I'm thinking of upgrading my current Nvidiaq GTS 450 to a better GPU, and would like to go with a Radeon HD card. My budget is $150, which is the best card to get?

The HD7770 and 650 Ti are in your price range

Assuming it surfaces at the $150 target Nvidia tells us to expect, the GeForce GTX 650 Ti offers the best performance at its price point, with average frame rates that outclass the Radeon HD 6850. The Radeon HD 7770 is beaten even more soundly.

That's an old test, without using the latest AMD drivers. The 7770 now trounces the 650ti.

Something to consider if you're wanting to go AMD, and are willing to chance a rebate, there are several HD7850 models available for $160 to $170 after rebate. For a bit extra you get a significant performance bump.

7770 for sure, but if you can get a 7850 on sale then i would go for it.

Don't make me laugh. The 650Ti (Was before 12.11) 7% stronger than the 7770 for 20-25% more money. Congradulations Nvidia! Oh and the 7850 1GB is basically the same price and 20% stronger...
