If you get a gtx 770- 399.99, you can stream to nvidia shield

770- you get Assassins creed 4, splinter cell, and batman for free, and the shield for 199.99

What is the shield??

Its a portable device made to play games for Android OS. Though the technology it has in there is better than the 3DS and PSP Vita.

Nvidia shield- it can have pc steam games streamed to the device using your gtx gpu.

Google it, YouTube it. It's awesome

I see it looks great but I guess it outside my Budget, and also what is the "mantle" I keep hearing about in AMD cards?

Also can an AMD card emulate 3D if I have no 3D monitor like Nvidia?

Mantle is a API setup where individual cores are dedicated for gaming- it coul help gaming a lot, but in the future an it is still at least two years away before it might be widely used

Wait until Battlefield 4 comes out retail, try it out, see how much better it runs out of beta. Decide where to go from there. Probably just a video card, call it a day.
You can buy a $500 console and a $500 computer and have two crap machines, or you can spend $1000 building your own computer and have the best of both worlds.

Well thanks so far to everyone for their responses.

1.-I like the 7970... but somehow I am not sure if getting one is a good idea, I see the video card is from 2012 and I donīt want to repeat the story with the HD 5770, and make this upgrade to be a really worthy one that last at the very least 5 / 6 years (if possible as I am very aware there is no such thing as "future proof")

I really donīt know how good or bad are at this point the 7950 or the 7970.

2.-In the other hand the GTX 770 someone adviced me to get here... it looks great but it is $100+
(and I am not very interested in the shield thing) But I am actually considering this. Is this a good card?

If I buy this how long do you guess it can last me before I need to cash down another big buck to keep playing?

3.-And finally.... the i5 650 @ 3.2 Ghtz I have, even if I get one of these, what if the processor make a bottle neck for it?

4.-What should I get? none and stay for now with my current one + New Graphic card? an i5? a i7? which version is the best of each?

Discover it all in the next episode of DBZ.....

Get an i7 860 or 875K. If you overclock it then your performance will be just as good as the i7 processors out now.

And then all you need is a modern graphic card(7950/7970/HD 280x). Those cards are just as strong as the $400 GTX 770. It's also a huge jump over the 5770. I had a 5770 and going to the 7950 was a big leap.

any card will last 5/6 years, it all depends on how you play your games. I think you mentioned that your current card plays everything at decent enough settings for you. so if you're going from a 5770, an upgrade to a 7770 would be a happy leap for you, so getting a 7970 will, if past experience is an indicator, last you just as long, if not longer.

Thanks again for all the advises.

About that last one comment, I was talking about a graphic card that can be able to run games at "decent" quality few years ahead, because if I am going to invest it better be something worthy.

In 2010 when I got the HD 5770 many people told me "Is ok go ahead and get that you will be fine" then less tan 2 months after that "Lol so outdated, what did you expected? you wonīt be able to run anything with that POS card" etc.... same happened with the processor, and this is what I want to avoid.

So... to finish this:

What should I get i5 or i7?

I am TOTAL NOOB in this and donīt know what is the EXACT model or series for each processor that is "better" nowadays to run games. I have no idea and also what speed should it have?

Second... I know the 7950 or 7970 are a very good upgrade for my current card, but at this point anything is so this is not a good parameter for anything.

Again, if I am going to cash the bucks what should I get? Nvidia or AMD?

Also what could be a good card that wonīt be outdated garbage in 1 year or less?

Thanks again and sorry for all the questions but I really want this to end and not spend a single buck in hardware for a couple of years because this is being too expensive for me already with 2 builds in less tan 4 years
