I'm deciding to build my very first gaming rig, but I don't know what graphics card to choose. I'm on a budget and I don't want to spend more than around $500 maybe $550. I don't care for ultra and max settings, but I do want to be able to play the latest games at at least 30+ fps at at least medium-high settings (even games like far cry 3) . Also I want to be able to use texture mods for older games like Fallout 3. I'm using a 24 inch TV that is Full HD and has a PC plug in and obviously HDMI.
If you have any suggestions that could save me money and/or get me a better product for a better deal I'd love to know. I heard the Saphire 7750 is a low performance graphics card so I am a little sketchy on that, but otherwise I feel solid about the rig.
I would definitely consider upping the anti slightly with the HD 7770. It is worth the $10-15 dollar difference and is my choice for $119. Good Luck. The H61 might require a bios update since you are going to pick up an Ivy Bridge CPU which would be an unpleasant experience for a first time builder.
