Best Graphics card for under $250

Hey guys i need some help i'm upgrading my Radeon HD6850 and i have $250 but I'm not sure on what to get.


I have a 700w Thermaltake psu and an i7 2700k overclocked to 4.9 ghz so no bottleneck should occur

The games i want to play at Maximum settings are:

Battlefield 3

CoD Black ops 2

GTA IV + 5

Css
------------------------------------

AMD or nVidia either is perfectly fine. :)
Thanks in Advance, Christopher

    I actually just sold my HD 6870 yesterday for $130 USD. So right now I'm stuck with my core i5 2500k integrated graphics until I get a newer card :cry:

  14. Guys you still haven't answered my question haha whats the best graphics card for under $250 $260 bucks ?
  15. for >$250 right now the answer is the 7870. However if you could sell your 6850 first and ad $100 to your budget getting the gtx 670 would be your best bang for $$
