I am going to upgrade my computer GFX Card, PSU and possibly add ram to it.

 

If anyone with experiance building computers could tell me if I am missing anything or recommend changes.

 

Here are my current computers specs: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01975707&tmp_task=prodinfoCategory&cc=us&dlc=en&lc=en&product=4120616#N190

Here is the GFX card I want to buy: Radeon HD 6850 (http://www.amazon.com/Sapphire-Radeon-PCI-E-Video-100315L/dp/B0047ZGIUK/ref=cm_cd_ql_qh_dp_t)

My 300W PSU will also need to be upgraded.

 

 

My main issue is that the Radeon HD 6850 has many manufactuers and I am unsure of which one is the best.

 

 

I am on a budget of $200

Most of the manufacturers for GPU's are nearly identical, it is just the cooling, warranty, and bundle that are different.  Though old, the 6850 is a decent card, If you are wanting something newer and a little more powerful, the EVGA 01G-P4-2751-KR GeForce GTX 750 would be good, but is slightly more expensive.  The next step up above that is the EVGA 02G-P4-3753-KR GeForce GTX 750 Ti but is significantly more expensive.  As for a 500W power supply, the EVGA 100-W1-500-KR 500W is a decent choice.  As for the RAM, I don't really think you need more as 8GB is a sort of "Sweet spot" for most users and 6GB is close enough.  In relation to Diablo 3, I don't believe there is a native 64-bit executable for it, so extra RAM may not make much of a difference gaming-wise.

So i compared the EVGA 02G-P4-3753-KR GeForce GTX 750 Ti to the Radeon HD 6850 and i am confused as to which gpu is more powerful, I am aware larger numbers does always mean better but here is the breakdown: Card Comparison

If someone could explain to me why the Geforve 750 would be a better overall choice, I would be happy

There are differences in architecture.  The 750 ti is new and current in terms of what Nvidia is producing, the 6850 is about two generations back, there has since been the Radeon 7000 and R7/R9.

 

Here is a relative performance chart inside a review for a 750 ti.  The Radeon 6850 is old and not on the lineup for that chart, however, when looking at a review from the same site for the Radeon 7850 containing the similar chart here, we can see that the 6850 hovers around a Radeon 7770 and Radeon 7790 with performance which is on the first chart for the 750 ti since it is newer.

 

The 750 ti is also more efficient in terms of power draw and runs cooler.
