Hey guys,

I'm looking to upgrade my good ol' Radeon 6850. I haven't really been keeping up with graphics cards lately, but I know my card is definitely aging lol. I usually prefer Nvidia but at this point, I'm open for the best cost to performance ratio card for 350 dollars. My current set up is a i5-2500k, 8gb of ram, and a Corsair TX650w PSU. I usually like to game at pretty much maxed out settings at 1920x1080 or lower. I don't mind overclocking either if that pulls out a lot of potential out of the card.

Agree with Djangoringo, at that price point and resolution the 670 is the way to go.

Yep. You can almost certainly sell that 6850 to make up the difference.

That 670 Gigabyte card is an excellent choice +1.

You also may want to consider Gigabyte's 7950, it is $300. There is another 7950 available for $280 if you really want to pinch pennies.
