I'm doing my first build in May and I can't decide which GPU to get. Here are the specs:

Motherboard: ASRock Z77 Extreme4 ATX LGA1155 Motherboard
Power Supply: Corsair CX 600W 80 PLUS Bronze Certified ATX12V Power Supply
CPU: Intel Core i7-3770K 3.5GHz Quad-Core Processor
RAM: Crucial Ballistix Sport 16GB DDR3-1600 PC3-12800)
Hard Drive: HGST Deskstar 7K1000.C 1TB 7,200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s
Case: Diablotek EVO Mid Tower ATX Computer Case
Disc Drive: Lite-ON 24X SATA DVD Burner - OEM
CPU Cooler: Thermaltake Silent Intel LGA1156 CPU Cooler with 4-Pin PWM Function

I'm trying to keep it under $100. Here are 2 options I've found:

Thanks in advance!

P.S.: I won't be doing extreme gaming; I want to record and play Minecraft and do some video editing and some Photoshopping.

GT 640 for sure. Gtx 280 is an old gpu. And the specs say it too.

Get a XFX 7770 or 7850 and you will be fine. If you can find one.. a 560 ti wouldn't be a bad buy since your not doing extreme gaming

Is the 7770 significantly better than the 7750? If they are, @arich5 could you post that link please? I was also wondering if the card's capacity will help with the video editing. If so, it's pretty much between the 2 GB 550 TI or a 7770/7750. Thanks for the suggestion guys!
