The 6850 would be the best performer of that group.

 

HD-6850 > HD-6790 > GTX-550ti >= HD-6770 > GTS-250

 

Not sure you'll find a NEW 6850 for $125 though ?

 

PowerColor AX6850http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814131374 = $130.00 After MIR

XFX HD-685X-ZCFC = http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814150573 = $135.00 After MIR

ASUS EAH6850 DC/2DIS/1GD5/V2 = http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814121419 = $140.00 After MIR

SAPPhIRE 100315L = http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102908 = $150.00 After MIR

 

Also Sapphire had a 2GB version of this card, which would be even better ...

SAPPhIRE 100315-2GL = http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102959 = $180.00 After MIR 

 

I had a HD-5770 (6770 is the same)  and it's a very nice card / good Bang for your Buck ... upgraded to my TOXIC HD-6950 (Unlocked & OC'd) and it's DOUBLE the performance. I think you'd be VERY Happy with the jump in performance from a GTS-250 to a HD-6850. Good Luck thumb.gif

Best I could find is $130 for a Powercolor on Ewiz (here)
Have to use $15 promo code (SAVE15), but it expires at 12am PST.

if your going to get a 6850, just get a 6870 for the same price.... rolleyes.gif

just stay away from XFX. Had bad products from them all the time.

I think the 6850 was already pushing his budget limits ... and while CLOSE the 6870's tend to be a little bit more even ... from $140 up to $225.00

I do agree in general with your Stay Clear of XFX card recommendation though thumb.gif

Thanks for all the replys. But looks like I have to wait untill about the end of march to get a card had to buy a new wirelesscard and a few other thing I had to buy that were unexpected. Hopefully buy then the 6850 or 6870 will be a lot cheaper then.
