  1. For AMD you have the 7850 which is my pick:

    From Nvidia there is the 560 ti.
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127594

    After rebates, they are just under $200

    The 550 ti is not bad but there is a big difference between that and the cards I mentioned. It all depends on the games, resolutions and quality you are aiming at.
  2. Go for the 7850.
  3. +1 for the 7850. It will run modern games at high settings in 1080p. The 560ti is rather close, so if your country has a big price gap between them, then it's an good alternative (however it uses more electricity than the 7850 and runs hotter)

  4. i would like to play games like battlefield 3 and boredlands 2
  5. For BF3, you should get a 2GB instead of a 1GB model. Borderlands 2 supports PhysX and makes good use of it, so maybe you'd want a Nvidia card, but that's up to you. The 7850's advantages are in how much MSAA it can run with in that game whereas Nvidia has PhysX. Which you value more would determine which is the better card, just remember to not get a 1GB card for BF3 unless you're playing very low resolutions such as 720p or thereabouts (you might get away with it at 1600x900).
  6. If you have a Fry's Electronics near you, they have an Asus 7870 for $200 after a $20 Rebate. http://www.frys.com/product/7275153;jsessionid=ghPPitoyhtqbJtKJUeHD6A__.node1?site=sr:SEARCH:MAIN_RSLT_PG
  7. how about the ASUS HD7770-2GD5 Radeon HD 7770 GHz Edition 2GB? would would your three choises be?
  8. That card is better than a GTX 550 Ti, but it's nowhere near a Radeon 7850. I'd put it about mid-way between the GTX 550 Ti and the GTX 560 Ti, right below the GTX 560 and about on-par with the Radeon 6850 and GTX 560 SE.
  9. I am not sure if getting a 2gb 7770 is a good idea. In low end cards getting 2gb versions doesn't provide better gaming performance. I agree with the HD 7850.. or if you want something a little bit better than 7770 try 650 ti..its new..hehe.. other than that I don't see any reason in buying it... here's the benchmark for bf3

  10. Dude if baorderland2 is the game you want to play get nvidia card.Its physx effects are really really awesome.Best ever i think.
  11. so where can i buy the graphics card?
  12. Where are you live? You can buy from newegg if you are in USA.
  13. Newegg also ships to Canada. Amazon is another option for much more of the world than Newegg.
  14. i think u shuld go for gtx 560 ti which is more better than 7850 using core i5 and 8gb ram

    That's completely false. The 7850 has a small lead on the GTX 560 Ti and it does so while using much less power than the 560 Ti and overclocking can increase the gap considerably.
