Well.. I'm probably over thinking this but I now have decided it's between these 2 cards:

These two are $90 -$130 more than what I was going to previously spend but from what I have read it may be worth it in the long run.

Honestly, I would go with a 7950 that has a very good value, not to mention GPU's evolve quickly so I wouldn't bother getting the highest-end one.

This one is very nice and comes bundled with 2 games:

IDK what you have yet but this provides awesome performance and isn't too hard on the wallet.

The Corsair AX750 is cheaper than the HX750 on Amazon right now by about $10

Any downside to the AX over HX? I see the AX is fully modular so I was thinking AX but I see the HX is better rated on Newegg?

Welcome! If you're doing video editing/rendering as well why not get a 670? The extra cuda will give a massive advantage over any radeon card.thumb.gif

Care to wait like 2 or 3 more months. Cuz Haswell is expected in i think Q2??? It is literally on the horizon.

If you cant wait then my suggestion is to dock the PSU down to 650W

In all honesty gold, silver, bronze, its not that much of a difference (to me at least). 80+ Bronze would do the job just fine as it stands. To your question, nope, as far as i see it, the HX series was gettin old so Corsair replaced it with the AX series, better efficiency (although not much) and added fully modular smile.gif

A 7950 is also more worth performance per dollar wise. It has higher Vram and u can overclock it higher

Haswell isn't expected until June at the earliest.

Anyone think this is a pretty good deal?

http://www.amazon.com/Galaxy-GeForce-Express-Graphics-67NPH6DV6KXZ/dp/B007ZSYC72/ref=sr_1_3?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1360728619&sr=1-3&keywords=67NPH6DV5ZVX

I was going to go for a 7950 and wait for the new stuff to some out but this looks to be a pretty good price.
