Buying a new video card

#1 Posted by GenghisJohn (257 posts) -

Hey guys, I was looking at a new vid card with the upcoming release of Far Cry 3. I'm not really even sure of what I'm looking for so I was hoping someone could help me pick out a card. Right now I have

  • Radeon 6670
  • 12 gigs of ram
  • Core i7 @3.4 ghz

Any suggestions on upgrades would be much appreciated.

What is your budget?

GTX660, or 670 would be your best bets.

7970 DirectCU II.

Honestly, those two guys above me just stated some nice video cards~

But again, a budget of what you are looking for would be nice. May I suggest something absurd and get an EVGA GeForce GTX 690 4GB? X3

Of course, I am only playing around for the moment~

Thanks very much for the replies, sorry about not putting a budget. I suppose I have maybe $300 to spend on a card? Definitly under $300

I would suggest 660 ti or 670. I'm more for Nvidia because they have better driver support.
