Want an upgraded Video Card for gaming

Hello,

I currently have:

Windows 7 Home Premium, 64Bit
2nd Generation Intel® Core™ i7-2600 processor (3.4GHz with 8MB Cache)
8GB DDR3 SDRAM at 1333MHz - 4 DIMMs

My current video card is a AMD Radeon HD 6450 1GB DDR3 which came with the Dell XPS 8300 system (yuck), and I am looking for an upgrade in that department for playing games, any suggestions (something in the $200-$300 range?)

    Go for the GTX 560 ti. If you have another 100 bucks you can get a GTX 580 :)
  2. Or go for a 6850 or 6870 which are ok for full hd resolution
  3. I would have to recommend a Radeon 7850, does everything better than the 560ti, less heat, noise, power and more performance for a little bit more. What website do you want to buy from?

    You mean another $200.00,to run a 580 he will have to change the power supply also.
  5. I agree the 560 ti is your best bet today. If you want to wait a couple weeks the new gtx 6xx cards are out and more coming. The gtx 660 Ti will likely be about $250.


    Edit: The 7850's do look appealing. I did not realize they are under $250. Can I change my mind to 7850? Personally I would wait 2-3 weeks if you can. Nvidia should have a new card in your price range and heck you may be able to get a 7870 then if AMD lowers prices to compete.
