APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: within the next 2 weeks
BUDGET RANGE: Before/After Rebates: $75-$120/$50-$100
USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT:
(I'm listing almost all the hardcore games from my steam library. I know the card in this range won't be able to run a lot of these, but I hope OC'ing will be able to help that. So, I just want to be able to run a majority of these games. Just Cause 2 is an extreme plus!)

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: I need it to last a long time, and I want it to be able to play almost every game up above. If I can't get a graphics card that can play most of those games above for less than 120 I might be able to go up a bit, but not much. I've researched the best cards around that price and it seems like a GeForce GTX 650 or a Radeon HD 7750 will be the best choice. Unless there is some other card I should choose to be able to run those games, what I'm having trouble choosing now is what brand. I do want to be able to overclock, but really only if I can't run most of the games on my list above.
So to reiterate, I would like a card under $120, unless it won't run a single game above. I think I've narrowed it down to a GTX 650 and a Radeon HD 7750, but now I need to choose a brand that will last and be able to be overclocked (if necessary). I want it to be able to last and to also have a good warranty and good customer service. I do not have money for a case currently, but I will be choosing one after I get the graphics card. Thank you in advance for all your help.
That's not possible imo because nobody can see into the future.Two years from now games will be different more demanding no doubt.If i was you i think about saving a little more money and getting a 7850.
Thank you guys for all the help! I hadn't heard of that website before and that helped a lot too. I guess I'll just wait a little longer and get the 7770. But still on that topic, how do I choose what brand to get? EVGA, HIS, Sapphire, etc.?
