Okay that helps. If your not in the US you will need to find local pricing.

Your 650 watt power supply will handle most anything you want to run.

Since the 600 series Nvidias have come on the market the Nvidia 560, 570, 580 pricing has dropped considerably.
EVGA has been excellent in performance and reliability with many forum members.
EVGA has an excellent reputation for service if you do have a problem.

I am using ASUS with no problems.

So I would be looking for a Nvidia 560, 570 or 580.
If you prefer ATI/AMD I have no ideas.

I hope that helps.

If I had to choose it would be MSI brand.

That is an educated response to MSI overall. Palit I can't say good or bad.

Without more info and I only had those two choices it would be MSI.

Radeon is widely used but I have no experience with them good or bad.
I'm not going to bad mouth Radeon.
I have always found Nvidias meet my needs and price when I look for a new video card.

What is that US approximately? Remember you probably have VAT. We don't.

Will post a USD price if I can find one. Back in a few minutes.

Walmart US has the 560 TI. $222.99 USD

Newegg is 232.99 USD

Amazon is 214.99 USD
http://www.amazon.com/ENGTX560-TI-DC...ds=asus+560+ti

Maybe that will help.

nice i found it in my country for 225 euros.
Thats the card right ? nVidia GeForce GTX 560 Ti DirectCU II 1GB DDR5 PCI-E Dual DVI HDMI (Asus) (ENGTX560 Ti DCII/2DI/1GD5).

Edit:i checked around the internet and a lot ppl say that 560ti isnt really that much better than 560,so whats your opinion? because i could spend those 50 more euros for 2 ram sticks.Also a friend referred me to this one as well ATI Radeon HD7850 DirectCU 1GB DDR5 PCI-E Dual DVI HDMI DP (Asus)
Edit2:I am also thinking going for 7870 twin froz by msi,but will my hardware bottleneck the card?

I recommend the brand new Nvidia GTX 660 Ti. It should be within your price range, it's got kepler architecture (brand new design, low power usage etc), runs most games very well on high, and it's a decent price (Under $320 as i recall).

Sweetsaintg, regarding the bottleneck, 2.85 should be fine for a 7870, but what model of processor do you have? You can find it by going to: My Computer > System Properties > System. It should be under your system rating.
