sweet thanks, 570 for $239 is a good price? even in U.S?

if I can't get the 570 for $239, which one will you recommend next?
For 239 yeah its good.Then go for the 7850.See 7850 is probably faster than 570 so its best if u go for 7850 straight ahead.

At stock 570 is 5-10% faster. However, once oced, 7850 is up to 10-15% faster as of now, more like 10% oced vs oced but with time that difference will increase VRAM demanding situations, especially for min FPS/smoothness.

If you can get a GTX 580 under $280, then that would be a comparable deal. Though you would still need to be able to afford a better PSU, more power, more cooling since the heat is much more, and still VRAM limitations. So ideally assuming both are $250 they are about equal, 7850 and 580 since both are comparable once oced but 7850 has more VRAM and is more future proof etc. However, 580 up to $280 can be considered.

$300+ for 580 OR Rs.250ish for 570/6970 = NO DEAL

I know that RAM right now on cards 2gb vs 1.2gb isn't that much difference, by the time games need 2gb to run smoothly both cards will be long outdated, however, I'm hoping to game on 1920x1080, in this situation doesn't RAM size make a differnce?

For most of the games it won't make any difference,but there will always be exceptions.If u find a 7850 ~230$ grab it.

After a flakey experience with a 7970,i have come to base my purchase decisions solely on stock clock performance,while sounding silly and maybe out of place,its guaranteed performance and if you can afford it,go for it,hence my suggestion for a gtx570.

By the time i apply smooth playable settings in my most demanding game BF3,it hardly even touchs 950mb and i need no crazy insane voltages or hope for a good overclock,but if your gaming on multimonitors....i would go 7850 for sure.
