Best $170 card?

I don't care if it's used, refurbished, open box, whatever. I just want the best WORKING card I can get for my small budget. Anyone's input is appreciated. (:

  1. whats your power supply
  2. I'm running a 400w but I'll upgrade the psu to fit whichever card I get.
  3. $160 SAPPHIRE 11201-00-20G Radeon HD 7770 GHz Edition 1GB GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card

    this card requires a single 6 pin power connector so your current psu should do
  4. How many amps does your psu have on the +12v1 and the +12v2 rails combined?
  5. Forget the psu, I intend on up grading to a 680w right before this card.

    Is the 7770 better than the 460? or the 6870?
  6. ^yes it is better. Especially in DX11 where the 7000 series really kicks butt
  7. I meant better than the 560****
    I'm mainly going to be playing bf3 & mw3 in 1080p with a phenom ii x6 1100t if that matters.

    The 6870 beats those other two cards I believe a 560 is about on par. A 500w 80plus psu from Corsair, XFX or Antec is plenty.

    The 560 theoretically kicks the 7770's ass....
  10. actually in BG3 the 6870 leads by a large amrgin, but in skyrim the 7770 beats it:
