Upgrading from GTS 250 1GB to HD6850

Hello ladies and gentlemen,

I've been following one particular video game for quite some time now called "Battlefield 3", and I'm quite certain that my GTS 250 will not be sufficient to give me decent frame rates in BF3. It also will not be able to run DX11.

Now I can't seem to find any good benchmarks comparing these two cards. It is probably because they are at least a generation apart, but I was wondering if anyone knows where I can find such benchmarks.

Now I am very certain that I will not be buying this video card until October so factor that in as well.

I guess I'm asking, is it worth the 150$ to upgrade to an HD6850 from a GTS 250?

These are my system specs
Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
AMD Phenom x4 955 Black edition,
8GB DDR3-1333
1280x1024 monitor

I very likely will not be getting a new monitor.

I have a tentative budget of 150$, but I just want the most power for the money.
