I am looking into buying a new graphics card for my computer. I am just now getting into gaming like battlefield 3 and other demanding games. For this i need to upgrade my computers gpu and i was looking at the amd hd 7750 gpu. Would this be enough to play battlefield 3 on at least high settings with 30-40 fps? And also would a 450 psu be enough for this card?

Its possible to play on high but with a 7750 you wont get 30-40 frames tomshardware did a article that may help you out.

Oh wow, thanks this help alot cause the other card i was thinking about(gtx 560) is way on the top of the chart. But with my 450 watt power supply will i be able to run the gtx 560 non ti?

According to nvidia the minimum power requirement for a 560 is 450 watts. Which would worry me a little bit. But I'll break it down for you real fast.

Nvidia 500 series they run hot and they use more power then any of the newer cards out there right now.

Nvidia cards do run better in battlefield 3 that shows in benchmarks as you'll see including the link I posted.


But that being said if you can get a cheap 560 you should be just fine I'd think on high. It seems to really fit your frames per second expectations better.

and if you are looking for a psu with some headroom for cheap here is one.

Also, thought to throw out there the 650ti just came out maybe its probably in the same arena as the other cards you were looking at at a lower power consumption point at 400 watts and beats a non ti 560 in bf3 according to this article by tomshardware.
