Okay so I'm going to build my own PC..
As soon as I can decide what graphics card to go with that will give me amazing performance at a good price.

For example I just stumbled upon the GTX 480 and it's amazing benchmarks but it's pretty expensive.

What's the best card for the 100-300 price range?

The GTX 460?
470?
560?


tl;dr What is the best value card in the 100-300 price range?

the 6950 or the gtx 560 ti is a sweet deal both around 280$ ish, the 470 overheats too much so i wouldnt recommand it ;)

for 20 bucks more you get my choice, an insanely factory OCed 560 (1ghz core) with a awesome cooler that is on par with GTX 570 and 6970. and the chip is cherry picked so it would probably get a higher max OC than a reference card.
