Graphics Card Suggestions

Hi Everybody,

So, I recently upgraded most of my computer, thinking my old graphics card would be alright (I'm running a VisionTek Radeon HD 5670), and it is for the most part; but having Skyrim often dip into the low 20s and even 10s on fps is getting annoying. I'm wondering if you guys have a suggestion as to which graphics card I should upgrade to. I'd like to stay under $200, although I could be persuaded to go up to $250 if it's worth the extra cost. I mostly want to run stuff like Skyrim, SWTOR, and Starcraft II.

you can spend as little as $150 and get a 6850 and play all that at 1080p on high or ultra. spend $30 more and you can get a 6870 which would probably give you more than enough. the 560 ti is good but might be not worth the extra money if thats all you are going to play.
