Hi there,
I was looking up for a GPU that could do 60fps on low/medium on new and upcoming games. Which of the two cards would get me by until the next generation of AMD/Nvidia cards are released? Something went wrong with my build budget (was originally going to buy an R9 270x) and I have been using an integrated GPU for quite a long time now, so anything is better than it. I have narrowed my search to these two and unfortunately can't get anything outside my local craigslist. Thanks!!

Other relevant info:
CPU: Intel core i5 4570
HSF: Deepcool Ice Blade Pro
GPU: Intel HD 4600
RAM: Crucial Ballistix Tracer 8GB 1866mhz
HDD: Western Digital Caviar Blue 500GB
PSU: HEC Win+Power 550w 80+ Bronze
Chassis: NZXT Phantom 530 (Was supposed to be a 410 but the store screwed up with it)

Neither. Used cards are a bad investment.

If you can get it especially cheap, the 560 ti hawk is still a quite decent performing card for 1080p, and considerably better than Intel HD 4600.

Whats the price?

About $110 if converted for the GTX 560ti and $95 for the HD 7770. Oh and one more thing, I will be playing on a 1600x1080 TV. You think this would be enough to play most AAA games at low/med settings at respectable framerates (say 40-60) just enough until the next wave of cards release(ie. Maxwell)?

Best solution

Yeah that should be fine, 560 ti will have no problem with all games at 1600x1080. Admittedly I dont tend to play super high end games like bf4, but my 560ti still plays everything fine that I play at 60fps (tons of steam games, League of legends, Grid 2, Skyrim etc)

Though the iGPU isn't really that strong, I still had a blast playing indie games. I built this as an alternative to consoles, was not disappointed. Can't wait to experience more of what the PC can offer. Thanks!!
