Am I wrong in thinking that any video card will beat onboard graphics? What graphics do you have on board?

I feel like the iris pro integrated graphics and perhaps the hd5000 outperform some ultra low end graphics cards but for the most part a dedicated card is better than integrated graphics. Just let us know what the integrated graphics chip is and we'll let you know.

Well If I think I understand this question right do you want a new graphics card for gaming or do you just want a card ?

If so I think the best one at the moment for price is the evga 650ti boost

As said i want the graphics card to read either the same or higher on both gaming and desktop in WEI. It currently rates both at 6.7

yeah the 750 is pretty good. If you could stretch your budget a bit more to 150 you can get the r7 265, a true beast in the 100-200 range.

Both cards look nice. But from my motherboard specs it sounds like only fm2+ processors support pcie 3.0 i just rememberd this. Will the board automatically downgrade it to 2.1?
