Hey all I have a question that has probably never been asked here before. :)  :)  :)  :)  :)  :) 
I just finished buying all the components for my new build but I'm not sure which graphics card to buy. This is a budget gaming build so I'm looking for something with the best performance. I have around 200 left to spend but I really want to spend around 150 to 175 for something with a rebate or something. I will probably be buying from newegg sometime today or tomorrow. Here is my current build.


AMD Athlon II X3 445 Rana
ASRock M3A770DE AM3 AMD 770 ATX AMD Motherboard
Antec EarthWatts EA-500D Green 500W ATX12V v2.3 / EPS12V 80 PLUS BRONZE
COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 Plus
CORSAIR XMS3 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333
COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 Plus


Should I go with the 6850 like this one for 165 after rebate? Or I found some on ebay for 140.

The 6850 is a better card:

Check for yourself ;) 


E-bay is cheap deal, but New is is much more trusted.

I was leaning towards the HIS 6850 and for 140 on ebay I think I'm sold. Seller has great feedback and the cards are new. Now how they are being sold at 140 I have no idea. :??:  :??:

They get their items straight from NewEgg. I bought 2 GTX 460 SE's and an AMD Phenom II X4 960 from that same seller and I got boxes that were labeled NewEgg with NewEgg reciepts.

Oh I see. They must buy in large quantities to sell for that price on ebay. After ebay slaps you with their pimp hand with fees and shipping theres not much left. I bought the card so hopefully I'll have everything here by the weekend.
