Which one would be the best out of these 4? I play games such as TF2, GTA IV, Civilization V, Dota 2. I play these games at a resolution of 1600x900, and I value performance over graphics. Which one would be the best graphics card according to this?
I'm upgrading my 4GB RAM to 8GB RAM.
I'm upgrading my 250W PSU to a 550W PSU.
Overall, how would this computer be? Would it be a decent build? I only have a budget of $400 and I can't order anything online, which severely limits my selection. Would I be able to play most games at medium-high? And is there anything else that I would need to buy? Like fans or such? I don't want my computer to break, it just got corrupted a while ago and had to recover it. Sorry if I might be asking for too much, but I am quite an amateur when it comes down to stuff like this, and I need real people to help me. Thanks in advance!
Do not buy computer components from Future Shop or Best Buy, they overcharge by a huge margin. I would strongly recommend you order online. If not, see if you have a Canada Computers or other computer shop nearby, they tend to be more competitive with the online retailers price wise.
You're going to be paying probably 50 to 60 bucks more than you would with an online retailer like newegg.ca, TigerDirect.ca, or NCIX.ca for the GTX 560, plus the higher taxes that come with the inflated price. It's only worth buying from Future Shop if you absolutely cannot order from some other online retailer for whatever reason, and Future Shop is literally the only place in town that sells computer parts. Look around for even a local computer shop, they may have some video cards for sale, likely at prices far more reasonable than Future Shop.
If you can only buy from FutureShop you are going to get ripped off no matter what. If you absolutely cannot get anything shipped to you, or don't have a credit card, or whatever is preventing you from ordering online, and you can't solve those problems, then I guess you'll have to suck it up and get ripped off if you want to upgrade.
I would say, try to solve the problem that prevents you from getting stuff from places other than FutureShop if possible.
Don't you have a friend or relative who can use his/her account to order online. Then you can use whatever you saved to buy dinner or a small gift. The cost maybe the same but its no longer a rip off & you spend the money for better cause.
