You can sometimes find a 5670 for that. If not they're just over. Not as fast as the other cards posted, but it's the only DX11 card in the price range other than its little brother the 5650. Also uses quite a bit less power than the others.

There's a good deal on HIS's card right now...$95 shipped, $80 after the rebate:

edit: If you're counting rebates, you can probably score a 5750 or even a 5770 for that.

This is a fair easy question as there isn't really any competition for the 4870.

go with a 4870, to tell you the truth a can tell the difference betweet dx10 and dx11, i tried both on BC2 and it looks the same to me, maybe side by side would tell the difference.

BC2 hardly uses DX11 at all.

How does a 4870 compare to an 8800GT? Even the jump from my 8800GT to my 5770 wasn't as great as I had hoped... maybe 50% better? The 8800GT is still a great card, despite its age.

If it's worth $100 for a ~40% jump in FPS (someone correct me if I am wrong), then go for it. Personally, I'd save up until I had at least $200 (or wait for prices to drop accordingly) to get something much better than what you currently have.

4870 is about the same speed (just a tiny bit faster) then your 5770. Certainly costs less though
