What is the best card that is roughly around $300? I currently have a 5770 Vapor-X Sapphire. BF3 campaign I get about 30~40FPS I was told that I should upgrade for ultra online. I was thinking of crossfire 6770. But I would rather know what single card I should get.

Thanks.

Under that price ceiling - EVGA GTX 480 for $219.99 (new - no rebate). Just went out of stock - you'd have to wait a couple weeks for shipping.

Amazon has the same card in stock for $249.99. Its powerful, but hot and power hungry. If you can't handle that a GTX 560 Ti 448 can be had for under $300 and is just about as fast, but cooler and more efficient.

I didn't include cards that need rebates to achieve that price limit - you still have to cough up whatever their charging and the money is out of your hands for months.

of the 2 solutions i've showed up i think the 560ti 448cores is a little better, and add the Nvidia 3D Vision + Physx + Cuda, if you are satisfied with amd you will be much more with nvidia...

At $300 the fastest is Nvidia, but the HD 6950 2GB is only 10% or so slower.

MSI vs EVGA now... Lots of decisions.. Again whats your opinions on these company's. I've only have experience with Sapphire and they make amazing cards from my experience.

EVGA is stellar where customer service is concerned - one of the best tech companies period in that area.
