Whats the best card for Battlefield 3 in the $150-$200 range?

550BE unlocked to qaud 3.6ghz
4 GB DDR3

Currently using a 5750 that's barely running the game.

Thx

Omaroma is right, Battlefield does prefer nvidia. So, the 560 ti would perform better in that ONE game, but overall the 7850 is a better card that is close to 570 level performance. If you could push your budget a little more, you could get a 660 for about $230

That is true, bf3 does work better with NVIDIA. However the 560 Ti is 30-35 bucks more. And its difference is minimal. If your willing to pay the extra 30-35 bucks for 3-5 FPS then go ahead. As that the 7850 beats the 560 Ti in ALOT. And it only loses in portal and bf3. By a very small margin.

If you play ANY games other that battlefield 3, go find yourself a nice 7850 and call it a day.

Enjoy!

Well I've encountered a problem. I didn't mention I'd be upgrading my motherboard to a PCIe 3.0....that's not going to happen now...Christmas spending and all, no budget for it for a while...

Soooo... is there a 6000 series, like maybe a 6950? I know they are getting harder to find though. I know a 3.0 GPU is backwards compatible but surely the loss of bandwidth will make upgrading to a 7850 kind of moot....
