Thanks for recommending newegg.com everyone! It so far saved about $20 or so without adding sales tax. Now for the video cards, I looked into the 570 and 7870. Those prices I can't do.

What would be a decent video card that could run most games at a fair level for at most $150?

I'm thinking a 7850 would be right about $150. It looks like Newegg has them for $160 after a mail-in-rebate, and they don't always have the best price. You might be able to get one for sale somewhere else. If not, maybe a GTX 650.

$150 for a gtx570

I'd also veto a 650, you can get a 470 for $115 which while older is still much better
http://www.geeks.com/details.asp?Inv...GTX-M2D12-PB-R

If you could squeeze $10 you could get a 7850

lol sorry missed that, but mines got free shipping so if he does the rebate he saves $10 I'd prefer the xfx card personally though

I would have to second this recomendation if your budget of $150 still stands. The extra money is well spent.

Pretty big increases across the board and a good handful of them are important increase (IE borderline 20-30fps to a solid 40-50fps)

Wolf, how far away are you from getting a 660 or 7850?

Thanks for the additional recommendations. That $115 is definitely something to look at.

What about this 7850? About it's a bit cheaper than the one you recommended.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814161426

Akward Silence, what do you mean by how close? Do you mean money?

Thats $589 after rebates and coupon codes(plus a little more, the hd coupon is vague), that leaves you $160 to get one of the graphics cards I mentioned earlier

You could probably get rid of that tic. He's using the stock cooler, so the stuff that's already applied is sufficient.

Got my new SSD and backup HDD today. I've been almost 2 years with no backup. I pushed my luck too hard to my tastes.
