Default I'm building a new system and need help choosing a video card.

I'm looking to spend no more than $300 on my new gaming card

Here are a few cards I like:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814102483

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130214

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130258

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814150108

Which one should I get?

Better than the XFX and kills any of the other cards you linked.

Are you sure? I thought the X850XT would be faster because of the higher clock speed? Or does having more pixelpipelines make it much faster than having a higher core clock speed?
