650ti or 660 should be more than enough

660 or 750 Ti? Both are very good even in 1080p

The 660 is better, and yea it should be fine for most games at 720p; it's an incredibly easy resolution to run.

You can get a 7950 and it would max out every game at 720p 60fps + 

 

Or you can get a 390 (x) and max out 4x 720p  :P

A friend of mine have 650 Ti and he can't even max GTA5@800x600 for that fluid 60fps. 

 

660 will fare much better but at such low resolution your CPU will bottleneck the game most of the time.

Oh right, a specific budget would be helpful, because to some a 950 would be seen as cheap.

How cheap?

maybe around 100 dollars... But keep in mind I am going for a used gpu
