So its nearing Christmas and my brother needs a new video card and there are plenty of options out there now. This is where i come to ask the Giant Brian OCN is. The HD 7850 is around $130, while the GTX 660 is $160, and finally the R9 270 is $185. So what would u guys recommend? He plays BF4, DAYZ, Killing Floor, Farcry 3...ect

I'd go r9 270. Many gaming companies will be supporting Mantel, and you will get free performance that will surely out due the other cards in short order. BF4 will be first up for Mantel in December!
