I am currently running two XFX HD 4850 1GB in Crossfire. I want to upgrade to DX 11 supported card/cards but I don't want to lose too much processing power. What are my options in the sub $200 range?

You could go with the EVGA GTX 480 at $210..

A GTX 480 is a good choice if you really must have DX11. However if you can cope a while longer and save another £100 or so then you can start to look at GTX 670 which has quite a bit more punch. A GTX 480 is still a good card though. ;)  (Personally i'd stay with your HD4850 Xfire until a few more dollars).

I'd personally stay with the 4850x2 until I could really buy something that would show alot of difference. Yea the 480 is awesome, but its not going to be much of a step of performance.

You should save up until you can really get something that can outpace the 4850x2, like the 680 and maybe the 670.
