Hi all. I am a really big noob when it comes to computer building so I came here for some help/advice.(also this is my first time posting, hi!)
Ok, so I'm currently building a computer and need help with picking a graphic card.
Here's my computer so far, hope it's not too bad!

CPU:

MOBO (motherboard):
www.microcenter.com/product/387554/Z77_Extreme4_Socket_...

RAM:
www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1682023328...

Hard Drive:
www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1682223633...

I don't have much of a budget but just a decent graphic card at middle price will do.
Also if you want to suggest some other stuff too (case, power supply etc) that'll be appreciated too! As I'm not finished this build. Please remember I'm a hardcore noob, lol.

Thanks! :)

Well for a good mid-range card, you have the gtx 760 for around $250 and the r9 270x for around $200, with the 760 being slightly stronger. It really depends on how much you want to spend.

Ok, thanks!
I guess I'll walk a little longer for a final decision..

i would suggest an AMD HD 7870 or GTX 660 both can be bought for around 150 maybe little more depending on which brand you choose but both will be fine for playing the latest games

No you wont need two. either cards will play everything fine by them self. for future reference both are able to be sli/crossfired your motherboard supports both crossfire and sli so when the time comes in a few years you can add a second same card
