Best graphics card for 200-300 USD

I have spent the last few weeks researching parts for my first ever computer build. I have given myself a $1000 budget and The rest of my parts add up to $700 so I am looking for the best graphics card for the money. I don't have a preference for brands and I'm using a full tower case. My only want is that I want it to be SLI/Crossfire compatible because in the future I would like to throw another one in. Thanks in advance for the help!

    Here are two pretty good deals right now, especially with the free game coupons, which you can sell and make up some of the cost (or use). I picked up the 7950 about 3 weeks ago and its been great so far.
  2. Radeon 7870 for about 220-230$ and 7950$ for 300$. Really out perform a lot of nvidia cards in that bracket.
  3. I was looking at the 7950s, but didn't know what manufacturer to go with. Is sapphire the way to go?

    The only comparable card is the GTX 670, which is well over 300. this thing should be able to max out a lot of games.

    Sapphire, Gigabyte, and Asus are generally pretty good parts.
  5. So is the gigabyte version superior to the sapphire edition? I'm sorry if I'm asking dumb questions I really just don't know how to tell one video card from the next besides the VRAM. Thank you guys for all your help.

    Sapphire is basically AMD's go-to guy, like EVGA is nVidia's. Gigabyte has pretty good build quality and cooling, but Sapphire has longevity and is going to be the reference model for AMD's cards 9 times out of 10.
