my rig spec is

- Intel i7 2600k/i5 2500K
- MSI Z68A-GD80 G3
- Corsair 8GB RAM
- Corsair 650 watt

For $150 I would suggest going for the 6850.It's faster than both the GTX550ti and 6790 and it O.C.'s nicely.

XFX 6850 $160=$130 after MIR + Free Shipping

You also get a free game with that card.

If you can stretch your budget just a little more this card is the best bang for your budget.And it even comes to within your budget after the MIR.You won't be disappointed,I know, I own one.
