Default What Graphic Card?

I want to look for a graphic card that can handle smoothly hardcore games (Battlefield 3, Crysis 2) and graphic intensive programs (Photoshop, Flash, Vegas Pro). I'm not to concerned on price but I would like to have the best deal.
Thank You. Also just interested but what graphic card do you use and is it good or bad?

Gtx 670 currently has free FTW, which is about 400 bucks. However, you can get the same performance by sli-ing gtx 550ti which go for about 120 per piece. However, you need a mobo to have sli qualified.

your main choices are the gtx 670 or the gigabyte radeon 7970hd oc.
Or for quite a bit cheaper is the sapphire 7850hd oc.

I use gtx 560 ti and it's the most ban for your buck in terms of high performance cards.
