Help me choose a graphics card fast

Hi, i am trying to decide on a graphics card immediatley because i will be purchasing it tommorrow

my first option is a super overclocked evga gts 450 for 110 dollars canadian, but im not sure if this is the best for me. I will be gaming in diablo 3, crysis 2, bf3 and warhammer spacemarine at pretty low resolutions (currently 1280x1024, going up only to 1920x1080 at most, however i will also be getting into 3ds max and maya as well which i have heard that u need nvidia for and therefore have strayed from ati, but will be convinced otherwise,

thanks alot, and btw my budget is 100-160 tops

    For 160 you could get a 560(non-ti) or maybe a 560ti used if you don't mind buying a used/refurbished product. Both of these would be much better options.
  2. 5770 or 6770 should get you started in that price range unless you have games/applications that you desire to have physx or cuda support.

  4. Id go for a 5770 or 6770 in that price range as stated ^ +1

    Better cards than what you have suggested, but still in your range. The 450 will struggle once you upgrade. The 460 will just squeeze by at 1920x1080. The 560 will be fine with a little lowered detail.
  6. I will say get the XFX HD6870 $150 after MIR

    If you want get the HD 7770 or HD6850 because they are in you price range.

    Yes, but cheaper is better :D , do u think the 450 will still manage on low settings, iu dont need cutting edge on 1920x1080

    is the 6770 better than the gts 450, and if so which brand 6770 should i go with
  9. The brand doesnt matter, just get the cheapest one you can find I would say. Most of the brands are credible.
  10. The 6870 with rebates is 149.99 well with in your budget and is better than most of the card shown above. The only card better in the above is the 560 ti. Here is the link to newegg and check it our for your self and good luck.
