List of cards: http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=E...

I am getting one of those and going to put it in Dual Graphics with a 3870k until the A10-5800K comes out on the FM2 platform.

What kind of results can I expect in that setup?

The ASUS has the best reviews overall, but if you are on a tight budget, I would go for the MSI one.

I can expand my budget to reach any of them... so I'm guessing the ASUS one will be the overall best card?

What is the best maximum budget you are willing to spend? I can help you find a better GPU than those posted above.

I know that the card is relatively low-end but paired with a 3870k, and in the future, a 5800k, surely it would be able to play most games at med, 1080p, 50+FPS?

The most I'm willing to spend is $200. I don't really want to go that high, but yeah.

What kind of a different will I see between this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... with an A6-3650 oc'd to 3GHz,

and the ASUS 6670 in Dual Graphics with an A6-3650 oc'd to 3GHz?

That's not a bad GPU for that price, but if you can stretch your budget to $220, this GPU would rape it and this card OC's well to. Plus Nvidia cards have PhysX that AMD cards do not. It will use a bit more juice though.

From what I've read, nobody should go nVIDIA just because of PhysX due to the lack of games using it.

I also cannot afford to upgrade my PSU at this time... it's a 450w ThermalTake.

That's true, but having PhysX for the upcomming Unreal Engine 4 games and Batman, Metro 2033 with PhysX does make a big difference. Also the GTX 480 is great at folding if you do such a thing as Nvidia's Cuda cores are better overall then AMD.

Since you are on a 450W unit, I would suggest this then.

Alrighty.

Will that be able to run Fallout New Vegas, Ultra settings, 1080p, at a solid 40+FPS?

Yes indeed, I was able to play vanilla Fallout New Vegas on Ultra with about 30+ FPS on an old GTS 450, lol

You would be able to play BF3 on high settings with good FPS.
