More about upgrading video card budget
  1. Search it and get saphhire hd 7750 1gb
  2. HD 7770 is the best you can get if you just stretch your budget by ~$10, and it is quite good. It can run Skyrim on max so I think Guild Wars 2 should be just fine.
  3. Under 110d best it hd 7750 while i reccomend to add 15 dollars more and get hd 7770.

    I searched for what you suggested me on my previous post (http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/390177-33-uninstalling-intel-graphic-2000) but, Unfortunately, it doesnt seem to be available in the nearest stores here and I cant really wait for it to ship since I really need the graphic card right now :sweat:
  5. Then get hd 7770
  6. Im considering this one now:
    http://www.memoryexpress.com/Products/MX39037 - as requested by @djangoringo

    but I saw this two which are on sale and seems to be in a nifty price at the moment:

    http://www.memoryexpress.com/Products/MX42655 -Radeon HD 7750 iCooler 2GB DDR3 PCI-E w/ VGA, DVI, HDMI

    http://www.memoryexpress.com/Products/MX40353 - Radeon HD 7750 iSilence 5 1GB PCI-E w/ Passive Cooler, DVI, HDMI, DisplayPort

    What do you guys think?

    Edit: had to edit since this ones are 7750 not 7770 :(
  7. The asus is better, the icooler is DDR3, the isilence is good for quiet operations, but has lower performance and higher temperatures, same price.
  8. Go with that asus hd 7750
  9. Thanks alot guys, I appreciate all the inputs

    All I can give are thumbs up at the moment since there doesnt seem to be a +rep system in this forums
  10. Enjoy !
