Windows 7: Need help picking out a new graphics card

Thanks for the reply but I dont have any TigerDirect stores in Canada, only Target is coming into my city this year or so. BestBuy and FutureShop is the only two biggest electronic stores in my city.

All this GPU talk has me ordering a new one for myself and using a X-Mas gift card that was laying around for TigerDirect. It's XFX 7870 with 110.00 instant savings and a 20.00 usd MIR, with my gift card and (2) 9.00 TigerDirect AMEX MIR card it came to $190.00 delivered. So I'm waiting for it to ship and then install. Jumping from from crossfired 5770's then to a 6870 and now to a 7870. I'll be placing the 6870 in another build coming together via upgrades and then sell or give away to someone lucky.
XFX FX-787A-CDFC Radeon HD 7870 Double D Video Card - 2048MB, GDDR5, PCI-Express 3.0 (x16), 2x DVI, 2x Mini DisplayPort, 1x HDMI, DirectX 11, Dual-Slot, CrossFireX, Eyefinity at TigerDirect.com

It'd work. Sniffing around the Web, I see people happily running a 6850 with an Athlon II X4 635.

One possible worry: I'm not sure about that card, but I see that a similar model is 238mm (9.37") long. Will that fit in your case? (I expect so, but it'd be worth checking.)
My computer case is 180 (W) x 401.8 (D) x 379 (H) mm (7.08 x 15.81 x 14.92 inches)
but I have 3 slot space left in my computer beside the PCI-E
If you want to be sure, you'll need to open the case. (I don't expect a problem.)

8800 GTX? A high-end card, from 2006. Are you serious?

So I have ordered the Gigabyte 7750, that I have mentioned at the start from Bestbuy, so now that I might get the ASUS Nvidea 650 Ti card, I might as well return it.

Flip a coin and if you sign then go with the other, if not then stick and don't look back. In some cases like my choice I go with the best warranty, but this is why I went with BFG and they went BK and took my lifetime warranty with it ! lol.
