Which GPU for a budget gamer

Hi, i just got a i3 2100 + MSI H61 mobo combo deal from microcenter, and am wondering what gpu would be the best bang for the buck for 1650x1050 resolution? I would like to play Wow, skyrim and starcraft2 at ultra settings (maybe low or no aa).

My price range is ~100 bucks, Can i get a card that can do this at 1650x1050 res?

  1. the 6770 is probably the best card for that price range.
  2. I've been looking at 6670 vs 6770 and is there a huge difference btw them with my setup? I'm asking b/c http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814121442 seems like a steal at 65 bucks and its seems you can OC pretty easily without fan noics/temp issues. I know i said my budget was ~100 bucks but I was wondering if the performance difference justifies the price difference.
  3. Also, will a 6770 be able to do wow and skyrim at ultra@1650x1050res? I've read alot of articles that say yes but then when i look at thard's individual tests it seems that i would only get mediocre fps. I would like to get around 50-60 fps and maybe dip to 40fps in a raid setting, should I be looking at like a 6850 to achieve this?

    Judge for yourself...

    The following is a link to a review of the Radeon HD 6670 benchmarked against other cards. The Radeon HD 6750 and HD 6770 are simply the older Radeon HD 5750 and HD 5770 with a different. Note that the test rig uses a Core i7-920 @ 3.8GHz

    From these tests it seems that a gtx 550 ti , which i think microcenter is selling an Evga gtx 550 ti for 95$ is a good deal. Is 5770/6770 better than gtx 550 ti for these games/settings or pretty much even? This website is awesome btw thanks for posting it.

    I also notice that the evga gtx 550ti seems to be very very popular compared to a 6770 that seems to perform just as well. Anyone out there familar with either or?
  7. Overall more or less even. Most go with the 5770/6770 for the better power figures.
  8. Overall the GTX 550 Ti is more powerful than the Radeon HD 6770. However, it also consumes the most power. Before actually buying a video card you should let us know what power supply you have.
