Hi guys,

So far I have a decent PC build, well I think I do, it gets the job done. I mainly use my PC for creating a handful of audiovisual presentations for school (with AE and Vegas Pro and other software) and of course for gaming (ranging from Skyrim, AC Series, etc.)

Currently I have an NVidia GeForce 210, which many say is a weak graphics card. I guess I've already pushed it to its limits so I'm aiming to buy a new graphics card.

MY PC Specs:
Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-3570 CPU @ 3.4GHz
Motherboard: ASUS P8H61-M LX3 PLUS 2.0
Memory: 8GB RAM DDR3
Power Supply: Core Elite 600W Single Fan PSU (I think this is a generic PSU)
OS: Windows 7 Home Basic 64-Bit

So far from websites I've seen NVidia Geforce GTX650 cards are perfect for my budget range.

They are:
• EVGA GTX650 Superclocked 1GB GDDR5 128BIT (01G-P4-2652-KR)
• EVGA GTX650 Superclocked 2GB GDDR5 128BIT (02G-P4-2653-KR) (just some price difference between these two)
• EVGA GTX650Ti SSC 1GB GDDR5 128BIT (01G-P4-3652-KR) (which is my primary choice so far)
• INNO3D GTX650 1GB GDDR5 128BIT GREEN (which is the cheapest I found)

I'm also considering any AMD equivalent or better.

Thank you for any help

Well I can't give you a proper answer without knowing your exact budget but the 650ti is a solid card in it's price range that should keep you going for a while.

Thanks for the suggestions stickmansam, I'd put R9 270X in my list of choices.

One more thing, will my PSU be enough for the GPUs I want?
