Good GPU to go with 2500k/p8p67 pro

I'm looking for a good video card to put it in my system i'm building. I'm gonna be running a i5 2500k and a asus p8p67 pro mobo.

I was leaning towards the XFX HD 6870

when i pair that with the i5 i get them both for a total of $435 with a combo

I was also looking at the XFX HD Radeon 6950

If i go that route it's $500 for GPU and the i5.

Is it worth the extra $75 for the upgrade in graphics card?

I don't plan on OCing and the extent of my gameplay is WoW, Black Ops, Starcraft 2, diablo 3 when it's out.

More about good 2500k p8p67
  1. i would rather suggest ASUS GTX 560 Ti Direct CU II
    better performance then HD 6950 in Dx10 games but lags a little behind in Dx11 gaming..
  2. That's actually the card I was just looking at after I read about half a dozen posts in here.

    now i'm trying to decide between the asus gtx 560
