Soooo, im gaming on a 1600x900 monitor, i would like to experience some eye candy sometimes but I'm not sure which card to buy...

Can you suggest some Cards that will be nice for my setup?

My current specs are:
A10 5800k
Asus F2 A55-M LK2 PLUS
Kingston 8Gb 1600mhz (Single)

I am only using the iGPU from the A10 5800k and it is not enough for gaming on my rig..

Please consider the Price of the card also, and the performance on my setup :) ) I really value efficiency. sooooo that's all, thank you Tom's HW :)

Well at the very least you should look into the 2GB Radeon 7850 and GTX 650 Ti Boost, they're the cheapest solutions on running games at purely "high" settings

In your opinion, what should I get? some guys says that Gtx 650 Ti Boost is just a waste compared to 7850 and vice versa. Thanks

Depends on what games you'd like to play, the 650 Ti Boost and 7850 perform at just about the same level

Games such as BF4 are AMD optimized so the 7850 will run it better, whereas Nvidia optimized games like Splinter Cell Blacklist would run a little better on the 650 Ti Boost

If you live in the US then the 7850 is greatly priced (110 after rebates)

The is also a $200 7950 that is out of stock at the moment which is a much better performer

What's your power supply also?
