im guessing his budget is in the 120-130s only the 7700 i would see as a healthy alternative at that price range.

Best solution

personally id go for this:

@OP its usually the second and third digits that matter the most the first is just the gen

ie: gt 630 is significantly worse then a 550ti, a 650ti however is a pretty decent card as well but a bit out of your budget

I agree with iceclock. In that range, a HD7770 is better. See if there are GTX650Ti cards in that range. I'm not sure I'd buy the cheapest graphics card with a given GPU though; I'd be worried about getting a poopy fan, low-quality shroud, inefficient (and potentially whiny) solid-core chokes, and otherwise a low-quality product.

also here is a link to my buid so far... I completely changed it after feedback from Kamen_BG. I'm worried about the power supply tough.

had to reduce cost in some area to get a better video card
