Default Need Help With A Graphics Card!

I am in need of a graphics card that would run the following games at a 60 FPS / 50 FPS

World of Warcraft on 25 man Raiding
Starcraft II 1v1
BattleField 3

Don't wanna pay for a 300$ card so any suggestions?

Moved to Video card section.

What resolution do you play at and do you want to turn up all the eye candy?

If so, 660TI, or 650 Boost (on a budget).

650Ti boost, 660 Ti, or a Radeon 7850/7870 all are great choices.

Agree. Missed the gtx 660 though... Non Ti. If you want costs lower you could also drop down to a hd 7790 or gtx 650ti (not boost), but you may have to turn graphics settings down. If its in the budget I would go to one of the higher performing gpu.

I would say one of the above would work fine if you plan to buy new but if you have a few people you trust within your local area, or you want to buy from someone on HWC (you can probably do better getting a used card)!

Without even posting what the rest of your system is we can't even give you a guess. I say go for a geforce 7800 gt

I play WoW and BF 3 on ultra settings on my 7870, although 40 man world bosses sometimes slow down to ~ 30 fps
