New video cards help

last august i bought a new mobo and processor for my desktop. i then left for the army and now that im back i want to finish updating my system with new video card(s). i dont have a ton of money to spend. the setup i have now is an AMD Phenom II x6 1090T coupled with an ASUS M5A97 EVO mobo. im not sure if 2 smaller cards would be better than 1 bigger one. any suggestions would be much appreciated.

  3. Your processor will be more then enough for most of videocards.
    In low-mid budget radeon wins in most cases ( if you're not nvidia physx fan)
    You can get 7850 1gb for only 165-180$ now : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814161426
    It's a good deal and if you have <=1080p screen 1gb will be enough.
    And as already said, 1 "bigger" card :)

    cool ill check that one out, i have a large screen 47" 1080p, the only problem i have at the moment is currently the amount of screen that is available is about 1 inch on either side over the the amount of screen used :/ not a biggie but hopefully new card will fix that up. Now that that problem is solved also gonna pick up a new hard drive cuz the old hitachi isnt cutting it anymore, such a pain to always have to go back into the bios setup and change the drive connection from AHCI to IDE after every bios change, thanks for the help

    Size doesn't matter for graphics card , only resolution

    check monitor menu->adjust size or something like this.
    95% that graphics card will not resolve this problem
