Hello I am building a computer, so far I only have a gigabyte z77-ds3h (no amazing I know), and a case. I plan on using an i5-3570k, w 8 gb ram, and all the other less important stuff. So far I am thinking of a 7850 for my gpu maybe a gtx 660 (not ti, I cant afford it). Is there graphics card for less, that would deliver decent performance on high or ultra for games like planetside2, metro, saints row, battlefield 3 (and 4 if they make one)? I have looked at gtx 560 and 570 ti, 6850 cards, but ive seen benchmarks and hey are good, but no great. Any help?

realistically I don't have a budget but im not willing to spend much more then 200 on a gpu, and I will go with probably a 600 or 750w psu, 8gb of 1666mhz ram, some dvd writer reader thingy, 1tb hdd at least, i5 3570k, gig z77-ds3h mobo, cooler master elite 430 black and then the gpu

If 7850 is all you can afford, then go for it. If you're will to spend a little bit extra, get the 7870XT (Tahiti LE). It's a lot faster and doesn't cost all that much more.

what is the price point of that, if it is a bit over 200 I will do it cause I doubt the i5 would bottle neck

I would not be surprised if I spend 700-750 on it, but not much more, or it will take me forever to save up the money

Is this for gaming? You'd be a LOT better off spending less on the CPU and more on the graphics card.

it will be but I am getting the i5 to be future proof (ik about haswell), but I do not plan on upgrading for a couple years (cpu and mobo), I will only up my gpu because it is a gaming rig.the i5 should handle better cards than a 7850, and even 7870 (which I found some for cheap), or better as I upgrade later on
