Card Decision Help Please!

November 12, 2012 1:34:36 AM

Hi folks!

I want to upgrade an existing desktop. I have in the past gotten by with onboard graphics controllers but I have gone without for far too long now. I enjoy gaming but I am not a hardcore type of gamer. Getting high FPS is nice and all but I am not looking at dropping 2/3 to 3/4 of my budget on the Graphics Card.

I am at the initial stages of the plan and have been trying to catch up from the last 5 years on Graphics (like I said, been out of it FAR too long).

Anyway, what I do know is that I will be running an AMD CPU (partially dependent on which Graphics Card I go with obviously) with Windows 7. Most likely 64 bit.

I enjoy the Call of Duty and Battlefield Franchises but It has been several years since I played anything other than COD 4 on the PC.

I am looking around the $200 price point. Am I being realistic with that budget figure for the card that can handle the BF and COD newer releases?

Thanks for the input!
