My gaming PC is getting a bit antiquated now but I don't plan to build out a new one soon. I'm looking into whether upgrading the graphics card will be worth it.

I tried to compare my 8800GT SLI setup to some of the newer cards, but my cards appear to be too old to get included in any of the new graphics charts. My question is, is there a sub $200 card out there today that would give noticeable gains over my 8800 GT SLI setup? I'm looking to play some BF3 without too many hiccups. 1680x1024 max resolution for my monitor.

Any insight is appreciated.

Thought I should also add my other hardware specs:

ASUS P5N-D Motherboard
4GB Patriot DDR2 memory (PC2-6400)
Core2Duo E8400 (3Ghz)
Thermaltake Toughpower 850W PS

Not for 200 dollar and also with that cpu you will get a bottleneck soon i'm afraid.

If you are prepared to spend about 50 bucks more you could go with a 560ti or 6950, overclock the E8400 and you should get some more out of your system till your next upgrade.
