    $300 max since in my country price rises considerably due to the taxes when ordering from amazon

    Then definitely the HD 7950. I wouldn't say the GTX 660ti is a good upgrade to the HD 5850 because it has a narrower memory bus, even though it has significantly more muscle. The HD 7950 has the same muscle, but will last you much longer because it will never be memory-bottlenecked.

    i'd love to help you out, but even with google translate i don't understand this site:
    http://www.intelaf.com/

    can you order from there?


    edit: nevermind, i just found the video cards and they are all old or over priced :p
