$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:

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