    Smile Help Choosing a GPU

    I am not that into gaming but I am a huge Dragon age series Fan. Just bought the Game but having lag and flickering issues as I dont really have any GPU atm. So help me choose one please. My current spec is

    Core i5 3.2
    8 GB DDR3
    gigabyte 85 Motherboard
    Gigabyte Hercules x480 PSU

    I see in the games spec they recommend Geforce GTX 660. Will this one work with my current spec? I looked for this in sylhet its not available here. Can anyone please tell me how much will this one cost? also if there is anything else which might be better than this and will be good to go with my current spec feel free to suggest and please mention the price as well.

    Thanks a lot.

    Get a R9 270 @16k. However I would say it would be better if you mentioned budget.

    In bdstall and in ryan computers website I see there are many r9 270 with different price and brand. Which one are you suggesting?

    - - - Updated - - -

    I see this ones specification and it say it needs 500W. then surely my PSU cant handle it? Or Am I missing something?

    One more stupid rhymes like this, and I'll start giving out infractions. 1 or 2 offtopics is okay, making it more than so is not.

    When people say no offense, they start off with a pun and then usually say it to avoid further consequences.
