I'm planning on getting an EVGA GTX 660 in a month or so. I cant really afford to spend more than 250, but i'd like to stay as close to 200 as possible on it and i was curious if AMD had a better offering for the price.

On a side note my PSU only has one 6-pin connector

The Radeon HD 7850 2GB runs close to $200, though I'm not sure if this comparison is up to date with the drivers. So it might actually perform only slightly worse.

And it only requires 1 6-pin PCI-Express plug

ok after looking around a bit more another question comes. would the 7870 be better than the 7850 as far as price/performance goes.

Considering you can get one as low as $230, yes.
