So I am currently using a Radeon HD 2600 video card that I have had for a while. My systems not the best, but its really starting to struggle playing games (mostly I play Star Wars: The Old Republic at 15-20 fps). Did some research today and the Radeon HD 6790 looked to be my best bang for the buck in my price range ($150). I just want to make sure its the best one to go with before I pull the trigger.
