  1. I would pick up a GTX 660
  2. What's your chassis? Seeing that you have an ITX motherboard I think you have a small computer, in that case I would go for a low profile 7750.

    I would go for the 7870 2GB Sapphire OC It's not really an overly big GPU and it would go nicely with your PSU and its in your budget $248 (Australian) however Australia is more expensive than well almost anywhere

    But you should update your chassis anyway just to maxamize your room as well as air flow here is a benchmark video i found on youtube

  8. chassis is what you mount all the parts on ... aka PC case

    1. The rectangular, usually steel frame, supported on springs and attached to the axles, that holds the body and motor of an automotive vehicle.
    2. The landing gear of an aircraft, including the wheels, skids, floats, and other structures that support the aircraft on land or water.
    3. The frame on which a gun carriage moves forward and backward.

    pc case

    the case you got should be more than fine. i always go for case's with features such as removable hard drive cages and drive bays just to maximize room for radiators and GPU's and to promote better air flow your case has rivets however you can still remove you hard drive cage and cut your lower drive bays but that's an extreme option but i think you should be fine getting the 7870, 660, 660TI, 550Ti, 580

    Hey on newegg it is 275$, if i was just getting a card i would get it cause it seems better then the GTX 660; but i have to get a psu ram and a new HDD along with it. thanks for the suggestion!! :D
  12. Get the plain vanilla 7870. Factory over clocks are dumb, because if you wanted to have higher clock rates, you would do it yourself.

    7870 is like $250, so right smack dab on your budget :)

    Very good graphics card for the money btw, you won't regret it!

    I dont mean to be nosy but what exactly are you buying? the only reason i ask is there are certain minor thing's you can be scabby on ATM and revisit later just to maximize on your GPU budget just remember the GPU is the most costly if not second most costly component in any build so you want to get it right the first time around
  14. Thank you everyone for your info!! i have found the card i want :D the GTX 660 FTW signature 2!!

    im going with the gtx 660 FTW signature 2 2GB card, rosewill capstone 550w PSU, Western Digital WD Black 1tb 7200rpm HDD, G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB 4x2GB DDR3 1333 ram, and rosewill RANGER case. if u can give any advice to save money please do so lol
  16. is this going to be your boot drive? Western Digital WD Black 1tb 7200rpm HDD
    do you have other hard drives laying around? the reason i ask is because you can salvage the drive or drives you currently have use them in this build piss the WD black drive off and opt for the OCZ Agility 3 60 GB for $65 bucks so not only are you saving money but you getting a better drive and improved performance. its just things like that you should consider. good luck with your build
