Looking for a graphics card

by natem1095 / December 4, 2012 6:00 AM PST

I am in the process of purchasing pc components for a budget pc gaming build. I'm in need of a graphics card that is inexpensive but will get the job done I.e. play WoW, planetside, guild wars, on medium to high setting with a 30-40 fps. I just want something to get the job done for a while until I can upgrade

Here's my motherboard
--ASUS M5A88-V EVO AM3+ AMD 880G SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131733

Ps- If someone can enlighten me on how NOT to bottleneck my pc. That would be great

No idea what it is.

I'd look at a Hd 7770......nice middle of the pack unit.

If you have a 1000 bucks to spend for a gpu......post back.
I'll see if I can find something with a little more muscle.
