Upgrading 8800GT, Budget ~150-~200 US dollars.

APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE:ASAP BUDGET RANGE: USD $150-200 Before Rebates

USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: General Gaming. I dont really have a game in mind. But think more BF3 and not Mario Brothers or WoW. :P

CURRENT GPU AND POWER SUPPLY Nvidia Geforce 8800GT 768k and Ultra LSP 650W PS.

OTHER RELEVANT SYSTEM SPECS:
Board: ASUS M5A88-V EVO Rev X.0x
Proc: 3.60 gigahertz AMD FX-4100 Quad-Core
Memory: 8GB PC3-10600 Unbuffered Non-ECC 1333MHz

COUNTRY OF ORIGIN:US

PARTS PREFERENCES:Have always owned Nvidia cards, but this Mobo supports ATI Crossfire, so I am open to ATI for this build.

OVERCLOCKING:No
SLI OR CROSSFIRE: Maybe Crossfire (suggestions?)

MONITOR RESOLUTION:Using Vizio E260MV (max res, I believe is: 1920x1080 my current res.)

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: I would like to have an upgrade to my current card. I blew up my old momo last week and just did a rebuild with the above specs. I realized that I might be able to get a better card for the machine..but haven't done complete build in like 8 years...so I out of date on what's good or not.

I saw this card: Sapphire AMD Radeon HD 6850 PCIE @ Amazon. It's $139 bucks, but I dont know its an upgrade or not.

Thanks for any help or advice. I know there is a another post regarding upgrading the 8800GT, but my specs are a little different.
