I have the hd7850 1gb. The hd7850 2gb is the min. Card. Or gtx660.

The reccomend card is the gtx970 or r9 290.

I have a r9 290 that's messed up, if you put it in an oven it might come back to life. It boots and stuff, just have to downclock the memory to keep from getting weird scanlines.

It made me many bitcoins, then it didn't. If you are up for it, you can have it for shipping cost.

I have a 6970 on my desk. Fan is stuck on 100%. Not sure if the temp. sensor is bad or the PWM control is broken. Probably not any better than your 7850 though.
