Kinda stuck on which video card to get.
gtx460 $240
ati 5850 $250
ati 6870 $240
i can get a 5870 for $240-$250
gtx 470 for $250ish

which one would be the best at those prices. i play mmorpg, rts and a few fps.

the 6870 is cheaper and slightly better than the 5850. Thats one down
gtx uses up a lot of power for what you get, so if you dont have a decent psu, take that out
gtx 460 should be way lower then 240. did you try newegg.com? im sure you can find a great deal on a gtx 460 + rebate
5870 will be upgraded to the 6970 next month, if thats what you want to get, id wait
if you got a x58 board, you can crossfire two 6850s, they crossfire really well, are quiet, and oc very good

my 2 cents

i have a 700W psu ocz modxstream pro
im using the i7 870 so the 1156.
im thinking the 5870 would the best offer and if i wait for the 6970 or 6950 its gonna be alot more expensive about $300ish i really dont wanna spend more than $250. its in my budget range.
dont really like to crossfire..
