    The Radeon R7 250X is probably the fastest card you can get for that sort of budget. Make sure to get one with GDDR5 memory (don't be tempted by a card with a large amount of DDR3 ram on it as it will just crawl).

    It isn't the 250x, but i think it will work properly

    It will work, however it might not be any faster (or even a bit slower) than you're old card...

    The 250X is basically double a standard 250 (640 shader cores vs 384):

    If you can find a 250X in you're budget you'll get much more performance out of it!
