Kinda expensive for my budget, I think I will get a 7750 since its like half the price.

Also I still don't have a CD drive in my PC, damnit

If you're sure you're sticking with that res, go with the cheaper card. I just upgraded from a 22" 16:10 to a 27" 1080p and am loving it. If I was paying for the upgrade, I'd have gone 1440p, but I can't really beat free.

If you might upgrade you'll want the better one.

I wasn't planning to get a better monitor any time soon so I guess I'll just buy the 7750, unless there are any better nvidia alternatives but I don't think so tongue.gif

I think i can help you with this our setups are quite similar. Here are my system specs:

AMD Phenom II X6 1055T
Gigabyte 990XA
Asus HD 7750 820Mhz
Corsair Vengeance 2X4GB 1600Mhz
Corsair CX430M
Acer X193w 1440x900 resolution

My computer runs all my games fine at medium to high settings (BF3, Skyrim, Simcity, Planetside 2 etc) But one day i wanted to record some gameplay and upload it to youtube just to show other people how surprisingly good the HD 7750 was but once i started recording with fraps skyrim started lagging hard and became unplayable even when i slightly lowered the settings. I tried a different recording program but that didn't change anything.

So in my opinion at least the HD 7750 with likely run all of your games (even most modern games) at a reasonable setting with playable FPS but if you are planning on recording i would personally buy the HD 7850 2GB because it's a smarter investment and is just overall a more powerful and capable card.

Edit: I'm not entirely sure recording was laggy because of my video card, i don't have much experience with recording video.It was probably because i have only one hard drive and the footage was saving to that as i was recording.

ASUS GTX 650-E is the only comparable NVIDIA card. The other GTX 650s need a power connector , GT 640 is slower than HD7750.

Thanks for all of your help, I think it's best if I get a 7850.

Just to be safe
