Alright so i want to have at least 35-40 fps on any game max settings, 1080p res. So heres my system.

CPU-i5 2500K (SB) OC @4.0GHz
HSF-Intel water cooling solution for LGA 2011/1155
RAM-Corsair Vengence 4GB(2x2GB)
Optical- LG Bluray burner
Boot drive-Patriot Pyro 60GB SSD(Win 7)
Fast Storage-Samsung 830 128GB SSD
Slower Storage- Seagate Barracuda 1TB 7200rpm HDD
Graphics Card-HIS Radeon HD7770 GHz
PSU-Corsair HX850
Networking-Asus Wireless PCIex1 card
Case- NZXT Guardian
Monitor-Westinghouse 39' LED TV using HDMI (if you havent tried it your missing out)

So i was doing some research and i looks like im might be going with a Radeon HD 7870 unless the difference beween it and a HD7850 is negligible at 1080p on one monitor. dont want to spend 260 and get the same results as if i spent 200.

EDIT: I might not be spending any, I just OC'd my GPU core from 1000MHz to 1100MHz and the memory from 1125MHz to 1200MHz and got 38-39 fps from guild wars 2 best apperance (used to get 28-29) so i guess problem solved but i will probably consider an upgrade so just post as if this edit wasnt here lol.

yea that would be a good card...the only negative I have heard about it is that the fans are kinda has a lifetime warranty and xfx has great CS....I can attest to that...I broke a motherboard from them totally my fault and they replaced it without question.

I usually play music during games when its uder load so i dont really notice the fans my case has 6 including the PSU and GPU fans, and its quieter than my xbox slim lol. But i probably wont be upgrading for another 2 weeks at the earliest so it might change, or a miracle could happen and prices might drop lmfao.

lol i doubt the price drop that just happened a few weeks ago....but yea I dont care too much about fan noise either my pc sounds like a jet engine so that gpu would not even be noticed in my rig

Why are you picking last gen parts? You want Ivy Bridge. Also playing on a TV means input lag and a number of other issues which you may or may not notice.
