Gpu help!



Okay so im doing a budget build for one of my friends. And im stuck with 2 diffrent GPU cards. I want to say that the gtx 640 is better cause its 2gb, but i dont know. So the GPU's that i have planned for him is the GTX640 2gb 128bit and the GTX 650 1gb 128 bit..... He wants to run Games like skyrim and BF3 on 1920x1080 at max settings or high settings. He also was to do a little bit of video editing and picture editing. And if your wondering the CPU that im getting for him his the AMD phenom II x4 965 black edition deneb 3.4ghz With 8gigs of 1600 ram.


here are the links to them

GTX 650

GTX 640


At 1920x1080p, those cards are still going to be pretty weak. A better option would be the 7770, for an equal price or just a little more. For $20 more, I would recommend this:

Neither the 640 or 650 are going to be good for renderring, but the 7770 at least has more stream processors (practically CUDA cores.)

Yeah... if he wants to max Battlefield 3, he'll need at least a 300 dollar video card, like a 670 or 7950. You can't get performance like that without paying for it.

really dude.... i dont think anyone needs a $300 gpu to run BF3 on max settings. im more than sure the $144 gpu that the guy on top recomend would work just fine at max settings 

thanks man! i will try to talk him into putting and extra $30 to his build so he could get this gpu

Would this be a better opition?
