I am building a AsRock z77 mobo i5 2500k with 8G RAM, with an SSD for Smart Response cache and the last undecided piece is the GPU. I have considered the new 660 and the 560 ti's, but I wont be modding skyrim or anything so I am looking for a good budget card to get me going until someday down the raod when I can afford a $400 GPU. Any suggestions? I'm kinda stuck on the EVGA 550 ti right now, but am looking for some input from others. Let em know what you think! Thanks all!
At the current moment, under $300, AMD has the best cards you can possibly get. They are seriously good for bang for the buck purposes. All the way up to the 7950. As for above $300, I would say that both brands go hand in hand with Nvidia edging out a win. AMD cards are also much better for video editing and rendering work if that's what you're into.
