I'm going to buy the graphics card for my new build and I have absolutely no idea where to start. I'm looking for a graphics card that is around 200$ and a can do crossfire/SLI with it. Thanks for everything in advance.

I suggest the same as above, Sapphire HD 7850 2GB.

I dont believe you should spend more than $200 for an HD 7850 because with $230 you can buy a GTX 660 which is better (and with $250 HD 7870 which is even better :p  ), so stick with the Sapphire.

I've got a lot of recommendations for the GTX 660. Would it be a significant increase in performance between the 7850 in crossfire vs the GTX 660 in SLI?

You're gonna sli/crossfire right away or later on ? I mean if you're gonna sli now it's better to get a higher end single solution than the sli way.

660 is better than the 7850.

7870 is a bit better than 660 and will drop in price maybe, when that one becomes cheaper or same price than the 660 that is the better choice then.

Difference is now $10, so . . . ( cheapest 7870 $240, cheapest 660 $230 )
