sure how it would compare to newer cards. Thank you in advance for your suggestions.

I would recommend a GTX 760. I personally prefer the Gigabyte windforce model because it tends to get better temps, and with GPU boost 2.0 better temps means better performance. I hear the EVGA ACX model is also pretty good, it looks sexy too.

Best solution
