New low end gpu

Hello, I'm look for a new gpu put put in a casual gaming/high end "normal use" computer. I'm thinking of the 7770, 650 ti, or 7850. These are the cards I'm looking at. The 7770s have dropped in price to a good $119.99, $105.99 after rebates.
7770: Powercolor: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814131477
Sapphire: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814202011
650 ti: Evga: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130838
Zotac: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814500286
MSI: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127704
7850: Sapphire: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814202004
I'm lean towards the sapphire 7770 because of the low price, if anyone want's to suggest anything else, $189.99 is the ABSOLUTE MAX.
Thanks in advance.

    The 7770 is definitely good for the price. If you don't want to spend that much then get that. It should handle casual gaming just fine (depending on how you define it). Otherwise get the 7850 if you are planning on playing games like BF3 on high settings
  2. I haven't actually seen anything on any cards except for the EVGA 650Ti. My friend recently (has about 2 months play time) built a computer with that card. He LOVES it. His computer is great for modern games (Planetside 2 (he plays this a lot on high, no frame drops), Borderlands 2, AC3) and works with games like Metro, etc. He can't play BF3 on ultra in 1080p at 60 frames, but I would say this is the card you should go with.

    Just because your friend likes it doesn't mean OP should get it. Sure the 650ti is a decent card, but the 7770 is cheaper by $35 and nips the heels of the 650ti in performance.
  4. Well it depends on how tight his budget is, if $35 dollars is going to make the difference on his build, I think he should go for the 7770 (great card) but I would personally go with 650 Ti
  5. Well if you can afford it I would go with teh 7850 otherwise get the 7770 since it the best value at that those price points. I have a 6850 which is simialr to a 7770 in performance and I run my games @ 16x10 (older monitor) at High setting for the most part.

    But then he can spend another $35 for the 7850 which is much better than either card. What I'm saying is the 650ti is not very good price wise for performance. But nvidia does have phys x, which is the main reason i would choose nvidia over amd.
  7. So what 7770 would you recommend?
  8. Out of all of those cards the 7850 beats them all by far so if you can afford the 7850 get it because it will be able to play games at high settings also what country are you in because I am currently selling a 7850.
  9. 7850 will be a significant improvement over the 7770. Get it.
