I'm building my first computer. I've received some great help from this forum already and I think I'm nearly ready to buy the components, but I'm still not completely sure about the graphics card I should get. I don't mind playing games on lowered settings and I'm not a massive gamer, so initially I thought I should get a HD7770. However, I want the graphics card to last maybe 4 years, so should I get a more expensive card? The current proposed build is listed below along with other possible cards I've looked at. Any suggestion/opinions would be great.
What games do you play exactly? Four years is a might long time in the tech world. The 7850 looks like the best bet to me, since it's pretty powerful, inexpensive, and will last.
I play a lot of older games which I know the HD 7770 I chose initially would handle, but occasionally I want to be able to have the ability to play new games at decent settings that come out over the next few years. The most recent games that I have at the moment are Skyrim, Dead Rising 2 & Metro 2033. Do you think that I should buy the HD7770 now and in a year or two upgrade to a card from Ati's 8 or 9 series when they come out?
