What Graphics Card should i buy?

Hello, i'm looking for advice on a card to get. I'm planning to buy

so anything that can work with 500w corsair will be great.

Price range C$150-250

I don't know much about gpu, and what to look for in cards so i'm looking for a card that i won't have to replace for a long time. Sound doesn't matter at all to me. And I want to be able to play new 2012 games, ( mainly the mmorpg, Guild Wars 2) at max settings @ 1080p. Any recommendations? I'm using the radeon hd 5670 atm and it's not the best for gaming.

  1. Also, if i'm replacing my 5670, do i just add the next card along with the 5670 or do i completely replace it? Clearly i have no idea what i'm talking about this is probably a very stupid question.
  2. Here's my recommendation:

    You should completely remove the old card and replace it with the new one.

    There is a separate sub-forum for graphic cards:


    I would go with a HD 6950 like the following for $250 CAD w/ $30 rebate card.

    If you are looking to spend less then there's the HD 6870 for $180 w/ $20 rebate card.
  4. Good recommendation the 1Gb version is good for 1920x1080 if you want to cut a few $s but to totally Max out all settings at 1920 x 1080 on some games can't be done for <$250 or any single card setup (the games you mention are fine though).
  5. Sorry did not know they're was a subforum for this, my apologies. Thank you i think with the rebate i will go with [...] 6814150552
    seems like a great card at a reasonable price.
  6. Just saw your comment now simon, i would be very happy if i could comfortable play at high settings @ 1080 ( around 40fps is comfortable for me)
  7. High settings I can still do on my old 4870 so the 6950 you will be very happy with.

  9. That is wonderful news believe me, next up i just need to replace my motherboard and then buy the i5 2500k. :) Oh and some ram =P
  10. Also one more question, could someone link me a good tower case for around C$70? I was looking at something like with a visually pleasing design but anything will do. I'm just not sure if there are requirements for space, cooling, ports ect.
  11. How can i check how much Watts are needed for [...] 6814150552
