Hey Tom's
So my old HD5870 is toast, so here I am. I would like to know what the cheapest GPU is that can play games on high/max graphics.
I have always had an AMD gpu in the past, but I am open to nvidia as well.

Power and CPU are not an issue in my build, and the PCI interface is 3.0

Thx in advance
Games that I play:
World of Tanks
war Thunder
TF2 + other steam source engine games
BF3
League of Legends
Minecraft

Hm, high/max graphics is the realm of the 7870GHz/7950. Or on the nvidia side of things, the 660ti or 670.
At least for bf3. For other games, you could probably get by with a 7850 or 650ti boost.

Thx so far, but just a few more questions
1. My resolution is 1920 by 1080. Will I be in need of 1 or 2 GB of video RAM for high/max graphics?
2. my old 5870 had no problems playing the games I play at high/max graphics, so I guess I am looking for a graphics card that is only slightly better than that card. Would the HD7850 or nvidia 650 Ti Boost be the card(s) I need?
3. I am aware that some games run better on certain platforms than others. Which runs better on, say, World of Tanks?
4. Are there any bundled games/discounts with any of these cards that I should take into consideration (I am always up for free games...)

The 7850 comes with 3 free games. I own one, and it performs beautifully. I don't know how world of tanks runs on the different platforms. I would go with 2gb, to be safe in the future. This is the card I own, very cheap, quiet, fast, and overclocks well:
