Hi guys! I have a Phenom II X4 B95 , I know its an older CPU etc etc, but my father wants to buy me a new GPU , so I am very, like very limited on budget. Im not sure which one to pick.. The MSI GTX 750 TI 2Gb or Gigabyte R7 260X 2 gb version :x . I want to game @1080p @60hz monitor.
My psu is quite good I guess, Corsair CX600 600W 80+ bronze
I have a pci express 2.0 and 8 GB DDR3 of ram .

Could you con him a bit into buying you a gtx 660? you can currently get one for about $20 more than the 750 ti. You can currently buy it for that price here http://www.ncixus.com/products/?usaffiliateid=100003150...
The gtx 660 will use a bit more power but the performance increase from it will be worth it. Synthetic benchmarks can be found here http://gpuboss.com/gpus/GeForce-GTX-750-Ti-vs-GeForce-G... your processor is decent but you could probably upgrade those later when you have the money you could even do something like
PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant / Benchmarks

CPU: AMD FX-6300 3.5GHz 6-Core Processor ($109.99 @ Amazon)
Motherboard: MSI 970A-G43 ATX AM3+ Motherboard ($69.98 @ OutletPC)
Total: $179.97
(Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available.)

You could lower it down even more to something like $150 later on if you want a micro atx motherboard from asus with not much room for expansion but I think the full ATX board would be a perfect fit for your system later on after you buy the video card because you can always move your current stuff onto that new motherboard and processor.
