I just bought (havent inserted yet) an intel core i5 3570 (no K) I do not plan on overclocking but i need a GPU to be balanced or better than my Core for around $150, nothing over and not too much less. Also, just a side question, it is not as important however, is there anything special i need to input a new PSU or is it all already in the bundle?

PREFERRED SITE: Newegg if possible :D 

Play style? I prefer light gaming, mostly highly modded Minecraft, Skyrim, Fallout: New Vegas, those thing.

Can you post the bundle that you bought?

Anyway, a GTX 750ti sounds perfect for you, $150 exact most models.

I suggest THIS one: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00IDG3PRI/?tag=pcpapi-20 - It's out of stock in most places at $150 but available at $155-$160 if in a rush.

AMD alternative:

Here's a 750ti review. You can find charts comparing its performance with the 260x in here too: http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/geforce-gtx-750-ti-review...

I was just looking at the GTX 660, but will check out what you suggest, the problem is i am actually at school right now so i cannot post my bundle, i have a basic Gateway Black DX4375G-UW20 Without my core.

If you can afford a GTX 660, go for it, isn't a 660 a bit over budget.

Only issue I have is that I have no idea what Power Supply you have so I'm not sure if the 660 can be powered.

The 750ti is a very lower power card so good with most PSU's

Was gonna say put the extra money towards a 760, enjoy your 750 though :)

Maybe worth a wait for athe R7 265.

I know for a fact this card is faster than the 260x and slower than the 270(the 750ti that is)

So time to see whether the R7 265 is faster or not.

Only thing is, is that the 265 is not out yet.
