    Graphic card is really outdated, finally have money to buy a new card and my friends mentioned the new 8000 series getting released so maybe I should wait a bit before I buy one.

    Thanks from advance

    I read it and this is what I understand:

    The 8000 series gets released as the old 7000 series but...different?

    I don't really know anything about graphic cards so I am not entirely sure.

    your best option is to buy a high 7000 series or wait for the 8000 series, whats your budget?

    Well whats your current card and power supply? And what resolution do you play at?

    I would gun for this little guy though EVGA 02G-P4-3651-KR GeForce GTX 650 Ti 2GB 128-bit...

    Its like 20% faster then the HD7770s, and only $10 over the budget.

    The place that sells the equipment I need does not have it, any other amd/ati/nvidia card that is good for the price? Or should I just wait for 8000?

    Gigabyte NVIDIA GeForce GTX650 Ti 2GB GDDR5 seems cool, so better to buy it rather then waiting for 8000?

    I don't think he needs that much GPU with a C2D cpu and 4GB ram. The 650 is the sweet spot.
    Shippou, MxPhenom 216 and grunt_408 say thanks.

    OP if you are intending to stick with the C2D for a while yet, then going with the 650 would be the best bet.
    If you pan to upgrade to new model intel CPU sometime this year then then looking at a more powerful graphics card now will be a better option.

    Staying with the processor for a while, so because of the processor the 8000 series won't be any better? I heard it's going to cost the same as the 7000 cards atm

    your CPU will probably bottleneck anything thats faster then a 650/660ti. Just get that Gigabyte 650ti 2GB card and that shoudl be good.
