Looking to upgrade my Video card, heard that going AMD video card with the AMD mobo and CPU is a better option. I have always used nvidia so I was looking to get this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... but I was wondering if there is a stronger AMD card for about 120-150.

hd6850 or 6870 is more powerful than 550 ti for the price range you asked for. well that's what passmark said on their benchmark for top end gpus.

Awesome I think 6870 will be the way to go for me, anyone know about the second part of my question concerning if the AMD card actually has a greater combined performance when running alongside an AMD cpu and mobo? Or is that just marketing?

mcmurraym, that last question you asked is true if you bought a APU that is capable of crossfire with a dedicated gpu other than that nope.
