Help choosing a graphics card

What's the cheapest graphics card that can run pretty much any game on max settings for 1920-1080 resolution. I'm asking because I dont want to spend more money for a graphics card thats ment to run max settings on a higher resolution.

(Im currently playing Tera, GW2, modded skyrim but wanting a enb for it, I plan on playing mainly mmorpgs in the future with some rpgs like witcher 3.)

  1. what is ur budget on gfx card? i can say a 660ti
  2. Dont have one just dont want to get one to powerfull for what I need
  3. sapphire vapor-x 7950 hands down.
    extreme bang for ur buck and overclocks like crazy!
    brilliant card :p
  4. HD7870 Tahiti LE or you can say POWERCOLOR HD7870XT myst
  5. I dont plan on overclocking XD
  6. I was going to get a 7970 but I thought that was overkill for what I need

    why not overclock? :pfff: it's both easy and fun... and definitely don't consider buying a 7900-series card if u don't wan't to oc, then rather stick with a 660ti or 670 which is better at factory settings. a complete waste though, since a 7950 rock'em out of the ballpark when oc'ed, for at least the same or less money... also incredible temps and silent as well ;)
  9. ofc talking about the vapor-x :D
  10. I was going to get a 7970 but I thought that was overkill for what I need
  11. Well I dont want to overclock because I read that they lower there lifespan and you dont really get that big of a performance boost in games from it.
  12. if gng for 7970.. do chkout the ROG MAtrix platinum one.

    Also 680ti oced @ factory settings.
  13. Oh also another reason why I'm not going for overkill for future proof is because when I do need to upgrade I plan on going sli or crossfire. Sorry forgot to mention that

    doesn't necessarily shorten the lifespan- if u overclock at acceptable voltages while still get a massive increase and good temps (which is exactly what the 7950 does) the lifespan won't change, look it up :) the vapor-x is known for getting +30% performance increase at completely safe voltages while keeping the EXACT same temps as non-oc'ed! with these overclocks it easily exceeds both the 670 and reference 680/7970!
  15. Where can I find a vapor-x 7950? No vapor-x on newegg and only a vapor-x 7970 on tiger direct
  16. Found one on amazon http://www.amazon.com/Sapphire-DL-DVI-I-SL-DVI-D-PCI-Express-11196-09-40G/dp/B009MML1UA for 392 and free shipping you think thats a fair price?

    For a Dane like me that would be an extraordinary offer, but that isn't valid since everything is more expensive here than in the states anyway :fou:
  19. Oh that sucks man :(. But thank you for helping me figure out a gpu to get ^.^. Im going to go ahead and grab the vapor-x 7950 thanks everyone.
