7850 HD or 6950 HD or 560 Ti

i just wanted to ask which one is better

should I buy the XFX 7850 HD 2GB and overclock it or buy Sapphire 6950 HD 2GB and flash it to 6970 HD , or forget about those cards and get a 560 Ti 1GB

all of the cards are for 220$ and I cant add a buck :D

Three more question, some of the reviews mentioned that the 6950 HD cant flash to 6970 HD and some of them said that it works perfectly after flashing to 6970 HD

here is the card :

also my motherboard only supports PCI-E 16x 2.0 so keep in mind that the 7850 HD will run slower than usual
my cpu is : AMD Phenom II x4 820 @ 2.8 GHz will it be a bottleneck? how could I overclock it ?

thank you anyway :DDD
