I bought a pair of Asus GTX 550Ti's that I tossed in SLi last year as a debate on what route to go with in GPU's. Since, at the time the price/performance was just haywire from my vantage point; I decided to drop in a couple of these cards. With this in mind, now it's come to a time where I may possibly just upgrade, single card.
I've been looking in the $300 range and seems to me so far, the 7950 3GB has become the best choice. However; I'm not exactly sure where to go. I'm looking for the absolute biggest bang for my buck; and $200 would be a golden price. I want to outperform these cards for sure, but if it's only a 10% gain; not worth it.
I've narrowed it down and like I said, I have the best choice of mine right now, but these are in order of where I'm seeing them as performance goes.
2x 7850 CrossfireX
I'd prefer to go single card; just not sure where to go. I don't want to break $300 for sure, and the 7850's would probably do just that. But what other options should I look into? Before I go, I'll drop my system specs just in case it's needed.
