    Exclamation FIRST BUILD!!!! Need help choosing GPU for mobo.

    as you can clearly see my "system" is not quite complete. The parts listed are the parts that I have already ordered. This is my first build and I am completely lost. I am fairly positive there are no incompatibilities with the parts listed, yet I simply cannot figure out which GPU I should purchase. Im willing to spend around $450 American and am at a loss as to which would be my best choice. eventually I will crossfire or SLI but for now i just need something to start maxing out graphics on newer games. Anyone has any ideas please share them. Thank you all and Happy St. Patricks Day!!!!

    My wife and I play wow, guild wars 2, and I myself play the newer things like the Tomb Raider. I would like the new Simcity, Crysis 3, Bioshock Infinite, etc etc... I steal her laptop to play what I can and hence is why I'm purchasing my own desktop. Those are the games that I play, I would like it to be future proof for a while as well please.

    After a lot of consideration on different cards and much research I've decided on this spec. I will be updating my info as follows. Intel Core i5-3570K, Gigabyte Radeon HD 7970, Azza Genesis 9000 (Black) - System Build - PCPartPicker

    Yea. Sorry there man. IMO recommending graphics cards is on the same page as someone recommending underwear.

    158 views here so far and no rec's kinda backs that philosophy up. :)
    #1 - Please, when seeking help, enter the make and model of ALL parts that your system is comprised of in your Signature, or at least the model #'s in your System Specs, then "Save' it.
    ____If you are overclocking, underclocking, or undervolting any parts, informing us of this and their values would prove beneficial in helping you.

    #2 - G.Skill RAM Configurator for your boardSamsung Memory for your boardLatest AMD Chipset Drivers/WindowsLatest AMD Graphics Drivers/WindowsLatest Intel Drivers

    #3 - Please use the eXtreme Outer Vision Power Supply Calculator found HERE to determine if it might be your PSU at issue.
    ____Consider your PSU to be the foundation from which all else is built upon. Anything built upon a weak foundation is poorly built.

    Don't forget most people here will not have your mother board, and have no experience with various cards with it.

    What a "best choice" is, tends to be a to general question, and if you don't like the result, who wants to be responsible for that.
