Just had my Radeon HD 6970 2gb DDR5 die after less than a year and a half of usage. Of course cyberpower only has a 1 year warranty so I have to buy a new card. (Specifically, every time I start my computer it has two giant flickering bars on the screen and cannot even get to windows without a flickering blue screen error).

ASUS M4A89GTD PRO/USB3 890GX CROSSFIRE is my motherboard
I have a cyberpower 240 liquid cooling system
AMD PHENOM II X6 1100T 3.3GHZ is my processor and I have an Acer LED HD monitor, I believe 1920x1080 is the max res and I have an 800 watt power supply.

Can anyone help me pick out a new card? Budget range is from 300-450, I want to get a card that is at least as good as the one that just died. Thanks for any help and this rig is mainly used for gaming.
