Best GPU for up to $130
Mar 21, 2012, 4:48 AM
Hi just wanted suggestions for the best graphics card I can get for up to $130 or so.
AMD Athlon II X4 3.1 GHz
(Not sure about the MB ,this is a pre-made system I was given)
Windows 7 Home Prem
Current graphics is just the integrated
Just ordered a nice 600w PSU to replace the 250w that the system has currently
I will not be overclocking or anything. I would just like a card that can play (no eyerolling please lol) WoW and Second Life on max or even Medium (easily) settings. Is my CPU etc good for that?

6770 or even better 6790 are amazing cards at around $100-140. Great performance they stay cool and they dont need a massive PSU.
