Which Graphic card to buy

Hello there,

I'm new to this community and i wanted some advice from you guys.

My current computer configuration is
Intel DP55WB (Motherboard)
i5 750 @2.66 Ghz (Processor)
4GB DDR3 (Ram)
500W (Power Supply)
XFX 8800 GTS 320 mb (video Card)

I was thinking about getting a graphic card, and I made some research on the internet and
I came across some graphic cards that meets my budget :
ATI Radeon HD 7750 and HD 7770
Nvidia 650 or 650 ti

I am basically a novice to this and had some doubts. Whether These cards would be compatible with my motherboard or do i need to change that too. Also which one should i go for. I only play games at normal settings i.e that is i don't tweak the settings. Any suggestions would be of great help

More about which graphic card
  1. ur MB is just fine since it supports PciE 2.0 16x

    but in term of GPU Choice , if u could spend a little more and go with a 7870 Ghz Edition u would get much more Performance and wouldnt' have to worry about running upcoming new games
    ( if not then the 650Ti is the way to go )
  2. Thanks for the suggestion but this one costs around $230 and i won't be able to spend that much.
    Should i go for 650Ti
  3. Best answer
    7770 < 650Ti , so yes that's the one u should get

    with this card u'll get ACIII For free and it's been OCed , so u should get better performances
  4. just one more thing. This Gpu requires PCI express 3.0 slot but my motherboard i think has a 2.0 slot, so will this be compatible
  5. yes it will ( Pcie 3.0 and 2.0 use the same "slot" )
    16x Pcie 2.0 interface is more than sufficient for a 680GTX or a 7970 , so u won't have any problem @ all .
