I'm looking to do my first build sometime soon but I think my graphics card may be over kill. I was planning on getting a 770 but I'm not sure that's necessary. I want to run any game max settings around 50 fps(bf4 for example) , what is the cheapest graphics card that can still run max with no lag.

You are going to have to get something like the 770 or the r9 280X/r9 290 as you won't get better frame rates at max settings at 1080p with a smaller GPU

it all really comes down to your budget and expectations.

at 1080p, if you really wanna max out EVERYTHING then a 280X or 770 is the minimum requirement, save for your resource heavy games like Crysis 3 or Watch Dogs every now and then.

if you feel like you can compromise a tad bit every now and then going for high over ultra, then mid-end to lower high-end cards like the GTX760, 280, 270X, 270, 265, etc. are worth their price. the following cards are also great for 1600x900 res if that's what you have.
