Upgrading my graphics card to play 1080p decently well.

#1Meno8Posted 8/14/2013 2:36:47 PM
I'm looking to upgrade my 7750 amd card since I've heard it's pretty weak compared to today's standards. I'm looking to connect my HD tv and play new games at 1080p at a decent quality (medium-high). Any recommendations would be great.

My computer:
16GB ddr3 ram
i7 3770k 3.5 GHz
generic 700 watt PSU
AMD Radeon HD 7750 2GB



Budget is $200-250. Thanks.

How about a 760 or a 7950?

Both good choices. I'd go with the 7950 if you want the free games it comes with.

You can get a 7950 for $250. That would be my choice. Specifically, the MSi Twin Frozr III 7950. Overclock it and get 7970 performance for $100 less.

Either that or a 760. The 760s are around the same performance (better or worse depending on the game) and many models are clocked higher than the 7950s (however, if you're okay with overclocking, then it doesn't really matter as the 7950 is a great card to overclock) and I prefer Nvidia support/features, but the 4GB versions (the ones I'd recommend) are above $250 (around $300)

SLI 760's for better than Titan performance or wait till 8000 series from AMD in October.

I have a 760 and I love it. Specs are in my sig and I play games at 1080p at very high, if not max settings. I have to turn down AA on games like Far Cry 3 and Witcher 2 to get 60fps, but they still look amazing.
