i recently started building my first pc for gaming and home theater.My intention was to build the basics and improve as more funds became available. I have asus p87zz-I mobo with i5 3750k, 2X4gb corair vengeance ram,WD caviar black 1tb hd and a basic dvd rw running from a bequite 530 psu, all slotted into a bitfenix prodigy.i am planning on buying a bluray player at a later date and probably a ssd. all went really well with the build and am currently using as home theater, dvds,streaming to tv and music ect.I have been playing farcry2 and batman arkem city amongst others and am getting a bit fed up with all the jerkyness. Right now im in the market for a graphics card and heres where i need some advice. Ive looked at cards on dabs and amazon ect but i am completely clueless really, other than going on price. I would like to spend less than £120 and obviously want the biggest bang for buck(pounds). Cheers in advance curly.
Lol i am facing same situation right now >.< i have an i7-3770k and have roughly same budget. It is kind of hard to find something in that range without bottlenecking the system. If you use a geforce gtx 650 2gb supeclocked you shouldnt bottleneck it, and it also comes with assassins creed 3. Great video quality at 720-1080p. As for a home theater... you will probably need to step up to a 670-680
