Hello skitz,

The best card out of the bunch is the 7850.

Tom's Hardware's Best Graphics Cards For The Money: June 2012:
Quote:
The new Radeon HD 7850 offers performance similar to the defunct Radeon HD 6970, GeForce GTX 560 Ti 448-core, and GeForce GTX 570, but at a lower $250 price point.

Moreover, the Radeon HD 7850 does its job using about half of the power as both older boards based on 40 nm GPUs.

In my opinion you have a 4-core CPU, as games in the future will use multi-core CPU's, your CPU will become more useful over time. As long as you have sufficient cooling and good airflow in your case, an overclock will help. You don't have to necessarily have to OC your CPU unless you want serious performance from games like Battlefield 3, the upcoming Crysis 3, or a benchmark game like Metro 2033.

The 7850 is a great card, I think it goes well with your CPU.

The 6970 would have a little higher performance than the 7850. The only difference is the power consumption. The 7850 consumes a lot less power.

Of course. If you are experiencing low fps (which I doubt), you can always overclock your CPU.

The BIOS switch only works with early production models. You can't do that now, since they physically laser cut the cards, meaning you can't do a BIOS switch to a 6970.
