Upgrade from Gigabyte 9800GT Silent Cell

My Rig:
CPU - Intel i5 3570K
MoBo - Asrock Z77 Extreme6
GPU - Gigabyte 9800GT Silentcell
PSU - Cooler Master GX-550W

Would like to upgrade my GPU. 200$ is my budget. I am currently playing NFS Hot Pursuit and I intend on playing games like NFS Most Wanted when it releases.

    You have a nice CPU, and your motherboard supports PCIe 3.0.

    Your power supply should be able to power a SAPPHIRE 100355OCL Radeon HD 7850 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102999
  2. I agree:
    HD7850 or HD7870
    *make sure it's a 2GB model and NOT a 1GB model

    The following card is just above your price point but I thought I'd add it in as it seems a really good deal:

    The Sapphire linked above is an excellent card too. It's also overclocked so the performance difference between it an the HD7870 I linked might not be that huge.

    SUMMARY:
    HD7850 2GB (or HD7870 2GB on sale)
    *ignore old-gen GTX500 or HD6000 series.
