I am looking to buy a new graphics card for $200 bucks and no more what would you guy's or girl's recommend?


My Specs:
AMD Athlon II 650 Quad-core processor 3.2Ghz
8GB DDR3 Ram
Windows 7 64-bit
PSU 600W
Resolution 1600x900

Games i want to play:
Fallout New Vegas
The Witcher 2
Mass Effect 3
Skyrim

I also have a AMD Athlon X2 5000+ if that makes a difference

With that CPU, which is kinda average, look along the lines of a GTX560 or maybe whatever the 7000 series equivalent of a 6870 (7770?) is. Or wait for something like a GTX650...

But the thing being you'd need a better CPU for much more.

6870...

DON'T Put it on your AMD Athlon X2 5000+ system, put it in your:

AMD Athlon II 650 Quad-core processor 3.2Ghz
8GB DDR3 Ram
Windows 7 64-bit
PSU 600W
Resolution 1600x900

Here is a cheap 6870

I don't think it would bottleneck your CPU in any way. But just make sure this card fits nicely in your case.

Yeah, HD6870. Or if rebates are ok to get under $200 consider a GTX 560 Ti.
