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

Definitely get the 750Ti,its one of the greatest graphics cards NVIDIA has ever made.

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
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 your processor is decent but you could probably upgrade those later when you have the money you could even do something like

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.
