Which graphics card should I buy?

Hi guys,

I'm thinking about buying a new graphics card and I think I'll buy ATI. I have Radeon HD 4870 right now, it's been approximately 2 years and I was almost happy about that card. I have GA-970A-DS3 motherboard, AMD Phenom 2 X3 processor, 750 Watt Cooler Master PSU. My budget limit is 150-200 dollars. Can you guys suggest me a good graphics card. I want to use that for another 2 years. I mean, like in HD 4870, I want to be able to play latest games with full graphics options 2 years later. (Actually HD 4870 is having hard time with games these days, especially in Battlefield 3)

Any opinios is much appreciated since I don't know so much about PC technology.

    It actually is 2 generation over yours but it will do the same as its predecessor, it will run BF3 on high or even in ultra in single player with good FPS, also it has a really nice cooling...

    Another suggestion is the GTX560ti but is about 20 bucks more expensive and the performance difference will not be that much...
  2. So, NVIDIA won't make any problems on my AMD motherboard and processor? Some say it does...
  3. Actually no, you can add nvidia cards into amd mobos and it will work, as you can add an amd card to a intel mobo and it will work too

    for running a card you only need a PCIe slot and enough power from the PSU, compatibility is universal....
  4. Agreed with the 6870. However, if you can wait and maybe find another $50 then go for this. It's a beast.
