Specs: Case CoolerMaster HAF 932 Advanced Full Tower Gaming Case,
AMD A8-3870K APU 4x 3.00GHz/4MB L2 Cache, 16G RAM, ASUS F1A75-V PRO, x2 Radeon HD 6670 CSX

Been running in Crossfire and luckily no problems and max settings for all games BF3-Skyrim... Think one of my card are starting to die so I just want to upgrade to a single better card if possible. If the price of a card is a bit above $50 thats cool. Just what to hear you guys opinion, thanks!

Sorry I missed a 0* after the 50, though I see you you judge logic when the post title clearly says the correct budget in bold.

Now I see (I usually open 3-4 links at a time and read through them so by the time I get to one I have no clue what the title was I just read the post)! Anyway for 500$ I would go for the gtx 680, no doubt!

Gigabyte GTX 670 OC or Asus DCII GTX670 or MSI GTX 670 PE OC :)  performance is similiar to a 680 stock.

Thank you for your replies, However due to my Motherboard I have to stick with ATI. As for the 7970 I have the space and enough fans for cooling (Though as far as the reviews the card cools itself perfectly) However I wonder if I will need to increase my power. I have an 800v as of now and I'm not sure if I'll need more to power that card.

Who said you have to stick with ATI? You can use any card you want with that graphics card motherboard/processor.

^fail on my part

No I can't. Actually it was a fail on my part when I bought Nvidia card at first and couldnt use them because the motherboard is ATI specific... XD

There's no such thing as a board that is ATI specific. As long as it has a PCIE slot, you can use Nvidia or AMD/ATI cards.
