    I have set aside money for a gtx 770 but it hit me that the only games I have played for the last two years have been older ones, the newest being Skyrim. Mostly just APB Reloaded these days. Would this be able to play games coming out with the new consoles upping what we will see released? I expect not maxed, but I am hoping for medium with 30 fps? If anyone could venture a guess for me it would be appreciated.

    I only now realized how much of a waste getting a 770 for me would be. Although if I decide to stream to twitch I wonder if this would be an issue, I do believe streaming is mostly CPU though and mine is fine there.

    Perhaps a 670 would be more appropriate.

    The 7850 will actually do really good. I have a 7770 myself, and a friend of mine has a 7850. We both have youtube channels with benchmarks for each card and a lot of people actually underestimate these cards and their power. Check out my latest bf4 benchmark on my channel, you'll be surprised: http://www.youtube.com/thatechgamer
    I've also tested out skyrim and apb reloaded. My friends channel is linked on my channel as well!

    You're right. You could just easily answer his question or you could shamelessly promote your youtube channel in MORE words than it would take just to give the answer.

    155-30=100? Someone's math is broken.

    A 670 will be fine playing new games in medium. In fact, I am playing battlefield 4 on a GTX 670 on medium setting and I'm not noticing any lag in 1080p. If you turn on max setting though, the fps drops down pretty bad. Benchmarks say that it's about 30fps, but I can see that my card is having a hard time rendering all the frames. Opt for a 670 or 7950, they should both be in the $200 mark for this holiday deals.

    Zeathy - If you are in the 670 or 7950 level of card I'd have you consider the possessor level you're using and what if any of a bottleneck that might entail with such cards?

    Wow I just randomly saw this today and I have to say, I was just trying to help out. I was helping out a random person over the internet and my friend, and someone gets mad for no reason. I answered his question AND gave him a place to look for proof of how the card performs. You could have easily said NOTHING instead of wasting space here hypocrite. He doesn't HAVE to check the YT channel out, but its just another way to look at the cards performance.
