Hey, I'm currently using a HD 5770 and looking for a graphics card upgrade.

I have a budget of $400, currently looking at the 7850 and 660 Ti should I go for one of these or something else?

Hi.

For $400 you can also get a HD7970 or a GTX670.

What is the best for system is hard to say without knowing it.

Ok, thats pretty decent.

If you can spend the money go for one of those. Just take the one you like best / is the cheapest.

Forgot ; what power supply do you have ?

for $400 you could go with a 7970 or a 670. The 7970 is the better card, after a few driver updates, but if you have something against AMD or for Nvidia, the 670 is a solid option too.

Power supply is 600w, not sure of make and model as I am not at home right now.

Ok, psu is fine then i think. I believe something like 34A on the 12V rail is needed, you'll probably have that.

So 7970 or 670, your choice.

Nice, thanks for the help :p 

Just one more thing, does the brand really matter when buying the gfx card? Looking at Amazon, the GTX 670 seems to range from $380-$450.

I wouldn't go for the cheapest.

I like the double fan designs better. Asus, MSI, Evga though they have only one fan design.
