    My ATI Radeon HD 4850 died, i was looking to buy a new card which can handle games smoothly, my budget is $100-$150, i don't need max resolutions or setting, just want to run the game smoothly like HD4850 on which only Crysis 2 wasn't working.

    GTX 650 Ti is the best card under 150$. But for just 20$ more you could get a much faster HD 7850. Really worth the price.

    I suggest going for the 7850 even if it means saving a little bit more. The 2GB will help and its a much better card overall! Sometimes on Newegg a 7870 can be had for $200

    HD 6670 is slower than HD 4850.

    7850 is not available in my city, the only card which is available from this series is Sapphire HD 7750, any idea about this one ?

    It is somewhat faster, but not by very much. Not really worth upgrading.

    Are there any of these: GTX 560, GTX 560 Ti, GTX 650 Ti, HD 6870, HD 6950 or at least HD 7770? For a higher price (~200$) there should be GTX 660 and HD 7870.

    I cannot buy from newegg as it will take more than a month to reach Karachi, the cards which are available right now in the local market are INNO3D GTX650, INNO3D GTX550Ti, INNO3D GT640, EVGA GTX 550Ti, Sapphire HD 7750, Sapphire HD 6770 and HIS HD 6750.

    Crysis 2 runs maxed out with the 7850. It is a good card. An alternative would be the Nvidia 660 or 660Ti.

    There is no alternative to 7850. It's in the class of its own. GTX 660 and GTX 660 Ti compete with HD 7870 and HD 7950.

    The 660 competes with the 7850, the 660Ti competes with the 7870. OC'ed 7850 beats both, and the 7850 is very easy to OC (whereas the 660 is not). 1200MHz 7850 is in a league of its own. The 7950 competes with the 670 and the 7970 with the 680.

    The 7850 is only marginally slower than the 7870 and the 7870 is on a par with the 660Ti http://hardocp.com/article/2012/11/12/fall_2012_gpu_driver_comparison_roundup/3

    You didn't named a brand of your current GPU. If that GPU run your games smoothly (games that it can run), i would go for the same brand if available.

    I don't think you can go wrong with Asus for your needs. I wouldn't go with INNO3D. For the chip advice, well, you have enough suggestions above.

    Stock goes like this:

    HD 7770 ~ -
    GTX 650 Ti ~ -
    HD 7850 ~ -
    HD 7870 ~ GTX 660
    HD 7950 ~ GTX 660 Ti
    HD 7970 ~ GTX 670
    HD 7970 GHz ~ GTX 680

    Lol. Different brand won't make a different in games. Unless you're thinking of OC or something...

    Inno3D, BTW, is a PCPartner brand. It's legit and reliable.

    Well, it is debatable, for me, it douse make a difference. I can even give you a list of brands i had experience with, and what is the difference, but i will not list if you don't insist since i don't want to start flaming on one or another brand etc. witch will lead to arguing, and yet, all that is subjective, even this statement you laughed at :).

    EDIT: To add confusion even more, i started to seriously think that some of the brands don't export same quality to different regions, since i truly believe that people who comment on specific brands do know what they talk about, so when someone says "x" brand works great, i should have no doubt about it.
