    I just got a new computer I'll show you guys the specs below, I am looking to buy a graphics card. I want to play battlefield 4 online with playable frame rates. I don't need a top of the line billion dollar gfx card. I could use some help in suggestion, also if I didn't have to get a new PSU that would be great as well.


    CPU: Intel Quad-Core i5-4670 Haswell 3.4GHz

    What price range? Are we looking $100-250ish or $250-400ish? And are you looking for all maxed everything or just be able to play it and get by? Sticking with a 430 Watt PSU will probably be pushing it with most graphics cards. You can get a 600 watt from Corsair for usually around $30-$40 when it goes on sale, which is about every week or two.

    Thats a decent card.

    The 650Ti BOOST version is same price, but gives about 25% better performance.

    THe BOOST version is same card, but where as the normal Ti version has a 128 bit VRAM interface, the Boost version has 192 bit.

    On your PSU you are limited to a 1 power lead gfx, which means that currently you are limited to a GTX660.
