Hello, i'm looking for advice on a card to get. I'm planning to buy
http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681...

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.

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.

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.

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).

High settings I can still do on my old 4870 so the 6950 you will be very happy with.

Also one more question, could someone link me a good tower case for around C$70? I was looking at something like http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681... with a visually pleasing design but anything will do. I'm just not sure if there are requirements for space, cooling, ports ect.
