I'd skip the r7 250 unless you absolutely have to keep it at $80. You can find a 260x for $100-$110.

If you look at this page, it shows the GPU performance of each card. Their recommendation is to only upgrade 3 tiers or more. Your cards are only 1 tier apart. You may be better off saving a little longer until you can get a R9 270.
