I ordered parts for this build:

Intel Core i5-4570 3.2GHz Quad-Core Processor
Gigabyte GA-B85M-D3H Micro ATX LGA1150 Motherboard
G.Skill Ares Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory
Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive
Corsair Graphite Series 230T Grey ATX Mid Tower Case
Corsair Builder 430W 80+ Bronze Certified ATX Power Supply

XFX Radeon HD 7850 2GB Video Card


Newegg sends me an email saying they're out of stock on the video card AFTER accepting my payment. Now, they're just reimbursing me for the card any everything else is supposed to be on its way.

Oh, and Amazon only, if possible. I have the Prime trail and I'll be able to get it in time with the rest of the parts.

Or R9 270X, but only if you get it for $180 or less. For $250, 760 is better.

The XFX card was actually 200 on New Egg before it went out of stock. How are these cards here:

660 > 650ti

If you're willing to spend a little more then a 660 ti is a nice little jump from a regular 660. For a bit more it can get up to 20% better performance than the regular 660

Anyone knowledgeable about AMD cards can slap me for my ignorance and recommend something AMD thats better.

I 2nd the 760.
I got one for 200 on sale the other day, and I'm getting buttery-smooth gameplay from BF4 with really nice settings.

As long as you aren't doing anything extra with your monitor(s), it should take you through this generation with minor sacrifices maybe being made in a few years.
Even then, an SLI 760 wouldn't cost that much at that point.

If you get an Nvidia, you'll not be able to use Mantle, which makes a huge difference.

Get a 270X if you want a 7850 analoge,or just buy a different 7850.

DO NOT GET AMD, i say this because amd overheats, go for a gtx 660 or a gtx 760 you will get great performance out of them and will keep your pc cool. also mantel is worthless when you get physx ( adds alot more details) with nvidia.
