It's not under $250; it's fairly hard to find a card that cheap that will play those games. For a single card under $300, the MSI 560GTX is pretty hard to beat, especially the golden edition. With a stock clock of 900 Mhz...

MSI cards are damn reliable, too. A friend of mine has had his GTX560 since it came out, and not a single problem.

Go ahead and spend the extra little bit on this card. You'll be glad you had.

(Check this out, too. They've got stuff on lots of games.:

Honestly I don't see why people buy those HAWK.
They are $50 more than normal version and yet they overclock the same.
My 560Ti DS reached 1000 core with a small voltage bump and the cooler is amazing (never above 55*C in game), yet I saved $50 and I got the same card....



































With a lifetime warranty

b-stock is EVGA's open-box, or refurb items. They are usually great cards for low $, you just sacrifice on warranty.

470 is faster. 1gb is getting less and less these days, too. If you go 560ti, I'd go with the 2gb card (assuming you can find one in your price range).
In progress.

So I will be getting a 560 Ti but what one should I get that could get close to 900Mhz or more.


Nothing above 250$

Well I was going to suggest asus 2 X 460gtx with mail in rebate but it would be 270 and as of yesterday i got a response from the mail in rebate center stating i didnt have everything in there. they said the box cutout of the serial number was missing... however i triple checked before i sent it away .

I'm almost sure they did that on purpose in order to save them money.

I had a $30 rebate for my Asus 5830 card, didn't even bother. It's too low of a chance to get the rebate back.

I don't even care to look at rebates when purchasing items anymore.

Too bad people will still suggest video cards over the budget.
