My current GRAPHICS CARD is an: NVIDIA GeForce 8500 GT

Yes, I know, weak computer but I want to know what upgrades that I should make to play games such as BF4 on Medium-Ultra or Arma III. I am leaning toward a 100-250 budget, 300$ Max. I love hardcore gaming but my budget is low right now.

It would be helpful if you could find wattage of your PSU.
Anyways I would suggest a GTX 750 Ti. ~$110. Can run most new titles at low-ultra at a solid 45+ FPS, and some models don't even require a power connector to the PSU. Its a very efficient GPU. AMD has many good offerings too, such as teh R9 270X. A bit more expensive, but better performance too.

For 105? Wow. Thats a good deal where ever your getting that. You will definitely see some good performance. That card takes about 200w. I would suggest upgrading the PSU to a 450w supply. You may be able to pull it off if the PSU does do more than 300w, but if its 300 or less it probably won't be able to keep up with the power requirements.

R9 270X for $105? I'd be wary if they are used since used R9 270xs were probably abused when mining for cryptocurrencies.

Yeah. The used AMD market has flooded with poor GPUs that have been abused pretty hard. 24/7 100% usage...

Cryptocurrency is every AMD fan's enemy. They are just too good ;) 
Seriously though its good that the prices have calmed down a bit.
