Good GPU to go with 2500k/p8p67 pro Tags: Graphics Cards GPUs Intel i5 Graphics Last response: January 28, 2011 10:11 AM in Graphics & Displays Share akromam90 January 27, 2011 4:10:13 PM I'm looking for a good video card to put it in my system i'm building. I'm gonna be running a i5 2500k and a asus p8p67 pro mobo. I was leaning towards the XFX HD 6870 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... when i pair that with the i5 i get them both for a total of $435 with a combo I was also looking at the XFX HD Radeon 6950 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... If i go that route it's $500 for GPU and the i5. Is it worth the extra $75 for the upgrade in graphics card? I don't plan on OCing and the extent of my gameplay is WoW, Black Ops, Starcraft 2, diablo 3 when it's out.
