I only play games like call of duty... im starting to notice my frames drop a bit but it still looks fine.
Also my processor is a amd athlon ii x4 645

I dont want to spend more than 150usd and the 6850 looks to be the best for that price range.

^^^

I would have to agree. Overall, the HD 6850 is slower than the HD 5850 (the next card up from the HD 5770). However, it does have a better DX11 engine so in DX11 games the HD 6850 should perform a little better than the HD 5850. But in DX9 and Dx10 games, the HD 6850 a little worse than the HD 5850.

The overall raw performance of the HD 6870 is better than the HD 5850 in all DX9, DX10, and DX11 games which makes a more ideal upgrade than the HD 6850.

2 x 5770 in Crossfire competed with HD5870 in performance so it would be better than HD6870 but would have all the dual card issues, like micro stuttering and so on.
