Need Help Choosing GPU For My First Build. Can Purchase In 1 Week
Mar 13, 2013, 3:52 PM
I can purchase the GPU in about 2 days, 1 week tops
My budget range is $150-250 Before rebates
I want to be able to play Battlefield 3 on Ultra or High and for watching movies.
I am currently using the on-board graphics of my i5-3570k and my PSU is a Corsair HX750 750watt
Motherboard- MSI Z77A-GD65
Memory - 8GB Corsair Vengeance Series
Case- Corsair C70 Mid-Tower Case
I would like to order it from Newegg.com or Amazon.com because i get free 2day shipping.
I would like the option to Overclock, just in case i decide to do so later on. SLI or Crossfire isnt really important to me.
Monitor Resolution is 1920x1080
Thanks for your help

Sapphire HD 7870 GHz Edition is going to be your best option
Or if you're an Nvidia fan, the GTX 660 SuperClocked from EVGA is the best option
Both can play Battlefield 3 on Ultra at playable FPS, but the 7870 will perform just a bit better
Hope i Helped

The hd 7870 xt is also a good choice, performs between the 7870 and 7950 because it has the same chip as the 7950.
