the gtx460 can be had for less AND outperforms the 550Ti

The radeon 6870 would be the best option, coming in at only $145 after rebate. It should push decent frames on BF3 at mid settings.

However, with a system with a 450w PSU, it is questionable wether or not a 6870 would work. If your PSU is a good brand like corsair, it should work. But if it is like raidmax or sum thin it most likely won't be able to supply enough power.

Also, DDR2 2gb will not work for a lot of games. You should upgrade.

To be honest your setup looks quite old. I would advise to try and squeeze abou 80$ more and get new RAM, motherboard and gpu. All for less than 250$. Hmm lets see:

Ram, mobo and gpu for 226$. With rebate its 210$.

I wouldnt worry too much about your psu supporting this video card as it is quite light on its power needs.

He doesn't need 8gb of ram my friend. 4gb should do just fine and should save him a good chunk of change.

And the 7770 still takes an auxiliary 6-pin power connector, and it is questionable wether or not his PSU has that.

I d get the extra 4GB for 15$ but thats up to him.

Now concerning the 6-pin connector thats something u can fix with a molex adaptor if he already misses a 6-pin. But you re right i should have mentioned these things beforehand.

Otherwise u see anything wrong with my recommendations?

Guys what are you talking about? He has i3-2100, he doesn't need to upgrade neither his motherboard nor RAM or CPU. Those RAM are DDR3, he just mistyped (as the motherboard support only DDR3 RAM).

@OP: I'd suggest getting HD 7770. It's your best option with that power supply and budget range.

Well, HD 6670 is much below your budget and HD 7770 is twice as strong as Hd 6670.
