Please recommend a card out of these three which can max out new games like Max Payne 3, sleeping dogs, LA noire etc :)

Out of those three, I recommend the Sapphire Radeon 7770. It performs on-par with the 6850 (maybe a little ahead on average) at a much lower level of power consumption.

Just FYI, it's GDDR5, not DDR5. The two are surprisingly different technologies despite such similar names and DDR5 is currently not in use (it won't be until around five to eight years from now).

Whats your budget? Id list that and someone might be able to find a card outside your list that will do better and is still in the budget. I dont know AMD cards but you wont be maxing many games on a 550

It's personal preference. Which is clocked higher, which has the longer warranty and which is cheaper?
