Hello, I'm currently looking at a new graphics card as mine is now out of date I have a budget of around $200-250
Current GPU - GIGABYTE GV-R487D5-1GD Radeon HD 4870 1GB Current PSU - Rosewill BRONZE series RBR750-M 750W Current Mobo - Gigabyte P45T -ES3G Current CPU - Intel E8400 Wolfdale 3.0ghz Monitor Resolution 1680 x 1050 Dual Screen Windows 7 64bit 2x 2GB DDR3
I will most likely upgrade mobo and cpu in the future but thought I would start with GPU. Currently playing Final Fantasy XIV which is what this is mostly for. Currently get around 2200 for high benchmark. Any thoughts on the best GPU would be great.

around that you can look for 7870
I was looking at the 7870 but noticed most if not all 7xxx series are PCIE 3.0 unfortunately my mobo only has PCIE 2.0
edit: Just read PCIE 3.0 are backwards compatible. Does that lower performance at all?
