Hey guys, im looking to get a new graphics card, just wondering what i could/should get for my money;

my budget is around £250-300

I should probably mention, im going to be gaming on a 32 inch monitor for the time being, but i have no intention of playing on multiple screens;
game will include all the latest rpg's to shooters

by 32" monitor I assume you mean a 32" TV.

Most 32" TVs are 1366x768 resolution and all of those cards would be overkill at that resolution.

And you should get the 7950. it'll give you enough to max all games at 60 fps (or around there) for the next few years. the 7970 and 670 isn't that much of a improvement for the extra money.

Then get an LCD screen as well, given that TV fps are mostly limited to 30 fps.
You need 60 fps for smooth game play.

All TVs are 60hz...



And dare. It all depends on the time frame of your upgrade. if you're gonna upgrade within a year, get the GTX 670. if not, then just get a 7950 and save that money for a future upgrade of both the monitor and gpu.

Depends on the TV set, some have input lag, hence high fps will just cause tearing on the screen.

7950 is a great card. OCs really well aswell, in case you're still stuck for performance. I recommend it.

Also, getting a proper monitor with 1920x1080 resolution (even if its gonna be smaller than your TV) will still look soooo much better than playing at 1366x768.

My PC Gamer mind is telling me how silly 32 inch TVs with a resolution of 1366x768 actually are; each pixel must be like a cm squared lol
