Need Help Choosing GPU For My First Build. Can Purchase In 1 Week

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 :D

  1. Sapphire HD 7870 GHz Edition is going to be your best option
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814202025

    Or if you're an Nvidia fan, the GTX 660 SuperClocked from EVGA is the best option
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130826

    Both can play Battlefield 3 on Ultra at playable FPS, but the 7870 will perform just a bit better

    Hope i Helped :)
  2. The hd 7870 xt is also a good choice, performs between the 7870 and 7950 because it has the same chip as the 7950.
