Best bang for buck GPU

Nvidia or AMD. I'm a bit more biased towards AMD but willing to look at Nvidia's stuff.

AMD probably has the best bang for the buck cards with their 7850 -7950 cards.

Have you accepted Raspberyl as your loli and savior?

Is the 7950 a whole lot better than the 7850?

I think the 7950's in a good place regarding the price/performance ratio.

What is your budget?
Does it have to be better than your 6950?

The question is too open ended...

Sorry. My Sig needs to be updated since I don't have my pc anymore. My all around budget is around 1k but willing to go up around 1.5k. I'll be building in around 6 months or so. Saving money is a plus. Oh, and probably with a 4670k.

I'd say the 7950 right now. They can be found at around $200 and come with 3 free games.

I also saw a Msi 650 Ti 2GB Boost on sale at Newegg for $105 a few days ago. Mid-high card, but very good bang for your buck for those on a tight budget.

7950 would be the way to go imo.

Where do you see the 7950 for $200? Lowest I can find is $240, but maybe that's just me. If the 7950 can be found for 200, take it. Otherwise, the 760 is a better GPU for the price.
