Holy toledo, you're getting ripped off in that country. Try to find an international seller that's willing to sell at US market prices. (~280-300 eur)

I would wait till new consoles are out, so you see how much power the new ports need and make upgrading decisions based on that.

even the 650 Ti BOOST is a big upgrade from your 6850. but if you have more cash now, get the 660 Ti.

I upgraded from a BFG 8800 GTX OC 768mb to an Asus GTX 660 Ti OC and I was having to play with all the same settings as before. Only when I installed my 2nd 660 Ti did I notice a huge difference. It was way better, don't get me wrong, I doubt that 8800 could've played Skyrim at all. I see 660 Ti reference models on ebay for under $200 all the time. Some with very low hours on them. That is going to be your best performance to cash ratio vcard.

You're saying that the 660ti only let you play on the same settings as an 8800gtx!? You are either crazy or you're doing something wrong.

Haha anyway OP I agree that a 660ti is a good choice, but I still think a 7870xt is better bang for the buck.
