Looking to upgrade my video card. Currently im using the on board video of the Mobo (ASrock extreme 3 890) It will handle most of what i need but have recently purchased a flight sim (Phoenix 4.0) and it lags it quite a bit.

I dont game mutch and would like a card that is decent but doesn't have to be top of the line. Ive been looking into the 7750,7770,7850,7870 not sure what one would fit my needs the best without being total overkill. The computer has a Amd Phenom x4 965 and I did add a solid state drive a while back. The card I like the best so far is http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814121559

My budget is $150.00

Looks like a 7770 will run that fine.

Just posted the link above as I remembered seeing it this morning. $70 for a 7770 is happy, assuming the rebates come through.

3770K @4.5, Corsair H100, GTX780, 16gig Samsung, Obsidian 700 (yes there is a 700)

6970 and 6870 are EOA and the 7850 and 7870 are not priced at $150 which is the maximum budget.
