Just a note, i know there is a stick here but I need to choose... The Details are below...

And on a side note, Sapphire or XFX??? The XFX Cards have DUAL fans which may be better for cooling. The thing is that, i'm buying the card in America and then i'm coming to Turkey where i work to build it, and if it doesn't work then how will i RMA it back to the USA? Which company has better support and RMA...

APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: One Month

USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Games, COD4,Cod5, TF2, <-- Those are easy games... Also i'll probably be playing some better more powerful games soon though maybe bf3 on medium settings is fine.

CURRENT GPU AND POWER SUPPLY: This is a new build, But im thinking of buying a Cooler Master 600W or a Corsair 650W MODULAR for both, the problem is that the corsair is $30 more on a budget, will the cm 600w run my rig..??

OTHER RELEVANT SYSTEM SPECS: Intel i5-2500k, MSI P67 Mobo, 8GB DDR3, Hardrives, DVD, NZXT M59, CM Hyper 212+

PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: Newegg and Amazon

PARTS PREFERENCES: I want the Radeon series, sapphire or XFX?

OVERCLOCKING: No, Probably not for my GPU and no Crossfire either

MONITOR RESOLUTION:1920x1080

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: good cooling is a plus

edit: My Budget is ~$160-180 AFTER Reabtes!

You forgot to mention your budget. Manufacturer does not matter. Just get a card with a better cooler. I will suggest MSI Twin Frozr series for it. They have a custom PCB design and the installed cooler is very effective.

As Emperus said, manufacturer does not matter... almost. 600W PSU will run your rig fine.
