I am planing on upgrading my video card soon and am unable to decide on which would be my best choice. At the moment I am stuck between three choices.

EVGA gtx 570 1.25 gb card
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite...

MSI gtx 660 TI 2gb card
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite...

HIS radeon hd 7870 2 gb card
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite...

I'm looking to stay in the 200-300 dollar range. Any suggestions, information or other card ideas would be greatly appreciated.



PS incase specs are an issue, mine are as follows

AMD fx6120
10 gb ddr3 1600
2 x 1TB hdd
gtx 550TI 1gb (just not cutting it)
400 watt power supply (will be ordering a 650 watt when I order the card)

also while looking around I stumbled across this

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

It does seem to be the best in specs but I'm still open to advice (and also I have read a few reviews about the drivers for the newer radeon cards frequently crashing.)

I'll move this over to the GPU forum. You'll get more responses there.

What ever gpu you get dont get a cheap branded psu

hd 7850 or gtx 660 non ti is enough

both are very power efficient cards

650 watt psu is overkill a quality 500 watt psu will do,

I currently have a hd 7850 powered by a bronze 450 watt silverstone psu runs very quite even if I oc the card no coil wine

450 wouldnt work well with a higher end card like 670 or so. So its good to upgrade the psu to a bit more wattage etc
