Hello everyone. I'm saving up to build a Gaming PC for around $1155. There is one thing I am stuck on though. I'm not sure what graphics card to get. Out of the Radeon HD7850 or the GTX 660. I will be playing games like DayZ, BF4 or BF3, Chivalry Medieval Warfare, and some other games like GTA V if or when it comes out. They both look like pretty descent cards but I'm not sure which is better. If you could put down a comment what card is better that would be great! Thanks!

Oh and by the way here is the website I am looking at the cards on. Is called PC Case Gear. Just in case you want more info.

You can get a more powerful GPU than a 660 or 7850.
Just check out this build:http://

Yeah I watch his videos. :)  but I forgot to say that the $1500 is also including mouse $25, monitor $190, keyboard $85 and anti-virus $45 so take all that away and you get around $1155.

True but i still need to get the case, optical drive and hard drive so that would be another 200-300 and i live in Australia so some of the prices are more expensive

u want a br-drive or a normal one?
normal optical drives 20-30$(LG's one) case 50-70$ (sharkoon tauron?) hd 50-150$(WD is nice, get 1tb and a 64gb ssd), so thats around 250, means 1 less graka!
go with a msi gtx 760 easily overclocking possible.

http://gyazo.com/2047c2b85ecd495a61fba778f627415d i live in aus aswell thats as close as i could get it just save up later for a cpu cooler and ssd later on but that will be awesome setup! oh you gotta choose your case

I just recently bought coolermaster n600 case from MSY $80 really awesome case airflow is brilliant and possibility of running 2x 240mm radiators is a bonus later on if you wanna go watercooling ie. h100i or h220's really good bang for your buck! i can post some pics of it if you like!
