Looking for a graphics card to replace my 275 for less than $250.

Right now I have a gtx 275 superclocked edition and it is just not cutting it. Every time I play oblivion the game crashes even with the graphics turned all the way down. I've played portal, portal 2, Fallout New Vegas, call of duty WaW, and WoW all at max resolution and with most eye candy on and never have had a problem. I think it's my graphics card that is causing oblivion to not run but idk for sure. Anyways I would like to replace my 275 anyways because it is getting outdated. My limit is 250 and I'm really just looking for something to hold me over till I build a new system at the end of this year or beginning of 2012 (depending on what gets released and when).

I've been looking at the zotac amp! gtx 560 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814500210&nm_mc=EMC-IGNEFL081811&cm_mmc=EMC-IGNEFL081811-_-EMC-081811-Index-_-DesktopGraphicsVideoCards-_-14500210-L06C

But then I noticed that this 6950 was only 40 bucks more http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814125385
I would like something for 200 but I am willing to go up to 250 if it is a significant difference in features, brand, performance, or design. I would really like a free game to be included because I just sold my xbox with the intent on playing more PC games instead and I really don't have many PC games. I lost my CoD game key :'(

Thank you for you time, I really appreciate it!

  1. The 560 is equivalent to a 6870, whereas the 560ti is stronger than the 6950 and will overclock better. You could also get an already factory overclocked card that will beat the 6950 for $40 more. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814500196

    Edit: Btw your offer expired.

    Also, since a 6870 and the 560 are relatively equal, you could save some money by going for the 6870 which is around $25
  2. I fixed the link. I would like a card with some sort of aftermarket heat sink on it with a couple of fans preferably so that it is quieter. Which is what caught my attention on the 6950. What do you think of that 6950?
    Here are a few more I found. I would like a factory overclocked card cause I'm still hesitant about overclocking.
