Best GPU I Can Get With My Budget?

Hey guys, Just asked the community on what my system needs the most for a healthy boost, everyone seemed to agree my GPU was the weak link here are my specs:

MoBo: ASRock Extreme4 Z77
CPU: Intel i7 3770k
PSU: Thermaltak 850W
RAM: 12GB
Internal Hard Drive: 1TB (Not SSD)
GPU: EVGA GeForce 660
Monitors: Two 1920 x 1080 Monitors (No plans on going past 1080p in the next 3 years)

I think that's everything you guys need to know so nothing I get will be bottlenecked, just ask if you need any other info, and I'll gladly reply asap!

My Budget: $400

What I Use My System For: Moderate - Heavy Gaming, Heavy Video Editing and Light Photo Editing


Thanks guys! Be sure to leave links to the one you recommend! (Instead of just telling me GTX 770, there are literally like 10 different GTX 770 brands and almost 30 variations, I'm a newbie!!)

    Shouldn't I get one with 4GB of VRam for a slight future proof?
  3. Not for 1080P if the plan is going to go up in resolution yes.

    I'm sure you're correct as you are a Grandmaster haha. But everyone told me if I didn't get a 4GB VRAM GPU, in the next 3 years I wouldn't be able to run my games at the max 1080p resolution?
  5. There has been some talk about that around BF4 but still the GTX770 2GB beats the HD7970 which has 3GB. http://www.techspot.com/review/734-battlefield-4-benchmarks/page3.html and is pretty close to the 280X and 7970Ghz edition.
  6. Yes definitely agree with rolli59 the 770 is a great card and price to performance stands very well!
  7. Thanks guys, I appreciate you're experienced feedback, Now, all that's left is trying to decide WHICH GTX 770 2GB is the best one...

    If you guys can also add some details on why whichever one (Like that msi one is better than any other 770) It'd help me feel a lot more confident about my purchase!

    Thanks guys!

    The ACX cooler keeps this card really cool giving you the option to overclock if you should want to or with it already being Superclocked leave it as is either way it will perform very well.
  9. You can look at different 770 here but really I usually go by price more than the 1-3fps the OC versions give you in most games.

    Thanks Rolli and Avocade! You guys helped a lot, and saved me from spending an extra $100 on 2GB of VRam I wouldn't need!

    Wish there was a way to give 2 best solutions :/
