So my video card got held up which got me thinking for a bit. Since my video card was held up I was going thru bookmarks deleting links since everything else is already purchased. I ended up coming across a video card I was considering that was less than the one I actually ordered. So my question is, for someone that doesn't really PC game at all and when I do it won't be Crysis 3, is the card I ordered worth it? Or should I just go with my first choice? I might do some video editing (ripping blurays to 4gb MP4s) and that's really it. Which would you all go with? Don't wanna go overkill for something I'd never use.

The card I ordered...

The card I chose first...

And no I don't care about the free games.


Edit: I have added security on my card and my girlfriend who ordered the parts with my card entered the wrong security password and it canceled the entire order, I just got the email. It messed up the video card and SSD order. <~Just FYI

If you don't play game the 7850 might be overkill.

What is your cpu ? The igp of your cpu might actually be enough.

The one you bought has one of the best price-to-performance ratios of all GPUs available, so I think you made a good choice.

And it looks like the 7850 gets over twice the performance of the 7750, so you're quite a bit more future-proofed with the 7850.

No I really don't I was converted to a console gamer. My CPU is a FX 8150

Well the 8150 doesn't have any igp i think so it's not an option.

If you have enough money for the 7850 it's not a bad choice even if you don't really play games. It's a great card to have just in case. The problem with the 7750 is it's sort of expensive for what it is. Yes you save 100$ but you get a card that cannot play any game for the most part. A 7770 might be a good in between option.
