Upgrading from MSI gtx 460

This is my current rig:

- Amd 1090t @4.0 ghz

- Biostar A870U3 Ver. 6.x

- MSI gtx 460 1 GB GDDR5

- 8gb skill ram ddr3 1600

- PSU 650W

My question is what would be a good upgrade for my Graphics card ? My rig plays any game I throw at with some tweaks, some games such as battlefield 3 and skyrim. I know in the future games are going to get more and more demanding and are going to need high end graphics card. My budget is from $200 to $300

Note, I am new to the forums :D

if your system handles everything you throw at it you should hold off on upgrading. There is always something better / cheaper coming out.

The best time to upgrade is when you want something more, but it sounds like your current performance is working well for you.

I upgrade when my card can't really handle what I want it to do.

Of course this is up to you but I want to propose that you might hold off spending money now and wait until you get to a game that does not perform the way you want.

You could get an overclocked EVGA 570 GTX for $280 after rebate. With tax that would fall within your budget. I'm not familiar enough with AMD CPUs to know if your CPU might bottleneck it though.

I might as well as wait, I mean I haven't tried any games online, but I play battlefield 3 just fine at high settings 60 - 70 fps just fine on, Do the frames drop when playing online ?

Just wait, dude. 5-6 weeks the most. I'm too waiting for 670/670ti. They may not fall within your budget but they'll bring other cards' prices down.

Yes they do.You can expect about a 10-20% performance hit when playing on a 64 man server.

I would also vote for the 7850.It's a great card,a good upgrade over your current GTX460 and it can O.C. really well if you choose to do so.Also the Twin Frozr refillable suggested is a really outstanding aftermarket cooler.And with your current PSU you can run them in crossfire without worrying about power.
