  1. At the very least I would recommend a 7850 2GB (also comes with 2 games)
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814131472
    or a 660 (after rebates)
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814500270
    What's your power supply though?
  2. GTX660 WILL be the best chose for $150
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130826

    GTX660>GTX650TI BOOST>>AMD HD7790
    GTX650TI BOOST 〉= AMD HD7850

    GTX650TI BOOST 1GB
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127731
    GTX650TI BOOST 2GB
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814121728
  3. It's worth the extra money to go for the 2gb card
    If you can pay a little extra ($160 after rebate)

    what makes these better than the one I chose?
  5. What's your power supply? that would help determine what's best for you :|
    Well for one they have more memory for the most part (1gb is not enough for games these days)
    and overall they perform much better in games, the 7790 is about as powerful as a gtx 560 from a few years back

    For example, 660 vs 7790 this is the performance gap

    I have a http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139013
  7. That is a beast power supply xD, that can handle any card pretty much :D

    yeah I figured that's why I got it
  9. Are you thinking of going crossfire or SLI sometime though?
    Either way now the power supply is out of the way any of those cards should work pretty well for you in games
    If you're thinking about BF4 then a 660 or 7870 would be the way to go
  10. what about this card would it be a good one? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814121651

    funny thing was I bought a 430watt corsair and my system wasn't booting then I realized im a idiot bc just my processor used almost 200 according to newegg lol
  13. crossfire is pairing two amd cards together (may have some stuttering problems though), and lol 200? my goodness

    so that asus 7850 wuld that be a good choice?
  15. Best answer
    Haha I wouldn't recommending crossfire if you don't want to fiddle around with settings to get games to run properly. The 7850 would be a good choice, check this benchmark and decide if the 7870 is worth the extra cash over the 7850
    once again if you're thinking of BF4, they recommended a 7870 :P

  16. Get an AMD card if you are not thinking of buying a fantastic quality 3D Asus monitor any time soon. If not, go for GTX
