I was going to get a 6850 but I have no means of gaining money unless it's handed to me so should I just get this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

I want play some of the following games on High/Max Settings with at least 30 FPS:

-Crysis: Warhead
-Blacklight Retribution
-Guild Wars 2
-Minecraft W/ Shaders Mod
-PlanetSide 2
and so on...

I know those are pretty demanding game but I was just wanted to know how good they can run.

-Thanks

It depends on the resolution. Still you wont have good performance. I suggest to take one of the following, the best you can afford. It is not a bad deal $100 550ti, but 7770 has much better performance.

I know but they aren't on sale right now :/ 

I found some videos playing games with it as well and they aren't that bad:

Crysis 2: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DqcsQUQ72vQ

Minecraft: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m6ffnprfPlo

IDk, I just thought it might do well, but if I should just save, tell me now.

I agree with Stravros, 7770 is much better performance-wise. Here's some detailed comparison you might want to look at with the two. http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/536?vs=541 As you can see majority of the results goes to 7770, but although you might have different system spec with the ones they're using, so yes, do more a little research with your spec first before convincing yourself which to buy.

When you say it like that, it seems like it'll be pretty easy to get :D
