Looking a good graphics card to be able to run modern games smoothly such as Dayz etc...

Here are my PC specs:

AMD Athlon II X4 750k CPU
Gigabyte F2A55M-DS2
8GB RAM
Corsair CXM 430W

My budget would be around £150 or $250.

    I love my GTX 780 it does every thing I want. If I had more money I would have gotten a GTX 780ti. Can't really answer our question without a budget. These are $500 plus cards though.

    For the budget you provided I might look at getting a used ATI R9 270.

    http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_odkw=ATI+R9270&_from=R40%7CR40%7CR40&_osacat=0&_from=R40&_trksid=p2045573.m570.l1313.TR1.TRC0.A0.H0.XATI+R9+270&_nkw=ATI+R9+270&_sacat=0

    I have a Devil R9 270x and it is darn good for its age.
  2. The problem is we don't want the graphics card to be bottlenecked by the CPU. S

    This thread discusses and the CPU is similar to yours.

  3. GTX 970/980 will be out in days .... "Hold your horses". If not familiar with that expression .... wait a few more days - The 19Th of this month is the rumored date.

    Edit. Joe is correct. But getting a better card than your cpu can handle means when if you get a better cpu you won't have to upgrade the GPU... again.

    Yes but I doubt they are going to be in his price range. One can hope though.
  5. ^ the new cards are supposed to be less expensive - may mean new prices on all will result.
