    Default GPU Upgrade Help/Advice

    APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: 1 week

    BUDGET: $150-$200 without rebate, I don't do rebates.

    USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Gaming and CAD

    CURRENT GPU AND POWER SUPPLY: GTS 250 and Kingwin Lazer lz-1000

    OTHER RELEVANT SYSTEM SPECS: Asus P8Z77-V Pro,
    i5-2500k(OC 4.7Ghz),
    Kingston HyperX 3K 120GB, Seagate Barracuda ST1000DM003,
    G. Skill Sniper Series 16GB,
    Corsair H100,
    Cooler MasterHAF 912.

    PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: tigerdirect.com, newegg.com, us.ncix.com and amazon.com

    PARTS PREFERENCES: Either AMD or Nvidia is cool, but I'm thinking I'll get more bang for my buck with AMD.

    OVERCLOCKING: Yes, not a huge deal

    SLI OR CROSSFIRE: Yes

    MONITOR RESOLUTION: 1680x1050 and 1920x1080, I switch between 2 different monitors.

    ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: I've been wanting to get a HD 7970 for a while but my wallet just can't afford it. So I lowered my sights to an HD 6950 or a HD 6970, I'm not seeing a Nvidia GPU that compares for the price. Can you guys please help me find the best for $200 flat?
