Alright, so I plan on getting a new graphics card soon, just want to know. What would be the best graphics card to get thats under $350. I would like to stay with NVIDIA (or companys that build of the NVIDIA like MSI 660ti)

I really dont want to go over $350 I mean maybe like $10 but thats it.

I will be playing many different games I would like to play at MAX settings. My screen is 1920x1080 HD screen so its only wise to get a graphics card that can support HDMI.

Games I play (Just to name a few)

Skyrim
Arma2/OA
GTA 4 (graphics enhancer)
Planetside 2
and many others.

I mean would the 660TI be a good card. I would probably go to best buy and get it as its only $15 more and I don't have to deal with it if it comes dead as I can just run it back.

Also on a spare note, what would be some really good and fast RAM for my motherboard?

If your cool with a amd card Sapphire's HD 7950 Vapor-X comes with a large dual-fan cooler that uses the company's famous vapor-chamber technology. On the Vapor-X you will also find a "Lethal Boost" button which switches to a second BIOS with higher clock speeds. With this BIOS, clocks are increased to 950 MHz GPU and 1250 MHz memory.

If you're really hellbent on staying with nVidia then the MSI N670 PE bigcyo mentioned is really good. Are you sure there's no way to convince you to play for the red team? The 7950 is really really good lol. :)
