So currently I have a Asus 6770 and I wanted to upgrade for better performance and 3D model/Animation.
cpu: AMD 8350
Mobo:Asus Sabretooth 990fx
I need a budget gpu. Don't want to spend more than $400 at max.
I play games like starcraft 2, Dota 2, Blade and Soul, Tera, Shogun 2, BF3, Tomb Raider, etc. I want to max out the graphics.
I use Maya and blenders for 3D stuff.
Go for a 7870 XT or 7950, these will not max out certain games, but are great cards for the money.
I back recon on this, depending where you are from you might be able to pick up a 7970 for under $400. So anything from a 7870 XT - 7970 depending on how much you want to throw down.
Here's a 7970 for $390
