I don't know what video card to upgrade to, I've read almost every review but I'm still undecided.

Quote:
Here are my system specs:

My desktop is running @ 1440x900 resolution

AMD Phenom B55 X4 @ 3.2GHz
MSI 880GM-E43
4GB DDR3 Ram
Seasonic S 12 II 620w (bronze)
1TB WD Black 64mb cache
750gb Seagate Barracuda 7200
160gb WD (old harddisk)



I would like to know which card is best suited for me, because I plan to play Crysis 3, Sleeping Dogs, NBA 2k14, RE6, Total War ROME II. I always use Photoshop, After Effects, Premiere, Illustrator, Flash, Sony Vegas because I am a multimedia artist.

I would go HD 7850, cheap, fast and has enough memory for 1080p gaming. Also with the new series just being rebranded HD7000 cards you will have a long termn of driver optimizations down the road. Also AMD will launch Mantle to increase the performance of all GCN cards *hd 7000 and R7 2xx/ R9 2xx cards*

How will the performance be, since my motherboard is only a PCI-E 2.0?

It doesnt matter what PCI-e your motherboard has. It's backwards compatible, so any PCI-e 3.0 card will run as good in a PCI-e 1.0 board as it runs in a PCI-e 3.0 board (there are few exeptions like throwing a GTX 690 in a PCI-e 1.0 slot, there could be a bandwidth bottleneck) . So the performance will be pretty good in your case.

I can't do 1080p gaming since my desktop resolution is only 1440x900, putting that into mind, is the 7850 still the best choice for my preference?

your screen support max 1440x900? and 1080p doesnt matter.. even if you run 360p with 16aa its almost the same but with bigger font i guess
