I have intel i5 2500k @3.3 GHZ
MOBO : P8h61-mlx
PSU : Cooler master GX550

So,
I have tried 2 cards both are fail for me.
1)INNO 3D GTX 550 ti:
Its fail for me cause of bottlenecking my cpu and not giving the performance it was giving on my amd x3.
2)EVGA GTX 460 SE:
Its fail for me cause of graphics garbage i bought it recently and its doing some prob while playing when i play games like bf3 its giving good performance but after some hours the graphics garbage comes and make pc restart it happens to many time so cant take a risk to buy another same card.

The cards which are out of stock from market:
1)GTX 460.
2)ATI 6850.
3)ATI 6790.

The cards which are in stock and in my range:
1)HIS/Sapphire ATI 7770.
2)HIS/Sapphire ATI 6770.
3)EVGA GTX 550 ti 1 GB SC.
4)EVGA GTX 550 ti 1 GB.

personal opinion, choice 1 assuming all 4 choices are relatively the same price. choice one should be the strongest of the bunch(on average) and consume the least power.

The CPU works, just overclocking does not.

Yes it does... he's currently running it!

Of your list, the 7770 is easily the best card.

So do you think that if 6790 is in stock that can rape all of them?

The better question here is: what is your budget?

Well cant understand it to you guys because in our country market rates are different as compare to dollars and my range is in our own currency so you cant understand it too but if you still wanna know my range is 14000 PKR.

14000 Pakistani rupees = 147.1596 US dollars

Google is your friend...

OK, so are the cards you listed originally the best you can afford?

I would suggest

Sapphire Radeon HD 7850 1 Go

You can have it for 174€ in France so probably 174$ in the states.
Best bang for the bucks at this price, if it's not too expensive

In that case the 7770. It is almost on par with the 6850 in many benchmarks after recent driver updates.
