My price limit is around $150, but I'd prefer to pay a little less or a little more for a good deal.

What do you mean by resolution? My computer screen's resolution? I'm running a dual-screen setup, a 19" and a 21" - I'm not home right now and I'm not sure of their exact specs.

For that price you can get a 7850 1GB or if you want a little cheaper the 650 ti gtx and will be much better.

I built a system like yours for a friend and used a GTX 560 SE and it runs great no problems and runs all the games he likes. The GTX560 SE was like $120, which fit his budget.

Please get a 7850. For your sake, for my mental health, please do it. I don't know why anyone is suggesting a low-end Nvidia card over a 7850; low-end Nvidia falls on the wrong side of the value curve, whereas the 7850 maximizes the value function.

Is this compatible with my setup? I'll buy it now if so - it looks pretty good.


Yes it's an excellent card and it will be compatible.

However, just as prototype18 suggested, I'd be worried about the power supply. For the same price, you could have got the Corsair TX-650 v2 which has better components and solid reputation. I doubt that this Raidmax is as reliable and would really give you 700-Watt, I wouldn't push it too much, but for a single 7850 you should be ok.

Because if he's not overclocking, the factory overclocked EVGA GTX 650 ti (1071mhz) at $180 or a mildly factory overclocked GTX 650 ti's (980mhzish core) at around $160 will outperform a stock clocked 7850 priced at $170-180???

the only question is if he's ever going to overclock or pony up the extra $10+($195+) for the factory oced 7850......

Yes, its compatible and its more powerful than a 6870 and has a lower power consumption, that psu will do for such card.
In my opinion the best card within the price range, its like this 7850>6870>650 ti
