- I already have a Case/PSU
GT (no "X") series are more media playback cards than gaming cards, pick of the $100 gaming gpus would prolly be the sapphire r7 260x
You can get better (lower latency) ram for the same price & no mir

I live in Canada so and don't drive so Micro Center is not an option for me. Ive also been going back and forth between Nvidia and Radeon GPUs. It will most likely end up being which ever is the cheapest at time of purpose.
Oh right... good job you can set the location to Canada (drop down in the top right corner of the build page) & get local prices then... :D
...Am I being a **** if I say "you coulda mentioned that"? :D
Broadly speaking amd will give better bang for your $$ gaming performance, but nvidia are usually quieter & more power efficient.
edit. here's some listed ram - http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/part/a-data-memory-ax3u1600w4g9dmv
and you can get a r7 265 for the same price if that's still in budget - http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/part/club-3d-video-card-cgaxr72656
Sorry didnt think to mention Canada:P, BUT I do plan on upgrading once i get more $$ I just wanna get something built to game on.
Right on, r7 265 is kinda getting up there I believe (not a pc gamer) so hopefully that'll keep you going for a little while.
