Well you can go MUCH higher than that. Your card will do fine with any single GPU card.

Best high end card with good bang for buck, HD 7950.

This one maybe :

It really depends what you want to spend.

Take a look at this :

I would say get an epic cooler if you can afford and push your CPU. Thuban is a really good clocker and since it is getting older, you may as well.

A Coolermaster Hyper 212 Evo is a good one if you are under a budget and you may reach 4GHz. I would rather go for a Noctua NH-D14, but it is quite a bit more expensive.

If you only have around 200. That's a nice card.

Why do you want a SSD?

It would not benefit gaming except loading time. Does not improve framerate at all.


Ya your right scratch the ssd. Well I liked that last card alot cuz i found out 200 is my budget but i found a card in related search that looks almost exact same except it has more extras that come with it that I can try to resale to make my card cheaper. Any reasons not to go with this one?

Nope, if it is within your budget, go for it.
