Is this GPU overkill for these games?

My current build I'm putting together has a Gigabyte GeForce GTX 670 2GB, and the PSU is a XFX 550W ATX12V / EPS12V. The games I want to play are:

-Runescape (Max graphics AA*4 and bloom enabled)
-CoD4 Max settings
-League of Legends
-Minecraft

That's about it really. Is there a cheaper GPU/PSU combo that will do the job for me?

If there is, could you please give me a list of ones that are.

They must be:

Compatible with: MSI Z77A-G43 ATX LGA1155 Z77 DDR3 2PCI-E16 1PCI-E1 3PCI SATA3 DVI HDMI VGA DX11 USB3.0 Motherboard

And fit in this case: Cooler Master HAF 912 ATX Mid Tower

Thank you :) 

Also, my monitor is going to be a 23" 1920 x 1080.

Go with something more reasonable.. The 7770 will max out all those games with ease. :D 




Here is the highest quality 7770

Awesome. Do you recommend a certain PSU? The one that is currently on my list is the XFX 550W ATX12V / EPS12V. Is this too much or too little, or is it fine?

If you have the budget I'd say stick with that GPU since it has lots of life in it and you never know when you'll make the jump into 2010!

That's why I'm downgrading. I'm over budget and I don't play very demanding games so the GTX 670 is just way more money than I need to spend :p

7850 if you are really trying to go low ($150 at newegg) or the 7950 at $310 if trying to go down a little. Hrm - 660ti is $270 - guess it all depends on what you're trying to drive down to.

Edit; Just read this :)

I'm roughly 150-250 over my $1000 budget. I'm replacing the GTX 670 with a Radeon 7770 that is only $110 and runs everything I need it to with ease :p

Or may be get A GTX 660. Its in the same range of your suggested budget and its much better than the 7850.

$219 after rebate including a free copy of Assassin Creed III

That would put me $100 over budget and I'd have to go back to where I started (being frustrated trying to make it all fit under $1000 budget).

Edit: Besides, I don't even like AC lol :p

I thought your budget is 150-250. But anyway, go with the best that fit your needs :)
