    I'm in the middle of heavily upgrading my computer, and right now I have a crappy hd 6450, so obviously I should get a new one, but because of rules from silly parents who don't understand computers very well, I can't buy one until my birthday in July.

    My build after all my parts are in:


    COOLER MASTER Extreme 2 525W RS-525-PCAR Power Supply

    Intel DG43RK Classic Series LGA 775 Desktop Motherboard

    ZALMAN CNPS5X Performa CPU Cooler

    Intel Core 2 Duo E6750 2.66 GHz Dual-Core

    8gb DDR3 Cruical RAM
    160gb HDD
    500gb Momentus HDD
    120gb HDD
    Zalman Z9 Plus Case
    (Not sure what's wrong with the formatting)

    Your thread won't fall off the first page for maybe a day or so here, no need to bump so soon.

    Depending on your budget, something like a HD 7850 or 7770.

    Yeah, as Originality said above, it all depends on your budget. You won't get much help without some sort of budget (Even if it's only a rough budget).

    Make sure you don't get too awesome of a card, you CPU is a potential bottleneck.

    I was thinking, the hd 8000 series will most likely be released by then and I could buy the 7000 cards for cheaper.
    My budget is about $110 CAD

    u could also get the one that gifi has as it will run modern games except crysis 3 at great settings.

    depends on your budget and what you want to get when playing games ie. speed range- do u want it playable or exceeding fps

    Look on ebay, I just got a 6870 for $110 and a 6950 for $125. A 6870 is better than a 7750

    I'm confused, are you currently running LGA775 setup or do you plan to buy LGA775 motherboard?

    With $110 CAD, go used for GPU like GTX 460 (1 GB 256-bit) or HD6850.

    I already had a good enough processor and just bought a better board because the pc I already have is a BTX.
    EDIT: I'd buy it but I won't be able to until june or july.

    AMD is releasing more 7000 series cards soon, most likely lower end stuff, but that might bring some prices down.

    I just looked on ebay, and the lowest price for any of them is about $140. :(

    Keep checking. I check ebay many times a day, good deals are picked up quickly. Most 6950s go for like 160, I struck gold with mine.
