Graphics Card Help

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I was planning on getting an EVGA 670 FTW edition yet on both Newegg and Micro Center the price has spiked over $400 which is out my budget. What would you guys suggest for a mid-level gpu around $350?

a HD7950 such as the GB 7950 windforce 3

HD7950's have become one of the best performers for price since the new drivers have been released

I will agree with the folks above. Unless you only want Nvidia, in that case I would recommend the following 660 Ti FTW+ 3GB w/Backplate

Sapphire HD 7950 boost. this card matches GTX 670 at stock. but once overclocked HD 7950(1.15 Ghz) beats a GTX 670 (1.3 Ghz) .
