ok so I really need to change my graphic card , my computer is : Acer Aspire M3920-E4022

Specs are :

-Processor Intel Core i7 i7-2600 / 3.4 GHz / Quad cores
-RAM : 4.0 GB
-Hard Drive 1.0 TB
-Operating System Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit Edition
-Graphic card : Intel (R) HD Graphics family
-Graphics Controller Integrated

I need a graphic card that would be able to run games well , because im willing to PC Gaming. the one I have at the moment isn't good enough because it only has 64Mb , and I need one with at least 256Mb , ( Graphic card needs requirements below ) . maximum 250$.
Pixel Shader version 3.0
Icon Vertex Shader version 3.0
Icon Dedicated Video RAM 256 MB

Do me a favor and don't get the 570, yeah its got plenty of power but it's a generation old which means it uses a lot more power.

Radeon 7850 is a great choice and the Nvidia 650ti isn't far behind both of those cards are in the ($150-$170 range).

Here is a 650ti that is 16% off for $135 w/ Free shipping.

If you want to go just a bit beefier

Go with a Radeon 7870

Thanks for all the quick answers ! But yea , i think i'll go with a radeon 7850 http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681...

But is it going to fit with on my computer ?


It's hard to tell from the pictures i've seen of the case. I'm guessing it would fit fine but here are the dimensions of a Radeon 7850 9.49" x 5.39" x 1.67"..... So get out that tape measure.....

Make sure you have 10" from rear panel out, then measure from the PCI-e out to where you side panel is.... make sure you have 5.5".

I'd say i'm 99% sure that you won't have a problem.

Guys the 570 is faster look at these benchmarks these don't lie are 100% accurate http://www.videocardbenchmark.net/high_end_gpus.html


I hope you don't actually go off of that horrible comparison chart

http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/radeon-hd-7870-revi...

There you go. The GTX 570 will get you about a 2-3% boost in performance over a 7850.

The 570 has a max TDP of 220w (amount of heat/wattage) the 7850 has a max TDP of 130w.

So 2-3% boost in performance and only using 60% more power and heat than a 7850........


Just get the Radeon 7850, and if you want more power just get the 7870.

Oh, and these benches are with older drivers, the 7000 series has received a pretty big boost in performance from the latest drivers they've put out.

please tell your power supply details.tell +12v ratings on sticker of your psu.also you psu needs 6pin connector.if your psu can"t handle your gpu then your psu will become kaboom and also it might take up gpu with it.
