Thanks I think as far as what the OP is looking for that pretty much ends the debate of $200 price performance lmao

Here's a bang for the buck chart for 1920x1200 from TPU based on regular prices with a 6670 as a starting point. EDIT: Id take that GTX480 though.

Imo best bang for the buck GPU ATI/AMD side is the 6850. It would be the 5770 but its only 128-bit. Ive done a ton of benchmark review for budget gaming cards and this really is the sweet spot card. As far as manufacturer goes, just pick your poison and read reviews. I personally am a sucker for Sapphire, XFX, and Gigabyte.

As an owner of a 6850 I can tell everyone right now that they don't have enough power to run the latest games. TW2 does not run ideally on a card like a 6850 so I can only imagine it will be similar or worse for future games like BF3 and TE5. If you are looking to get a new card now I think you should be looking at a 6950. I'm sure you can pick a used one up for $200 or under.

Ppl want to tell you that the 6000 series or the 400 series are the best bang for the buck because of adoption rates/ scaling/OCN being what it is.
The 5770 IS the BEST bang for the buck, barring sales.
For less than $90 most of the time you get a great card, and for less than $180 you get almost a 5870, which is still a great card.
Newer cards are sweet...but for budget minded buyers, the 5770 is fine.

People will argue GTX 560 Ti (one of the non-reference OC'd ones such as the one in my sig or the Asus DirectCU II) and the HD 6950 2GB model (because you can flash it to a 6970 in the BIOS).

Both of these are great for the money, and will tackle every game out there at normal resolutions with no real issues.

I'm still happy with my 4770. However, if you really need the horsepower, the 6950 is where its at I believe.
