GMC H80 chasis
Lg 23inch tri def monitor

my budget $245 what would you guys recoomend should i get an amd card now and then maybe in the future get another amd card for crossfire or should i just a good nvidia card? it wil be used for gaming BF3 etc

Hello ashez, I think your are kind of confused here. All nvidia cards (from the past few years) have something called SLI, which is the equivalent of crossfire, so don't worry, if you buy an nvidia card you can always add a second one. Next, nvidia is already on their 600 series, the 570 came out over a year ago and the 670 came out recently.
Here are some suggestions for your price range:
GTX 660ti will probably be exactly what you're looking for (it's coming out in a few days)
MSI 7850 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

The gtx 670 is a little more expensive (400$) but if you can afford it, it really is great!

I'm assuming you will be gaming, what kind of games will you play and what resolution is your monitor?

I will be playing on 1920 * 1080 .Awesome thank you very much for clarifying this for me iamcacao much appreciated I will check out the price as I have a budget of $245. My board should be able to handle the new cards with no problems right? It says on my board thought that is only supports crossfire though...

I don't see why your board would only support crossfire, intel platforms usually support both crossfire and sli.

This is your board right? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... If so, I'm sure you will be fine with any video card.
I think your best bet will be to wait for the 660ti, it will be the absolute best mid range card! and it's rumored to be around your price point. We'll have more info on that soon. If you have any more questions, feel free to ask :)
