Default Re: Best 200$ graphics card?

I still think the GTX 470 EVGA Rec. for $195 is the better deal ,It is faster then the HD 6850 in ever review I looked at ,and that is at default speed.Once you overclock it as low as 660/1700 then it is faster then the HD 6870I keep hearing they run hot ,but I have three of them but just running two so I have a space between them and mine idle at 34c and 35c.Running vantage or 3Dmark 11 they never get above 72c with the fan at 70% which it is quiet and I run them at 700/1400/1750 at default voltage.But I have a good cooling case.I see the reviews but I never reach 88c unless I am really overclocking it with more voltage 825/1650/1900.Plus the Antec High Current Gamer Series HCG-520 520W for $53 with it's 10% discount and free shipping.It has a single 12v rail of 40amps and it up to 88% efficient.
