Is this a good video card

Is this a good video card I was wondering because it only used 1 6pin for power instead of the common 2x 6pins other than that it seems like a great card and I am using a HD 7770 right now and I know it it seriously bottlenecking my fx 8350 cpu.

    A HD 7770 won't really bottleneck a FX-8350. Do you have a budget? Where do you live (Just provide the country you live in, city doesn't really matter)? Tell us and we might have better graphics cards suggestions for you. As for the power connector issues you have, it's just depending on the graphics card's power needs, for example, a 6 pin power connector provides up to 75 watts of power, and a 8 pin power connector provides up to 150 watts of power. So, 2 x 6 pins = 150 watts, one 8 pin + one 6 pin = 225 watts, etc.
  2. well I really want a gtx 660 or ti but my bugdet is $200 im only running a resolutin of 1600x900 i plan to upgrade to 1080p someday. I have a Corsair Ax 850watt PSU and i draw about 250 to 320 watts i belieave from the wall.

    I assume that you live in the U.S., you can get a HD 7850 with that budget. Like this one below:

    Just $5 below your budget. :D It's a great card for the price. Even I want one as well... That PSU can even run a GTX 690 without a sweat, a HD 7850 is nothing for that PSU.
  4. yep I know I specifically bought it because of that and because If it gets shocked it won't take anything els with it ...hopefully.
