I am building a new gaming rig but I don't know which graphics card to buy. I want to be able to play all games out now at atleast High or maybe Ultra settings. I am looking at these graphics cards: EVGA GTX 660 Ti or the FTW version. I am open to other cards like a Radeon, too. I would like the Graphics card to be below $300 but a little above is ok. Also any suggestions on upgrading my PSU(Around $50 or $60)? I also plan on buying a Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo.

Computer specs so far(I Already Have These):
CPU = Intel i7 2700k
Case = Cooler Master Elite 431
Mobo = AsRock z77 extreme3
PSU = Apevia 550W
RAM = G.SKILL Sniper 8GB

Any help would be greatly appreciated. If you need any more information just ask.

I'd get an HD 7950. It's a great card:

As for the power supply. If you're not planning to SLI/Crossfire in the future, get this:

Thank You for the response, but also what games are better with Radeon cards and which are better for Nvidia because I am clueless about graphics cards.

PS : This is my first build.

The only games I can think of that NVidia definitely wins is Battlefield 3 and Batman games. On other games it's pretty much a tie. The reason I am recommending an HD 7950 is because it is similarly priced to GTX 660 Ti but performs better. GTX 660 Ti is just bad purchase at its price.

Ok, Thank You. I think I will get the HD 7950 which also comes with 3 games instead of 1 with Nvidia.
