  1. Ok,I am building a PC and I would like to buy EVGA GTX 650 Superclocked 2GB GDDR5.
    I got one 120 mm fan and I can afford myself one more(both 1200 rpm)
    Will that cut it?

    You don't need to if you don't want to.

    A GTX 650 is such a low power card it will not exhaust much heat, and therefore it would not require an extra fan to provide ventilation. I would put that money saved on the fan to maybe a 650Ti rather than a 650 if you havent already bought it.

    Well I just watched one video and it seems that MSI R7 260X is a decent card.
    What do you think?

    What is your price range?

    For a GPU it is up to 175$.

    R7 265x is a better card. In fact the best card in that price range.
    If you look around and can find a GTX 750Ti for cheaper that'd be even better.

    Yeah, either a R7 265 or a GTX 750Ti would be a good choice.
