The nVidia 560 is also but the new nVidia drivers like to crash in web video so you may want to avoid that till they release a better version. | Report abuse Gman450 Graphics card Master July 31, 2012 3:53:23 PM Like hang-the-9 said, either a GTX560 or a HD 6870 should do.

If I do get into PC gaming then I will consider the higher end cards. | Report abuse BigMack70 Graphics card Master July 31, 2012 6:58:59 PM Wait for the GTX 660ti to come out in two weeks and then pick up a 7850 or 7870 for $200 depending on how low the prices fall. | Report abuse moaz August 10, 2012 12:23:33 PM Best answer selected by moaz. | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Graphics & Displays>Console to PC Gaming Graphics Card> Related ressources: ForumNext gen gaming .
