What graphics card to buy

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

 

I'm looking at getting a graphics card to play some more games on steam and stuff. I used to play video games on the pc ages ago but recently I've been more casual playing around on the xbox and what not.

I've had a look around at the reviews of graphics cards and the AMD Radeon HD 7 and 6 series seem to be the go but I basically have no idea what sort of level of card I need. My desktop is fairly standard but not too shabby and meets the requirements for games in most areas except for the graphics card. I want to be able to play FPS and bits of everything. Doesn't need to be top of the line quality graphics or anything but I don't want it to be obsolete in a month and I'd like it to run most games in high quality. Willing to spend a couple hundred bucks on the card.

 

Thank you in advance to anyone who helps out.

Assuming the ball-park is $100-$200 for casual gaming,

 

If you lean towards AMD, the Radeon HD 7770.

 

If you lean towrads nVidia, the GeForce GTX 650 Ti.

Assuming the rest of your PC is less than 4 years old the BFYB is either A GTX660 for $238 B 7870 for $245.

Comparisons sake I have a GTX460 in my old PC which is three years old and runs Borderlands 2 fine at High settings, so the above cards should be good for 2-3 years of the same.
