Quick graphics card advice for my computer

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone. i recently started the task of upgrading my computer. normally i would just buy a new one but i decided i may as well just stick with some parts and upgrade others. this is my current setup:
Rosewill REDBONE U3 case http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811147160
AZZA Dynamo 850w PSU http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817517003
0y2mrg motherboard (comes basic with any dell xps 8300)
4x4 Kingston hyperx DDR3 ram
intel i7 2600 processor at 3.4ghz (non OC'd and non "K" version)
and a broken amd 6750 GPU

obviously my 1st investment would be a GPU since its broken. and i was wondering which card i should go with. i have a budget of about $200.00 but $225.00 is my absolute max.

I do casual gaming, FPS like call of duty, metal of honor, maybe StarCraft eventually, but mostly i work with Autocad, 3dsMax, and adobe after effects. large video and 3D editing softwares. i would like a card that can do the work and help with render times much better then my 6750 could. OCing is a possibility, as well as any other cards you guys suggest thats near my price range.

these are the cards im currently interested in but im open to all suggestions:

just wanted to know if i chose between those 2 which i should get. i will eventually crossfire/sli them if i feel its worth it. thanks in advance

out of those two, I would choose the XFX card thumb.gif

edit: I didnt notice you would maybe be overclocking, If thats the case I would say get the 560ti. Your games will also run a little quicker. I was going off the fact i saw your budget range, and I didnt see any OC.

IMO go for the 560ti, it is 10-20% better in most games (with a couple exceptions) and only costs $30 more. I've also love EVGA. The one you linked is the AR, which has a lifetime warranty. My first EVGA was a 7800gt, it fried within a year and they sent me back a 8800gt, lets just say it made my day.
