Upgrade [$250-$300 Budget]

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So i have a 4670 and an athlon X2 @ 3.0 and i need to upgrade. As far as the processor I'm considering either the x6 1090T or the x4 965 depending on my budget.
I've found these four cards and need help deciding. I'm sure that it'll end up between the sapphire 5870 or the xfx 6950, but does anyone know how these cards compare, or why one might be better than the others? According to the specs, the sapphire 5870 is the best, but would the 6950 perform better?
I play mostly BC2 right now at 1600x900.
Thanks

I believe the Sapphire, XFX or MSI Twin Frozr 6950 would be the best.
