Hello Tom's Hardware! I'm currently in the market for a new video card. I'm looking at the GTX cards, but don't know which one would be good for me as I'm not into all the technical stuff when it comes to GPU's. I'm a PC gamer. Love it. And that's also the reason why I'm looking for a new GPU. I want a increase in my FPS.

I also want to get into recording my own gameplay to make guides, tips & tricks videos, or just showcase my gameplay. However, recording gameplay whether it be Call of Duty, Battlefield 3, Guild Wars 2, etc. it really brings down my FPS. I will list the specs of my rig. Nothing has be overclocked.

Monitor Resolution - 1600 x 900
CPU - AMD FX-6200 Zambezi (6 Cores)
Mobo - Biostar A880GZ
RAM - G-Skill DDR3 8GB
GPU - Radeon HD 6850
PSU - 600W

The reason why I have the hex core CPU is because I also do video editing. I got the hex core with HD video editing (some times big files) and HD game recording in mind. I had a quad core but figured the hex would be better due to the demanding tasks. I could of made a mistake, but its not permanent.

So. Like I said earlier, I can't decide between a GTX 650 Ti, 560, or 660. Please, if another card not listed would suit me better, please let it be know. I want the best bang for my buck. My budget is $270ish.

Those would all be only marginally better than the 6850. I would go for the Radeon HD7850 or better.

Well the 660 is the best out of all 3 of them. http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/660?vs=543

The 660 is even better than the Ti version of the of 560.

As for 270$ you can get a better card than the 660.

The XFX 7870 would be better than 660 at the same price.

If you want to spend a little extra I would grab the 7950 which is running at 289 after rebate.
