Hey there.

I started noticing that my graphics card is quickly becoming obsolete, as if it wasn't to begin with...
I have the AMD Radeon HD 6670, and it can't run Crysis 3 at any good settings so I decided I need a new card.

Long story short - I'm looking at two good combos on NewEgg right now.
I'm currently looking at two that fit my price range and my standards:

and

My current build is:
CPU: AMD FX-4100 3.60Ghz
MoBo: Gigabyte M68MT-S2 with a NVIDIA GeForce 7025 chipset / nForce 630a (southbridge)
RAM: 8GB DDR3
Graphics: AMD Radeon HD 6670
PSU: TurboLink 500W-BK 12v

As you can see, I would need to update my PSU if I update my card... So that's why I'm looking for a combo.

From the two that I linked - what do you think would be the best choice? And if neither, please link me a better combo (preferably under $300).

Thank you.

Either way the 7770 out performs the 650Ti I would go with the 7770 combo. And its a little cheaper I vote for the 7770. At 1920x1080 that is a good price/combo.

Alright thank you.

IMO I think it probably will run just fine, but do you know how well Crysis 3 would run on this?

If you could stretch for the 2 gigabyte you could do that but yea for Crysis 3 you would be more suited with a 2 gigabyte mid level card.

And also overclock your cpu with cpu cooler as it can bottleneck with some games due to poor single threated performace of fx4100.
