Upgrading Radeon HD 5750, 400$ budget.

APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: 1-2 weeks from now.
BUDGET RANGE: 300-400$ Before rebates
USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: I'll be using this card for gaming, 100% of the time.
CURRENT GPU AND POWER SUPPLY: Radeon HD 5750, 750W Corsair.
OTHER RELEVANT SYSTEM SPECS: Intel i5-760 LGA 1156, MSI h55-gd65, my ram is a little fuzzy, it's 4GB of Ripjaw ddr3 (two sticks) not 100% sure of speed.
PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: Newegg if possible, but I am open to other places I don't "really" have a preference.
COUNTRY OF ORIGIN: United States, North Carolina.
PARTS PREFERENCES: Honestly I really don't mind either or. I prefer an Nvidia card over AMD cards though.
OVERCLOCKING: No
MONITOR RESOLUTION: 1920x1080

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: I am currently looking for a card that can run Elder Scrolls Online at max settings (without shadows if need be) at 60 fps, I am aware that this game is still in beta however it is in the final build of its current beta. If you need another game to go off of, I'd say The Secret World at max settings or Crysis 3. Elder Scrolls Online is a very intense game where many people will be around you at all times 100-200 at some points. I need a card that can handle that.


I previously posted this thread but marked it as answered, however the person who gave me info about this card http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=14-202-099
did not check my motherboard apparently, this is a PCIE 3.0. I'm fairly certain my motherboard does not support 3.0 could someone please verify this for me? and if true I'd like some more suggestions

    Your motherboard is PCI 2.0 but does not matter graphics card 3.0 will work on 2.0 PCI .

    i suggest you this card or wait if someone have better suggestion http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130921
  2. No, your motherboard is not a 3.0 board.

    Yes, your motherboard and a 3.0 card will work but not to full potential.

    By not to full potential, do you mean a significant amount?

    Thank you.
  6. MSI h55-gd65 Will this motherboard have any problems with the cards you have suggested? Could it limit the speed at which they are able to perform is basically what i'm asking. Other than the pcie 3.0 issue with the card.
  7. No People saying it will run slower are incorrect. PCI-Express is not like USB or SATA where a lower version number automatically means lower speed.

    Version 3.0 of PCI-Express x16 doubles the maximum bandwidth the slot can handle over version 2.0 (just as version 2.0 doubled the bandwidth over original version 1.0). However, what many people don't realize is that currently, no graphics cards exceed the bandwidth limit of a version 2.0 slot- not even $1000 models like the GeForce GTX 690 and Radeon HD 7990. So right now, the additional bandwidth provided by a 3.0 slot is meaningless- someday card manufacturers will introduced models which actually can utilize that capacity, but it hasn't happened yet!

    Version 3.0 of PCI-Express also includes diagnostic and management features- and those only work in a 3.0 slot. But those features are independent of performance. $110 entry-level cards like the GeForce GTX 650 and Radeon HD 7770 (which are version 3.0) are still much slower than version 2.x midrange cards like the GeForce GTX 560 Ti and Radeon HD 6950. The 2.0 slot doesn't slow down those midrange models, so it has absolutely no effect upon lower-end slower cards, (regardless of their version number). The GPU model is determines performance level, not the version.
