Hey there, i have the opportunity to buy a new card with a 250$ budget. In the same time i'll be buying a ridicoulous cheap i7-2700k build from someone near which will give a nice boost in everything. I plan on gaming at 1080p this time up from 1680x1050. Theres a multiple list of games that i would like to max out with atleast x2 AA ; most which i havent played and will in the following month such: Skyrim, ME 3, BF 3 DLC's, Crysis wh and any other recent releases or upcoming. I know for sure the card will bring a strong upgrade, but will it be able to meet the standards? In some games the card barely pushes 30 fps in the reviews, but i know they pull even higher demanding settings to push the cards. The 7870 is not an option unless it goes below 300 which wont happen any time soon. The gtx 460 is my first card after a radeon 4850 and besides the perfomance and temps, for some reason my games had a strange IQ with snow and flashy jaggies on the edges that even the highest settings did not fix. Never had that issues with amd cards, reason im deciding to go their path this generation.
