Best graphics card for the price?

Im currently in the process of building a gaming PC, and I need a decent graphics card for the price. I could use any advice. Im looking for something for NO MORE THAN $200. My computer specs are ASUS P8Z77-V LX Intel 7 Series Motherboard, Intel i5 Quad Core Processor (Unlocked)/(I do not plan on overclocking), Western Digital 1TB HDD, 8GB Vengeance DDR3. Any advice is appreciated, thanks!

UPDATE: I was scouring the internet and found this...$19 over my $200 limit but I can deal with it. http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=4501133&CatId=7387

    that is a great card. I have two of them in SLI right now. Quite and Cool.
  4. I like what I saw on the 660, if you would've said around 200 I probably would've suggested one. Though probably this one.

    Does it run games with good quality? Im mainly looking to play DayZ once my build is complete.
  6. I don't play DayZ, but BF3, SC2, CODMW2 (when I only had one hooked up) would play them all on High to ultra with 60 FPS at 1080P. With 2 in SLI, everything is cranked up all the way with no problem at all.

    If I wanted to run 2 graphics cards, would it matter what brand? How exactly does running 2 graphics card at the same time work?
  8. You would have to have a few things to make it work....

    A PSU that will support two GPU's (some gpu's require two PCI-e power connections, some only 1) The EVGA GTX 660 would require 1 each. And the PSU would have to be a quality one from this chart with at least 600w

    You would also have to have a MOBO that supports SLI, Cross Fire or both (depending on the card)

    And, you would have to have two cards that can be connected together in SLI (Nvida) or Cross Fire (AMD)

    Last, you would have to have a bridge that connects the two cards

    For 1 Monitor at 1080P, one card (7850/GTX660 or above) is usually enough for high graphic settings in most games.
  9. Basically, Running two gtx 660's in SLI is slightly better than 1GTX 680 or 1 AMD 7970...

  10. Buy a 660 its better than 7850. A little more over you limit is worth it!

    I ass/u/me you mean the i5-3750K. If you DO NOT plan to overclock, step down to the Intel Core i5-3350P. The performance difference is negligible, you're really paying for the chance to overclock. $40 or so in your pocket.
