Recommendation for new Graphics Card

Hello Everyone,

I just recently bought a XFX R7 240 2GB v3.0 and I think I might just go ahead and exchange the card for something else. I'd like to use it for gaming but not to break my wallet. My price goes max to $150 and I prefer AMD cards so that I may use Crossfire. This is a custom made computer I built myself. I use it mostly to play Skyrim and will soon be playing ESO.

Any suggestions?

Specs:
OS: Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit
Mobo: Gigabyte GA-970A-UD3
RAM: G.Skill Ripjaws 8GB
CPU: AMD FX-6300 Vishera 3.5GHz
PSU: Rosewill 500W

I'm a little confused, are you asking for 2 GPU with $150 so you can crossfire with it? Nvidia can do similar thing via SLI.

I wanna buy one right now no more than $150 and later on I'll buy the same to Crossfire.

Are you ok with using Nvidia GTX 750 Ti? It will outperform R7 240 for sure, and its new architecture uses very little amount of wattage, which mean you can probably SLI it in the future without having to upgrade your GPU.

I have used Nvidia cards before but I prefer AMD cards because of the processor I have.

You'll have no issues with nVidia cards and AMD CPU, but since there are good AMD products in your price range, you can feel better and match them.

Radeon R7 260X is right in your price range. Unless you overclock your CPU you would not really need to crossfire the cards, you may be CPU limited in that case. The 260X is good enough to run new games at good resolutions and settings.

A 260x or 7850 would serve you well. The 7850 will be a little stronger and at your $$ limit.
