You see, I'm building a new rig and these are the things I've put into recommendations for myself:

Intel i5-3570k
x1 SSD (200GB +)
x1 HDD (1TB+)
XTX Radeon HD 7850

Ok so I've been on the internet searching reviews about this and they said that they sometimes get fuzzy images when playing in dark games (StarCraft II & LoL). I've been kind of worried if the card will do the same to me. I want to get a card that will run games like GTA IV smoothly on like Medium/High settings (doesn't have to be ultra). So if the card does have any problems with it then can you recommend me another card under my tight £150 budget? Also, I might be overclocking it. My screen resolution is 1920 x 1080

If your really nice, my budget is £500-£600 so if you could suggest me a entire rig, I would appreciate that (Like SSDs/HDDs & Power Supply etc).

Out of Curiosity I did a google search with the keywords (7850 fuzzy) and got a few hits. I then did a search for (gtx 660 fuzzy) and got even more hits.

I don't think their is a problem with either manufacture or model. I think the reviews you are reading are likely the result of other factors with that user's configuration or monitor.

As long as you pick a quality AIB vendor for your card I think you will have nothing to worry about.

Hi, I am currently browsing for the best graphics card under £200 for my new rig.

I found these three:

MSI NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 Graphics Card - 2GB
http://www.scan.co.uk/products/2gb-msi-gtx-660-oc-28nm-pcie-30-(x16)-6008mhz-gddr5-gpu-1006mhz-boost-1072mhz-cores-960-dport-dl-dvi
£160


XFX Core Edition Radeon HD 7850 AMD Graphics Card - 2GB
http://www.scan.co.uk/products/2gb-xfx-radeon-hd-7850-core-edition-4800mhz-gddr5-28nm-gpu-860mhz-1024-cores-dvi-hdmi-mdp
£138


XFX Radeon HD 7870 Core Edition AMD Graphics Card - 2GB
http://www.scan.co.uk/products/2gb-xfx-radeon-hd-7870-core-edition-4800mhz-gddr5-28nm-gpu-1000mhz-1280-cores-dl-dvi-hdmi-mdp-plus-4
£162


Ok, I'm on a tight budget of £500 for this rig so if I would have chosen out of the three I would have gone for the 7850. Also, I don't want answers saying the 660 is the best and so. Tell me why I shouldn't get the other models and why I should get the 660. Also, tell me the problems that I would get if I get the 7850. Lastly, I would like to say my screen resolution is 1920 x 1080 and the games that I'll be playing is GTA IV/San Andreas & Saints Rows The Third. I might not overclock.

PS: I have an i5-3570k

So if I go with the XFX Radeon 7850 2GB and I want a dual monitor (play a game on one and surf the net on the other), will any problems occur?

There shouldn't be any issues.
