Need Help Choosing GPU For My First Build. Can Purchase In 1 Week Tags: GPUs Build Corsair Graphics Last response: March 14, 2013 6:21 AM in Graphics & Displays Share CigarNut March 13, 2013 3:52:39 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.
