[Help] Picking a new graphics card?

Hey guys... this is my first graphics card purchase and I want to get the right one :/
I'm torn right now between the MSI Radeon HD 7770 and the MSi GTX 650.
They're both $70 after rebate at Newegg. (The 7770 is $70 at TigerDirect too I believe).
However, the GTX comes with Assassins Creed III and another game that I forgot the name of.

APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: Before November 27. (That's when Newegg's sale ends for the HD 7770 and GTi 650)

BUDGET RANGE: USD $80-100 after rebate

USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Gaming - Black Ops 2, League of Legends, Saints Row, I might be interested in Crysis, Halo 4, Assassins Creed III. I occassionally watch movies on my computer.

CURRENT GPU AND POWER SUPPLY: ATI Radeon HD 4200 intergrated w/ 250W power supply (will be upgrading power supply to 450W)

OTHER RELEVANT SYSTEM SPECS: Processor is AMD Athlon 640 II Quad-Core 3.0Ghz. 4GB Ram. 1TB Storage. The desktop model is HP p6710f.

PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: Doesn't really matter. As long as it's a trusted site.


PARTS PREFERENCES: I don't really have a preference. Whatever runs the best for the money.


SLI OR CROSSFIRE: Doesn't matter.

MONITOR RESOLUTION: 17-inch LCD 1024 x 768. I'm upgrading to a 26-inch 1080p TV Monitor soon.

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: I just want a new card. I'm an average gamer. Anything else you guys need to know, I'll reply.

Thanks in advance :hello:

  1. get the GTX 650 Ti. its faster than 7770 , comes with free AC3 game as well as is the same price.
  2. You want to avoid the GTX650. The non TI card is much slower then the 7770. It's slower then the GTX550TI, which is slower then the 7770. If its a choice between these two then get the 7770.

    I'm not sure what Mohit is talking about. If you can find a GTX650TI for $70 then get that for sure. I haven't been looking at the BF flyers, but its normally a ~$150 card.
  3. Go for Radeon 7770. It will let you play in good fps in 1920x1080 Low-Mid settings (Depends on games).

    And there is no Halo 4 for PC :(
  4. No Halo 4 for PC bro :( :/

    Anyway, between GTX 650 and HD 7770, you should go with HD 7770 or else buy the GTX 650 Ti version which more efficient than the GTX 650 (non Ti edition) and HD 7770

  5. Really? D: will it ever be released for PC?

    Thanks guys.
    And could someone tell me the pros and cons of both graphic cards are?
  6. GTX 650 has no advantage over 7770. 7770 dominates it completely.

    Till yet they haven't started the PC version of Halo 4. So, I guess it will never come in future too. Microsoft wants people to buy Xbox to play Halo.
