Upgrading Asus EAH 4890 to ??? Price 100-165

Hello TH,

I am looking for a good upgrade for my Asus EAH 4890 card.

My resolution is 1920x1080

My CPU is AMD Phenom(tm) II X4 955 Processor (4 CPUs), ~3.2GHz

I am considering the 7770 2GD5 however I am unsure how much of an upgrade it would be.

My PSU is 650 watt so that shouldn't be an issue

EDIT: After browsing abit I came across this
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814202011

Would this be a noticeable upgrade?

Thanks in advance

  1. The 7770 wouldn't be a big upgrade, no. The 4890 was one of the top cards of its day and still ranks pretty well. The 7850 would be a better upgrade performance-wise.

    this is the 7850 that I saw on the list of gpus best price of 2013 jan

    The reviews scare me however. Is there a better deal ?

    This is just a bit over $165 but has a rebate offer (price after rebate = $155)

    okay I think this might be the choice

    just to be clear this is more of an upgrade to my 4890.

    how much of an upgrade is it? Is there anything that is maybe like a little better for a better price?

    It would be hard to do better within your stated budget.
