Hey, im new to the forums so go easy on me :) 

I'm going to upgrade some things in my gaming PC and im not sure what GPU to get.

My current specs:

CPU - I5 2500K
Motherboard - P8P67 -m
Ram - 4Gb HyperX
PSU - Corsair GS600
Hard Drive - 1TB
GPU - Powercolor 6870 1GB

Upgrades:

Ram - Corsair PC3-12800 1600Mhz 16GB Vengeance Blue CL10 (2x8GB ) DDR3
GPU - ????
Hard Drive - Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB 7200RPM 32MB SATA II 3.5
PSU - Corsair GS800W 80 PLUS Bronze

At the moment my GPU is ATI but now i want a Nvidia graphics card, at first i saw the MSI GTX 670 but i got money for a GTX 680.

Can you guys recommend a good graphics card for my system? (you can suggest other hardware that might be better than what im going to buy)

Your hardware is good.you want nvidia so i reccomend to get gtx 670 which can easily maxout games and also good for future.get atleast 2gb gpu

ok i would sugest you to buy the msi gtx 670
its a brilliant card and it can max almost every game in ULTRA HIGH

the gtx 680 is also a brilliant card but the difference between the gtx 670 and gtx 680 is little (very little) so the gtx 670 would be a better choice and you can save money for other upgrades

msi gtx 670 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... (389 $)

EVGA GTX 680 https://www.google.com/shopping/product/145296898056877... (465$ and the ugly reference design)

GTX 670 will be a better Buy.

Its just a little slower than 680 (6%).
Which isn't worth the difference ($100)

And if you get the GTX 670, Get MSI Power Edition.
Its a beast Overclocker.


And you don't need to upgrade to a GS800.
GS600 is a good enough to handle your Rig.

At first i was going to buy the MSI GTX 670 PE OC as in all the reviews i read they said it was as good as a stock 680 or sometimes even better.

btw i have a CoolerMaster 430 Elite case and i want to OC my CPU but since my case is not that big the only CPU cooler i saw that fits my case was the Hyper212 Evo.

Does anyone know if its good or does someone recommend other Cooler?
