So , here are my specs:
video card: nvidia geforce GT 220
processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5 CPU 750 @ 2.67GHz
ram: 4 gb
hard drive: 500 GB
350 watts PSU
motherboard: dell-0x231r

So i want to upgrade my PSU and my video card. I am upgrading my PSU to this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

And i cant decide between these 2 video cards... Ive read bad and good reviews on both of them, so am not sure, any help? like which one is going to run games smoother etc. 1: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Yes working now. Thanks for the fix. Actually the HD 7850 is a bit faster than the 560ti. The 560ti though is a phased out card, why don't you look for the 660ti? What is your budget as well?

At this budget, I will definitely go with GTX 660 or HD 7870. They are both great cards however the 660 is slightly faster :)

I am not sure about the motherboard. About the RAM, I guess you should upgrade to 8 to be in the safe zone. The CPU is fine.
