Hey,
I'm looking for a cheap graphics card (100-200 euros(around 100 would be best)) to play the new released games like Black Ops 2, Crysis 3 and the not newly released Battlefield 3 on high or ultra Graphics.
Currently I'm experiencing lag on low settings Black Ops 2 and around Medium on Battlefield...
I'm not really sure why because some youtubers played Battlefield 3 on "Ultra" graphics and had 60 fps. For me, it lags and is hardly playable as soon as I go over "low".
Could you either tell me if something is wrong or recommend a good, cheap graphics card? Cause I just bought mine... :/ 

Thanks in advance! :) 
Here's the specs:

Specs:
- Monitor is 22" 1920x1080 and a second 16" 1280x1024
- CPU: Intel COre i5 3570K quad-core @3,40 GHz
- Current GPU: Inno3D GeForce GT 630 4GB
- RAM: 8 GB (2x4GB)
- Drives: 64 GB SSD, 1 TB HDD
- Motherboard: ASUS P8Z77-M
- Powersupply: 650W

a 630 isn't really meant for gaming...a 660ti would do wonders for you......

I just tryed Crysis 3 Beta with my current Graphics Card and even on all "low" settings it wasn't playable.. I could hardly see where I was going due to the lag...

Do you mean red and green according to the price or the power of the graphics card?

It's quite expensive BUT is it good enough to play Black Ops 2 or Battlefield 3 on full "Ultra" settings and 1080p? Coz then I'd pay that price...




Black Ops 2 yes...Battlefield 3 on ultra no...then your talking an overclocked 670 or a GTX 680...never the less you could probably come close with 660ti just turn some of the eye candy down a little

Hahaha :D  I'm just not sure if the GTX 660 2GB or that one is better... I just bought my current one and noticed how bad it is and I don't wanna do the same mistake again :p

it does beat the vanilla 660 in 3DMark.....and thats the standard 7850,the double D 7850 is a faster card..... ;)  ......Oops I read that wrong the 7870 beats out the 660


here's a comparison of the regular 7850 vs several other cards..... http://community.futuremark.com/hardware/gpu/AMD+Radeon...


that 785A sure does have some killer cooling built into it
