Whats the best GPU under $350

Hello All,

I am currently in the process of building a new pc and would like some advice/suggestions for GPU's that are under $350. I am thinking about getting the;
EVGA 025-P3-1579-AR GeForce GTX 570. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130687

Is this a decent mid-level GPU? any advice/suggestions would be much appreciated. PC will be used for gaming, movies, steaming

My Mobo: Sabertooth X79. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131801
CPU: Intel Core i7-3820 Sandy Bridge-E. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819115229

  1. depends on your monitor/res and what you will be ding with the machine.... Personally I would never buy a video card with less that 2gig of ram above 1600 res. For $350 or less you have lots of good choices. I just purchased another 6950 2gig card to run in crossfire. One of those was all I needed so far but have cards to bring over to my next cpu/board upgrade. You may want to hold off until the gtx670 comes along ?
  2. Wait for the 670. It is next in line to be released now that the 680 has been out for a while.
  3. Thanks, appreciate the input.
  4. The 660 and 670 from Nvidia should be great but don't expect to get your hands on one too quickly. For right now you can get the reference 7870 for $329.99 on newegg and custom cooler ones for about $350. The reference 7950 is going for $379.99 on newegg also and would be worth the extra $40 over a GTX 570 imo.

    Those 2 cards are really good deals at those prices if you ask me. Tom's even stated in their last best GPU for the money article that
    The Radeon HD 7870 sets a new standard for what we expect from a sub-$400 GPU. With performance comparable to the GeForce GTX 580 and kissing the heels of the $450 Radeon HD 7950, this card represents one of the best high-end values we've seen in recent memory.
    And that was for the 7870 at the ~$360 price point. You can now get a 7950 for sub-$400!
  5. buy 7850 OC also good, with gigabyte dual 10cm fans.
