Looking to upgrade from my current 9800gtx card. I mostly use it for gaming, mainly Battlefield Bad Company 2. Would like to stay under $200.00 if possible. Have done business with Newegg but i am open to anyone. System Information

If SLI is optional with your current system then a second 9800gtx + would do wonders and well with in your current budget. If you are willing to take the risk on the second hand market then a used GTX260 -GTX275 would be quite the upgrade while a 4850-4870-4890 can be had under $200. Its up to you what you want.
If its a standard 9800 GTX you would see a fairly noticeable improvement going to a good HD 5770, HD 4890 or GTX 260 (216). If its a 9800 GTX+, less so. Not a lot you can get under $200 that would make a huge difference.
