Main Goal is to run Dayz Standalone and Alan Wake game. (also not planning to OC but the deal i got at microcenter it cost the same to get the unlocked cpu, so i thought wth, as I learn more in th future i leave that door open to oc if i ever want to.

I'd like to stay around $100-$160 for my Video Card,
Also will the 650 ti boost work better with my parts I have than an R7 card?

I may have a chance to snag a used EVGA 650 ti boost a lot cheaper than retail via eBay. Also if you have any other suggestions please let me know. If not there also is a ti boost by GALAXY, anyone have good results with this card?

Also have been considering the HD 7770 (made by Sapphire) got a lot of praise on newegg and other sites.

and thanks to all who give me advice!!! new builder here.

and i went nuts with money this past month and with taxes coming up I cant spend to much more. But i can throw about $150 max at a card now, and maybe a few months down the road go all out. But i just wanna make sure this stuff works so I can return anything to microcenter if need be.

Whats the price range of those cards?
