    Graphics Card

    Hello im trying to buy a new Graphics Card

    Budget: $0-$350
    Current: Nividia GeoForce GTX 285
    info: must be nvidia and have directx11

    Waiting between worlds that divide through a choice undefined
    A break in the line where all paths intertwine
    And no roads lead or progress behind
    And all signs read: "Know The Way. Decide"

    Worth it though I'm willing to spend $500+ to get one when i get mine built, because it lightens the work of your processor.

    Yeah, the good ones like Nvidia GTX 570 are awesome. I think it's got pixel shader 4? Or something, which is great. Also it's going to be good for a while, now. So you might as well buy it.
    Not sure how much it costs though.

    Don't buy a high end GPU in a shitty case with a crappy CPU. High end GPUs produce a lot more heat. Small, poorly circulated cases would get fried. 2nd, your CPU still handles the game engine. So while a high end GPU will take the graphics load off your CPU and lets it handle the engine, if it can't do that well, then you have wasted a lot of money.

    GTX 570 is the highest card in your budget
    if you want to go over your budget by ~$20-30, then you could get a GTX580
