  • Need advice on a new graphics card.

    Current specs:

    Intel Core i5-3570K Ivy Bridge 3.4GHz (3.8GHz Turbo) LGA 1155 77W Quad-Core (overclocked to 4.3)

    GIGABYTE GA-Z77-D3H LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

    CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 MHz

    Monitor: 1600x900 resolution LG Flatron 20" (plan on buying a new monitor in the near future)

    ATI Radeon HD 5770 graphics card

    No name 550W PSU (will be upgrading that too when I buy a new graphics card)

    I'd like to be able to play upcoming games such as the DayZ Standalone, Titanfall and Elder Scrolls Online maxed or somewhat close to it. Any tips on what I would need are appreciated. Budget for the card alone is around $350-$400 for a decent card that will last me awhile.

    GTX 770 or 670
    Radeon R9 280x

      Thank you very much. Here in Osaka the 280x is anywhere from $50-100 USD cheaper than the 770's so I'll be going that direction so 280x it is. Cheers.

        280x is OK - you got a low res monitor. A GTX 760 would be OK too. But get a better monitor (1080).
