Upgrading GPU, need suggestions

Right now I'm running at 1080p and have an xfx radeon hd 4870 512mb (so most games run like poo at 1080p). I'm looking to upgrade it but I figured I ask some people with more knowledge on what to get. I'm looking for the best possible GPU for under 250 dollars.

Currently looking at the Sapphire Radeon HD 6870 or a GTX 470 (or maybe a 460?). Any better cards out there for the price that I'm missing?

  1. You can ge more than a 6870 ATI-wise for $250... If you look hard enough, you could find a Radeon 5870 (more powerful than a 6870, long story), for about that much. Nvidia-wise, a 470 seems like a pretty good option, but if you wanted to spend a little less, you could get a GTX 460 1GB for $170ish and then OC it.

    I'd hurry up and grab the HD5870 linked below. At only $229 (AR), it's the best possible performance you're going to get. The $30-off offer ends the 31'st.

    EDIT: I failed. I've been looking at 460's for so long tonight I got it mixed up. :??:
  4. Awesome just ordered it. Now I can finally use my computer the way it was meant to be used. The 4870 w/ 512mb wasnt cutting it at a 1080p. This should do the job. Heard it can run Crysis at max with AA. YESSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
