Looks like your GPU is dead.

Wow I've never seen that before but I'd agree that card is dead as my friend has a 7850 also.... For 200 you should try bump it up to 300 but either try find a 7870 or 7950. I sold my 7870 XT for $250 which you can buy a newer similiar model for $300 and you can play bf4 on ultra so you should consider saving an extra $100. But... make sure your CPU wont bottleneck it

im thinking of getting a msi gtx 660 or asus hd7870... or 750ti... or another hd7850..

and im sure my cpu will bottleneck all of the listed gc above lol

yeah it will, for amd you need a 6 core to run the 7870 as I had issues with bf4 that revealed it was just bottlenecking. I had to OC my fx4300 to 4.5ghz but it still had the same issue lol. Its properly time for a new build with those specs
