    Hi - the 7850 2g is your best bet, they are running $180 - $200, here's some to consider:

  2. Thank you I think I'm gonna go with the SAPPHIRE 100355L Radeon HD 7850 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card
    I just wanted to get everyone's advice before I choose

    Good choice (I'm a little biased tho, I have Sapphire & pleased with it)
  4. Cause I have everything ordered on that list except the graphics card
  5. And the cooler for the cpu is it even necessary. Cause I'm not gonna overclock

    aftermkt cooler not necessary if you are not going to OC
  7. The stock cooler will keep it cool enough?
  8. an aftermarket cooler isn't necessary, but I would throw $30 at one any way. If anything it'll be much less noisy.
  9. Also, a 2gig 7850 isn't necessary unless your running a 1080p monitor, I would still get one though, but at that point, a 7870, is only $30 away. Something to think about any way.

    benchmarks are always fun: http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/549?vs=548
  10. I will be running 1080p on my 31 inch panasonic tv. The thing is idk if I will have the 30 extra dollars or not yet I still have other stuff to purchase for my car and other stuff.

    Hi - keep to your budget, once you start exceeding it, it'll
    never end. The gpu's & psu's are easily upgradeable
    down the road.
  12. Yea I'm gonna stick to my budget atm
