APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: Next 2 weeks
BUDGET RANGE: For both $200-$250.00

USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Gaming mostly been playing Rift

CURRENT GPU AND POWER SUPPLY: Currently running a Galaxy GTX430 with stock PSU

OTHER RELEVANT SYSTEM SPECS: Have a HP 6124y AMD Athlon II X4 620 processor, 2g PC2-6400 X4 Ram for 8GB total.
PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: Newegg or Amazon
PARTS PREFERENCES: Prefer NVidia over ATI
OVERCLOCKING: Maybe
SLI OR CROSSFIRE: No

MONITOR RESOLUTION: (1920x1200)

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: Run 2 monitors shouldn’t be an issue as most new cards come with 2 ports. I know with my current rig I'll never be able to get max graphics. but would like to be able to turn the graphics up from low-med to med-high and still keep a 30-40 fps

I've been looking at the GTX 560TI but finding a card and a PSU that meets the requirements of the card without blowing the budget is escaping me.

I was thinking of going with this Corsair

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139027

or this Apevia seems like a stellar deal

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817148022

But I really don't know enough about power supplys to figure out exactly what I need.


I think I might be sold on the 6870 the perfomance you seem to get for the price is better than what Nvidia is currently offering.

Is there a down side I need to be aware of?
