Can I ask why your set on amd?

You can get a nvidia 560ti for $180 after rebates. The closest amd card to the 560 ti is the 6950 which is very very slightly faster, but seems to be at $230 cheapest.

Umm, that would be kind of difficult, for less than $200.00 especially for crossfire. The best you can do at that much is crossfire 6770, but that at most will get you roughly medium settings or modified high settings.

I would say just go with the best single card you can afford. A 560Ti would be a good start. You could get a GTX 480 for that money these days as well.
You would need to be sure you have a good enough power supply first especially for the 480.
I prefer the 560 especially this one http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
its actually faster than the 480 in some games.

I use the AMD 6850 myself, its ok - good. The sapphire 6850 is quite and is very good at cooling. but please do NOT get the XFX as it's cooling is not pleasant.

What motherboard do you have please ?
Crossfire X is different from Crossfire and SLI its to do with running the GPU linked with your Onboard graphics.

As some has stated, the 6950 2gb is your best choice. Definitely better than a crossfire setup.

Edit: As others have stated, you're better off going with a single $200 dollar card than two $100 cards in crossfire.

I'd also recommend the 6950 2gb if you can find it for $200
