Currently running a 6870 that isn't quite enough for medium / high detail in GW2, particularly WvW, and a 2500k @ 4.5 GHz

SAPPHIRE 100354OCL Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition 2GB ...

Galaxy 66NPH7DV6XXZ GeForce GTX 660 Ti 2GB 192-bit...
MSI N660TI-2GD5/OC GeForce GTX 660 Ti 2GB 192-bit ...

Despite my AMD fanyboy tendany, I am leaning towards the Galaxy 660 Ti because of it's excellent efficiency compared to the Tahiti LE card, and because it has a blower style heatsink to help more heat out of my case.

I just want the absolute most bang for my buck under $250.
