More about what graphic card
  1. Which games do you want to play? What is your budget? How big is your power supply unit? Is your computer case standard size?
  2. i'd go with HD 6770.

    +1 to all of that.
  4. Budget doesn't really matter. But $100-$200 would be nice. You have to explain to me about the power supply unit. And I think it's standard size case. Not sure. But it's about the same size as most pc
  5. It has 300w psu but I have another pc with a 380 psu.
  6. a 6770 and 6670 cool choice for happy gaming
  7. Well, you have two options.

    1. Closer to $100 option. Get HD 7750. That's the fastest card you can get without a power supply upgrade.
    Gigabyte Radeon HD 7750 - $109.99

    2. $200 option. Get a new power supply and HD 6870 with it.

    HIS Radeon HD 6870 - $169.99
    Corsair CX 500 - $59.99

    Total: $229.98 BEFORE rebates. Gets lower after them

    You really get what you pay for. HD 6870 is around 60% faster. Can't really tell you more because you didn't say which games you played. Also, is your resolution really 1280x960? I have never ever seen a monitor with such resolution! Are you using your native resolution?
  8. his this version is no good choice i recommend go for sapphire version for good support
  9. If I get a new computer frame do I also need to get a new motherboard or can I move my motherboard from this of to the new frame
  10. u mean to say a new case may be not because this card not big as u think it will
    easily fit in any case
