I am running an i5-3350P CPU @ 3.10GHz on a Gigabyete B75M-D3H motherboard with
8GB DDR3 1600 RAM on a 24" 1920x1080 monitor. I have an GTX 260 card that is showing its age. I am looking for the best budget graphics card ($150ish) that will show improvement. Currently playing BF4 on medium and I am happy with performance but would like to improve the visuals without suffering. Any advice! Thanks.

Hah, I'm in the same boat as you. Looking to upgrade from a 4890. I'm personally looking at either the GTX 660 or the new R9 265 coming at.

260x or 650ti boost, in above benchmark ur GTX260 is similar to GTX650


That's my concern. It seems like everything I find in my price range is almost equal to the GTX 260, even though it is 5 years old!

U can get GTX660 in $180(110% more powerful than ur 260) or 650ti boost in $170(90% improvement over 260). That link shows
R7 260x it is not ur GTX260. GTX260=GTX650
