Hi guys,
I'm running
Intel Core i3 3240 3.4ghz CPU
Asus P8H61-MX R2.0 motherboard (PCI-E 3.0)
4gb Corsair Vengeance 1600mhz
Silverstone 500w PSU

I'm looking to play most modern games at 1080p
(I'm not stressed out about settings, medium should be fine)

Any thoughts? thanks anyway :)

I second this.
The R7 260X is a bit faster than the HD 7790.

Going by these benchmarks too from anandtech
http://www.anandtech.com/bench/product/781?vs=776

It is much faster than the 650ti at only $10 more.
ONTOP of that, it comes with TWO free games!


Haha I didn't see you posted that so don't look at what I wrote..

Would you recommend investing about 20$ more and getting the Gigabyte GTX 660 OC?

If you can get the GTX 660 for only $20 more then by all means go for it!
