Please take into account my current system.
AMD Phenom II x4 955 3.2ghz ($120 or $110 with promotional code BY 5/20)
And either a 6850 or 6870
6870 - $190 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814102913
6850 - $170 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814102908
Combined total of $310 ($300 with promotional) [CPU + 6870]
or $290 ($280 with cpu promotional) [CPU + 6850]
Best bang for buck would be the option with a 6870
You could also cost that cost and go with a 6770 maybe, but you get like 1/2 the performance of a 6850
