  1. Uses, and Nvidia or ATI?
  2. Go with a Radeon 7950. Nvidia's "competing" card is the 660ti, which isn't even close. If you can find a 670 for about $340 or less, jump on it.
  3. Do you have a good power supply? how many watts?
  4. I have a Thermaltake TR2 750w personally i dont care for nvidia or Radeon. Just more bang for buck.
    I know that i would like something hd 6950 wise. But its a last gen card and i would really like to use pci-e 3.0 as i have the ability to with my ivy bridge cpu.
  5. There is a 670 for about 340 and also a 7970 for about the same price and 7950's are about 280 hold on.


    The 670 for 329 on newegg literally just sold out. so next cheapest would be this one. 340
