If you just want to play a handful of games that aren't the most demanding out there, a mid range card will do you fine.

Hi Kelly,
I'm not sure of what games yet - just want a card that is quality and will run cool and efficient.
What AMD card do you recommend?

Budget would help, A 660 or above would include post number 3 which is a very good card

For $300 you can get an AMD Radeon HD 7950, or an Nvidia GTX 660Ti..........+/- a few bucks. The HD7950 probably benchmarks a little better, but I think Nvidia's drivers and support are better. You can look at some performance reviews and decide which one is the right one for you.

Looked at the Nvidia, but the second review said it did not work with Asus p8z77-v (which is mine)

Fault of card or user's system?

Either user error or bad card. There is no reason a current video card shouldn't work with a current motherboard/chipset.

Okay, thanks.

All these suggestions are great (although so many choices are giving me a major headache. LOL

Thanks again to all who took the time to respond.

What would be the advantages of the new one , and any idea on price?

Price will be similar. The 760's I think will have better memory bandwidth and all the little bells and whistles the new line of cards have. If they are going to be out in a few weeks, I'd wait as well.
