Okay I have been reading so much about performance of Nvidia vs AMD GPUs and over all Nvidia's GPUs beat the AMD at alot of things. However I have always used AMD and the performance has never been bad in my opinion. Im building a rig and i want to put in a graphics card thats affordable yet can play the latest games like BF3 MW3 NFS:The Run Crysis 2, etc etc... without major loss in FPS and performance.

I was looking at gtx 500 series and 600 series for the NVidia end and 6000 and 7000 series for the AMD end.

More specifically i looked at,

GTX 550ti, 560/560ti, 570, 580, 670

AMD Radeaon 7870, 7950, 7970, 6770, 6790, 6850, 6870 and 6950

All of these graphics cards seem to be really good. I have read on many forums that they all take the latest games well at ultra or whatever the highest settings are for the specific game. I have watched many gameplay videos for several of the gpu's and I honestly could not tell the difference(maybe cause I wasnt directly infront of the rig).

So ultimately I want a GPU thats affordable, keeps quiet, does not heat up toooo much and plays some of the newest titles well. (The option to overclock is ok, though I may not do it).

Maybe a price budget of....say 200-280$....$300 maximum.

Thanks for all the help I get.

I havent built the computer yet, but im gunna be using a 750 watt psu i like the price range of those 2 cards there. I wanted the 670 but its really expensive so if i couldnt get the 670 it may have been the 570 but im flexible so which ever of the amd or nvidia gfx cards can play the latest games is good for me
