i have a Intel Core i5-3450 with a MSI H77MA-G43 motherboard. i'm using it for gaming (MAX SETTING IF POSSIBLE). my budget is around $200~300 or maybe a little over $300. i have a 20" 1600x900 monitor. btw, is Corsair D3 Vengence 1600 8Gb good?

at $350 you can get 7850 , along with a full HD monitor. If you want to max games, i suggest you get gpus with more Vram but it all depends on the game.

Below 300$ - Radeon 7870
Below 250$ - Radeon 7850
300$ - GTX 660 ti
Above 300$ - Radeon 7950

I the prices are aprox. and can vary, note that these prices are the reference models and custom models can cost more(10-20$)


The Radeon 7870 and GTX 660ti are the 'Bang for your buck cards', I cant tell which one is better because im in your situation as well.
Both cards have advantages and disadvantages in different games. Different website show different scores.

Asus Direct CU II line of cards and MSI's Twin Frozr IV are two other choices, but sapphire is an amazing brand if you can get over the blue pcb's :p

I prefer asus version because they offer many softwares for your GPU. However im not sure about other manufacturers.

Unfortunately Nvidia does not have an equivalent to the radeon 7850 yet :( 

But they do have the gtx 660 ti which is $300
