Time for New Graphics Card, I need some help?

In the next 4 weeks I'm planing on getting a new graphics card and had originally chose the Gigabyte GTX 660 OC as it was a good bang for the dollar around $199-$209.

Now the new EVGA 750ti FTW and SC editions are out and I know it is a step below in performance when i checked my games with Game debate. Or should I just save up for a
Evga GTX 760 SC at $289.

My current rig is a gateway dx4850-45cu that I purchased from Future Shop 3 years ago.
Core i7-2600, 8GB DDR 3 RAM and a GT420 gpu.

I have purchased a Corsair CX 750m PSU and a new Enermax Coenus Black Mid Tower Window ATX Gaming Case for $44.99 to hold it all and been complementing a new MOBO and Processor LGA1150 or should I get a new MOBO LGA1155 and keep the i7 and get new brand name RAM?

  1. I'd keep the mobo & cpu for now and maybe go for a 270x is you can get one at msrp
  2. I think you should give us a budget for everything excluding the PSU and the case, and then we'll give you suggestions.
  3. Your rig has everything to game except the video card, get r9 270x and will solve that problem with a phenomenal card for 200.
  4. Thanks for the help.
    My budget depends on my tax return but last year was $800 CAD so between $400-800 CAD.
    I Priced the R9 270x on newegg and the MSI Gaming 2GB was $299.99.
    Gigabyte OC 2GB was $264.99
    and the
    MSI gaming GTX 760 2GB was $299.99
    EVGA GTX 660 SC 2GB was $229.99

    And is it worth investing in a haswell mobo and cpu?
    My first thoughts were a Gigabyte Z87x-UD3H Mobo and a Core i5-4670k This would run me $429.98+taxes and freight.
    Trying to keep to a black/Blue theme if possible. Was looking orginally at Asus Z87-A Mobo.

    I think that you have a decent CPU for now, so I don't think it's worth it to upgrade to Haswell or even FX series from AMD.
    As one of our forum thread explains

    I think you should upgrade your GPU only, for now. The GPU that you get will depend on your budget by the time you are purchasing.
