Which Graphics Card???

Hi All

So I'm waiting on delivery for my new rig due on Wednesday its going to be one for me to tinker with for the next year before I invest heavily into a serious gaming rig. I just wanted some advice on compatibility a variety of possible Graphics Cards

Here's my build....

Black Vantange Gaming Case
i5-3450 Intel CPU - (3.1GHz)
8GB DDR3 RAM - (1333MHz)
500gb Sata III Hard Drive, 7200RPM
Asus Motherboard P8H61MXUSB3
NVidia GTX650Ti 1GB GDDR5 RAM

I would like to purchase a new graphics card but I am unsure of which would best suit my current system (Budget £75-£150)...Best value for money would be best.


Thanks in advance!

  1. Hi. If your monitor resolution is 1920 x 1080 or higher, the only thing missing is a better graphics card for it to be considered a serious gaming build. The only graphics card within that budget is the HD 7850 and it's just the next step above the GTX 650 Ti. The GTX 650 Ti is a good card at smaller resolution but also a capable one at 1920 x 1080. That might not make it worth upgrading unless you are willing to sell the GTX 650 Ti and buy a much better card such as the HD 7870 or GTX 660 or even higher (and maybe a better PSU too).
  2. 7770-7870. The 7850 2GB is still the best deal out there. I recommend one from Sapphire.
  3. Sapphire Ultimate HD 6670 1GB GDDR5- No fan and its $85. I can play skyrim on ultra in 1920x1080 on high settings.

    LOL you can "Play" at those settings. You wouldn't want to though...
  5. I would just start saving your money and get something in the higher mid to high graphic card market. A 650Ti should hold you over for a little while and then you can move to something like a 660Ti, or a 7870.

    +1. No need to upgrade unless you are able to easily sell your 650 Ti to some and you want to buy a 7870+.
  7. Agreed a 7870+ (Tahiti) as example used could be a good option as a upgrade path however I would say let things play out with the new graphic cards rumor or not slated now for Q4 I would suspect that graphic card prices will tank this summer if they do not have a card by then.
