My System Specs

Default EVGA GTX 650 Ti Boost vs XFX Radeon HD 7850

Which would be the better card to get? They perform simillar from what I have seen in benchmarks, they are around the same price.

The GTX 650 Ti Boost is $165.00
The Radeon 7850 is $170.00

I'll be using it to play WoW and Diablo III and Civilization V.

System Specs:

CPU: AMD A10 6800K
Motherboard: ASRock FM2A85X Extreme4-M
RAM: Corsair Vengance 8GB DDR3-1600
PSU: Corsair AX850
Case: Corsair 350D
Cooling: NZXT Kraken X-60

Your opinions are greatly appreciated.

Oh ya, forgot about the free games. The 7850 gets you a choice of 2 free games, many of them AAA titles. That is a value add for sure. Go for the 7850!

Civ V is awesome btw...wasted many hours playing that game!
