Check this out:

http://www.overclock.net/t/1390202/powercolor-7870-myst-edition/0_100

Melee is selling his/her 7870 Myst edition for $209. Just $9 more than you're budget.
This 7870 LE Tahiti card performs just a bit below 7950 and not by much.

Yea, the 7870 will get you what you want, just fyi, I have a ASUS cuii top 6950 flashed to a full 6970, love it, but bought a ASUS 7870 and blew my flashed 6950 away. I was totally impressed. I get 1200 core and 1500 mem with my 7870 asus in my second rig. on stock voltage.

Ya I like the fact that it is a 7970 reference pcb, afaik, as I intend to put it underwater, but I,m not to sure about those 2. I'm pretty sure the second one link is not but I'm not sure about the second link.

Ya I've seen it if it is still there in the morning I'm going to get it( that is if he/she will sell it to merolleyes.gif). I might just win this 7950 on ebay sub$250 if this other guy will just give up,haha. Probably just a reseller.

Goodluck! Yah, it's not hard finding a 7950 for $250 I think. Since I just bought a new Dual X 7950 for $280 then sold the Never settle bundle for $40. So a used 7950 card's going price really should be around $240.

Well I'm glad I asked here first before buying, because I was looking all over for a 6950 and would have gotten it hadn't the good folks at ocn whipped some knowledge into my aging brain. I tend to act on impulse alot, you'd think that as one gets older they tend to have more patience before foolishly blowing there money, but me I'm lost cause in that department, haha.
