    You should go with HD 7770 if you can afford it, it's the best bang for your buck:

    However, if you cannot afford it, get HD 7750, which is around 20% weaker:

  2. I'm really not that good when comparing cards, so would this be worse or better then the 6850?
  3. will the 7770 play at 1080p?
  4. HD 7770 is around +- performance of HD 6850 when it comes to DirectX 11 games and a bit behind it when it comes to DirectX 9/10 games.
  5. do you think it would play bf3 on medium at 1080? ive been trying to choose between a 7770 or waiting another month and getting a 6870 but every chart i see only shows the 7770 at lower resolutions
  6. This one is on maximum settings:



    So yea, it should handle medium ones just fine!
  7. ok thank you for this chart

    Being able to play games at high settings on a $100 graphics card isn't impossible, as long as you turn the resolution down. I don't know how much graphics cards cost where you live, but I know that where I live, the best graphics cards for $100 or less are the GT 640 2GB, the HD 6670 1GB, and the HD 6750 1GB.
