Gtx 750 1gb vs r7 260x 1gb vs hd. 6850 1 gb

I finished my pc about a month and a half ago and here are my specs.

Fx4300 w/ stock cooler
Cx430
2tb wd green
Cx430 (32amls on 12v rail)
Ga78lmt-usb3
Rosewill Ranger m
4gb ddr3 1333

My friend had given me his defective 550ti (bsod, non fixable, tried literally everything) and it is now completely dead. I am looking to upgrade my gpu and have to find a gpu off of amazon for fairly cheap. I am 13 btw, and my b-day is coming up in June, and my parents are okay with getting somewhat early birthday presents. The 6850 used on amazon from a reputable seller is 84$, 750 new is 120, and r7 260x is 120. Which one should I go for? I have 150$ personal money that my parents don't like me spending (spend nearly 350$ on the rest, life savings lol) but I think I could buy it if I really convinced them, which I haven't yet. Which card should I go for. Game at 1680x1050 and have dual monitors, and play bf3/4, bioshock inf, jc2, gta 4, left for dead, counter strike, cod, etc... Which one sounds the best, I am using the inboard amd 760 g, and can hardly minimize a window, skyrim at 640x480 is with low settings at 20fps is unplayable, so I haven't touched these games since the 550ti died a few weeks back. Pls help.

    I would go with either the GTX750 or the 260X, really nothing between them http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/ASUS/GTX_750_OC/25.html

    Hi! Sorry for the late response. I can wait till closer to June and go for something a little bit better like a 2gb r7 260x. Would this be worth it? Thanks.
  3. Yes it would maybe look at GTX750Ti or R7 265 then and see the prices.

    Yeah, maybe i'll look at those. How about the 6850? Is it too old now?
  5. It is getting old but is less powerful than the other two.
