I currently have a i5-2500k @ 4.6 and an EVGA 560ti 448. I run games at 1920x1080, and I like to turn AA and all the settings up.

What card would be best for an upgrade around 300-350?

I was looking at Nvidia 670, 660ti and AMD 7950, 7970. I plan to sell my current 560ti 448 to get a little bit back.

thanks

7970 will give the best performance overall but might be out of your budget.

On a side note, what does AA mean?

I narrowed it down to a 670 vs 7970. I've been looking through the forums and seen a couple of posts about these two cards. They are slightly above my $350 target, but I think it's worth the investment, and I can sell the bundled games to make up for it.
