Need help deciding what graphics card to get

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)

More about need deciding graphics card
  1. 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
  2. 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=N82E16814127685&nm_mc=KNC-GoogleAdwords&cm_mmc=KNC-GoogleAdwords-_-pla-_-Desktop+Graphics+Cards-_-N82E16814127685&gclid=CNLcrJfO77QCFQNd3god82AAZg (389 $)

    EVGA GTX 680 https://www.google.com/shopping/product/14529689805687799564?hl=en&q=gtx%20680&oq=gtx+680&gs_l=products-cc.3..0l10.40433.42764.0.43019.7.5.0.2.2.0.94.413.5.5.0...0.0...1ac.1.VgyKzgMqrXw&sa=X&ei=Dgz4UJuYEsnXtAboi4GwDQ&ved=0CG8Q8wIwAA (465$ and the ugly reference design)
  3. Go with gtx 670 without any worries
  4. 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?
  6. Cm hyper 212 is one of the best cooler.you are good to go.
