Any Recommendations on a Good Video Card ($100 or Below) For My PC?

My current video card doesn't support DirectX 11 and I'm wanting to upgrade. I play a lot of DayZ, Rust, Diablo 3 and Skyrim.

Just looking to see if there is any good deals (below $100) on good compatible video cards for my custom built PC.

At some point, I'm going to get a second monitor. Thanks!

Here is my list of specs:

Ahh.. the old Bloomfield... Still great cpu, AND 8 threads. I think you should think about 7790, which is slightly over your budget, but you can get one for as low as $110 with rebate. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... This beats any gpu around the same price range. It is equal or better than the once mighty HD6870.

Without breaking your budget, for $100 you can get this HD7770: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Make sure you have a reasonable PSU.
If your PSU is weak, the strongest you can get is a HD7750 like this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... for $90. That card is also single-slot.
AVOID any DDR3 version of the HD7750; these are underperforming abominations.
Edit: Yeah, companies that use DDR3 are just being sneaky, trying to pull a fast one.

I'd have to +1 goonbar, if you can afford the extra $10 for a 7790, AMD's got the price/performance crown at that area, the 650 ti boost just hasn't come down to the same price, so i can't recommend it. The 7750 is the most powerful slot powered GPU you can buy right now as well, so like Onus said, it depends somewhat on your PSU

HardOCP compared the GTX650Ti Boost and the HD7790. The HD7790 was shown to be good for modern games on medium settings, the GTX650Ti Boost was good for the same games on High settings.

Yes, that's a Boost Edition card.

Of course 650 Ti Boost is better than 7790. It is $50+ more expensive...

When that review was done, both cards had recently come out, and the HD7790 was way overpriced, up around $160-$170.
