I have a computer I built 2 years ago, but never bought a video card (ran out of money). Would anyone be able to recommend me a video card (in the 200-400 range) that would be compatible with my build? Specs are below:

- i5-2500k (overclocked to 4.3GHZ) CPU
- Asus P8Z68-V PRO/GEN3 MOBO
-Thermaltake TR2 RX 750W PSU
- Corsair XMS3 8GB RAM (2x4GB)
- Seagate Barracuda 3TB 7200 RPM HDD
- Crucial 128 GB M4 SSD
- Cooler Master CM 690 II Advanced Case

Thank you for any help!

at $200- 270x, 280 or 760
$300- 280x or 770
$400- 290, maybe a 780

your system is good enough for any GPU.

For the best performance a a gtx 770 (330-350$) and go with an evga, gigabyte, Asus, or MSI for the best brands. My personal favorite is evga.

However if you want to save some money but still play the latest games the gtx 760 will also suit you well at a price of about 250$. Again go with evga, gigabyte, Asus, or MSI. It is the graphics card I run and it works very well.

But these are in you price range, with your system you could run most any single GPU.

best performance in this price range is a 290 and best bang for the buck would be a 280x.
