    Okay thanks, that looks great! Will an xfx 550w 80+ bronze certified be good enough?
  2. ^+1

    Thats a nice card, its a non-reference and its got the windforce cooler on it, so you can get some nice overclocks on it. You may also want to check out the gtx660, its a bit cheaper, and has similar performance overall.
  3. *THIS IS THE BEST DEAL BY FAR:
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814202006

    It is $285 after the rebate.

    The HD7000 (HD7950/70) cards qualify for THREE FREE GAMES (value $170). That drops your cost for this card to $130 if you had planned to buy these games anyway!

    AMD Never Settle info (note the HD7870 should come with just Far Cry 3):

    SUMMARY:
    $45 more than the other card gets you a BETTER card and $170 value in games!

    The minimum recommended is a quality 500W PSU so you should be fine as long as it has the proper connectors (probably 2x 6-pin).
  5. 7870, best deal. It plays most games on Max setting.

    Did you even READ my post?

    The HD7950 is not only a better card, but it qualifies for $170 in games!

    *So you claim the HD7850 you linked is a better deal than a better card, with three games for free at a difference of only $45? Seriously?

    **That's a FREE GAME for each of the three times you posted the other card was a better deal!!
  7. +1 for 7950 with free games, but they are about $300. It's worth the stretch
  8. If you plan on getting those games in the first place, then by all means get the hd7950.

    It's only $45 more than the card he liked earlier; and again for that you get:
    1) a better card
    2) $170 in games

    Even if you only paid $15 per game then you'd still be getting a better card for the same price ($285 - $45 for games).
