Hi Rusty,

I believe that card Brock has in his son's computer and works fairly well for him. I'd stick with it.

Me and my son both have 760 GTX 4gb cards. That card should be good though. I used to run ARMA 3 using a AMD 9650 without any problems and an Intel 3.0Ghz Duo core processor.

ok cool i found a much cheaper version here that's only like 100 bux and it's the 750 GTX SC.

here is the link to it for you guys to see what i was looking at.
thinking about getting this one instead since i have heard good things about it.

The difference I see is that it only has 1gb of ram instead of 2gb like the other one you are looking at. That might make a big difference but I'm not positive.
