  1. If you want an amd card get the 7950, it comes now with two games free, crysis 3 and bioshock infinite.
    Here's a 7950(there're others, just the cheapest with mir) : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814202006
  2. Since you use probably a ton of texture packs i recommend you get a 7970 3GB since you need the vram. 350$ isn't gonna get you any 4GB card worth getting to run Skyrim ultra with textures
