Hello community :hello: 
(First of all I live in South Africa and newegg is not avaliable to me although there is a site similar to newegg here,but what are your thoughts about buying gpu's on ebay?)
I need some advice from the experts out there.I have a gigabyte Gtx550ti (http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=...)And now I feel I need the upgrade.
My specs:

Mobo:MSI 880GMS-E35(FX)

GPU:Gigabyte GeForce GTX 550 Ti

RAM:8gb ddr3 dual channel (1333Mhz)

CPU:Amd Phenom II X4 945 (@ stock 3.00ghz)

PSU:Cooler Master extreme power plus 500w

And I have a 1600x900 20"lcd samsung monitor.

I have $250 to upgrade and I will be getting a new gpu.The HD7850,With my current psu that is as high of a card I can go now I am afraid.So the HD7850 I will be getting is Diamond HD7850 2gb.

1.Is this Gpu brand trustworthy?(http://www.diamondmm.com/amd-radeon-hd-7850-pcie-2g-gdd...)

2.And only at 860Mhz should I save for the MSI 7850 twin?

3.And lastly will I be able to put all games on atleast high(If not ultra) on 1600x900 and get 60fps?

Thank you and sorry If I made a mistake please let me know so that it can be avoided next time,Thanks :D

Hd 7850 would be good upgrade for you.you can easily maxout games at that resolution.diamond is good brand but if fing other brand like saphhire,his,gigabyte would be good.
