I know everyone gets tired of these questions, But help

I have and old NVIDA GeForce 8800 GTS card and need to upgrade to get smoother graphics. I do somegaming and some video work.

System:
Desktop - big case
550 W PS
ASUS P7P55D-E MB
i5 760 2.80 GHZ

An on line person at Tiger Direct recommended a EVGA GeForce 620. I see on line GeForce 630, 660, 680.

Any recommendations here would help.

if you're doing video work (and it has gpu acceleration) you should get a amd gpu.


But ya.All depends on your budget...
$100: AMD 7750
$150: AMD 7770
$200: AMD 7850

Actually, more software for video editing uses CUDA from Nvidia. This is especially true if you are using Adobe products. AMD will have no acceleration (I have tried both Radeon and Fire Pro cards). If I were in the market for a video card right now though and it was mostly for games, I would go with the 7850. If you are editing enough to warrant a compatible card, go with a 660gtx. I actually used a 7850 until I started editing more often and then sold that and bought a 570 gtx (you can get them for around 200 bucks now).
