Windows 7: PC Gamer, looking for best card deal, technicall help also needed

PC Gamer, looking for best card deal, technicall help also needed

SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 7750 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card

^^Is the card I want to buy^^


But I don't know about how it handles in the gaming world.


In my specs, my motherboard is a PCIE 2.0 but this card is a 3.0.



People say this works fine -- Does it slow down? Will it actually affect me -_-?


Second thing, with this card, is it better to have 1gb gddr5 or 2gb ddr3??? This makes a 30 dollar difference somehow (I want the best graphics and speed I dont care about the price unless its over $100)



My motherboard is micro atx, but Im 88% sure that it will fit, it does look a little bulky, but the only thing that is bulky goes below (where space is in mass). Will it fit?



The card totals $88.00 that's including the 3 dollar shipping (Not tax)


My budget is to get Shipp + tax + actuall product under 100 bucks.


Does this sound like a sweet deal for that card??


Im looking to play skyrim on high to max quality, along with (Especcial this) -- Arma II Dayz mod, people say they have like a Radeon HD 99999999 99999gb ddr9999 ($300 cards) and they lag. Will I be able to play this games on high settings (around ps3[hdmi] or equal/better)? it doesn't exactly have to be 1080p but I want to be able to have lots of quality and FRAMES as I play |large map| or |Short map intense|



Main game styles that I want to handle on high settings with at least 35+ frames:


Arma II w/ Dayz -- Battlefield 3(i know i will need better) -- and Skyrim



Also how does this card compare to my old card (xfx Nvidia Geforce 9600 GSO Directx 11 ??756mb?? ram ddr?) (Some specs I can find out if you need) but i can tell you it was not gddr for a fact.


I need some help because Im probably going to buy this within the week so do not delay!


Thanks in advance

If you are calling yourself a gamer, the 7750 won't cut it.
Now, 7850. That will do it.But that costs way over 100 dollars.

Basically, if you do want to game in high/ultra settings with respectable FPS, the 7750 will not cut it.
Also you have not listed what type of PSU you have. You might need to buy one as well for the 7750.

We also need to know the make and model of your Power Supply.

Also, just as Erick said above......the 7750 is what I would call an entry level video card. You want to shoot for the 7850 or above in my opinion.

Ok ok, geesh no need to throw a bag in my face, yes Im a gamer but not that hardcore! Bf3 on ultra bahahaha like my blood could afford that! Im a budget gamer, i played cod5 with high settings on a signle core 2g ram, 9600 gso for so many years, computer only cost me 300 max! then upgraded to dual core and then played skyrim on med graphics. Obv Im not going Ultra, I just want something that looks resondable, as if I were playing on an actual PC, not some garbage from acer. I didnt mention that i owned a ps3 that i actually dont play bf3 on pc and would rather use ps3 instead, but games like ARma II (Please refocus on that) I really want to get good frames and not look like im playing on cod black ops (Garbage graphics)

Does anyone think i can get near 35- 40 frames with this card on high or somwhat high (reduced range or maybe folliage/ground quality decrease)

In other news, my PSU its a decent Thermal take 450W (some bundle garbage) but it works really good for now, and i really cant afford to buy another psu.

Yes I fail at spelling, that I wrote with haste. Can you guys compare my old 9600 GSO to this HD 7750 1gb ddr3? How many times better is it? Is it like nintendo 64 and ps3? Or do you think it would be double the quality. I also have 8 gigs of ram incase I didn't mention.

It will be quite a bit better. It's hard to quantify how much better it will be.
