Graphics card to go with i5 760 for under 100?

I'm approaching my first build and I'm really not familiar with graphics cards because I've never been much of a gamer. What card would you recommend (<100, pref ~75-80)?

I would like the ability of doing some light gaming (can't give you any examples of games, sorry!) If I so choose to.

Assume that I would make sure that my other components fit the requirements of the GPU. Thanks!

  1. There is a running artical on this site that gives the best cards for their price range. It would help you a lot.

    http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/graphics-card-geforce-radeon,2761.html

    The Radeon 5560 and 5670 are in the $65-$80 range

    The Radeon 4850 512 and GTS 250 are roughly $100 dollars.

    Of those choices, I'd lean towards the GTS 250.
  2. Yep, If you want something like that, You might be able to get a GTS250 but typically there really $130 $120 but put in 20-30 Dollars, as this is card is a bang for the buck, also the 5770 is quite good, The GTS250 And 5770 are quite close in performance.
  3. What is the native resolution of your monitor and what is the brand/model of your power supply?
  4. This OCZ 600w has been in a few newegg combos as of late:

    But originally I was thinking of a seasonic /corsair in the 500 W range

    Resolution is 1920 x 1080
  5. ^Then you may need to stretch your budget a little bit :(

    Can you explain why?
  7. Because none of the budget graphics will do a great job powering the monitor at that res.

    If I did no gaming at all, what would be the recommended card?

    If you aren't gaming then any card will do really or just get a motherboard(or processor) with built-in video.
    For gaming at 1920x1080 at least an HD5770 is recommended in general, preferably a GTX 460. However if you are willing to lower some settings and play the more intensive games on medium settings then something like this will be adequate;

    It's a good deal. Get it while it's still that price if you aren't willing to raise the budget for an an HD5770.
