I am currently using it in 3D modeling(maya) , Unreal engine..etc and also i play games such as mw2 and SC2. 4350 ati cant handle the stress. I want it at least in HD quality while i can enjoy the smooth fps.
my budget for video card is 200, and 100 for power supply.
A 910 is still a pretty decent CPU, its not great, but its not like super old or anything. With a budget of 300 dollars you can do yourself up pretty nice. You can do better then this with your budget, but there really is no point. At that resolution this card will get you by nicely, and compliment your CPU well.
