I'm looking to upgrade from a ati HD4890, I was wondering if I can get some advice?

Budget: 200~

Current specs
8gb DDR3
Win 7 home pre
1tb WD black edition

Primary games I play
League of legends (not exactly intensive, I know)

I've tried looking around at a few different cards, I'm just not sure if it's a substantial enough upgrade to warrant the cost. Would a 7850 be a nice upgrade for the money? etc

To be honest, I don't see a ton of low frame rates with the 4890, but with all the nice deals on newegg and other sites this weekend, I figured it might be time to retire this 3year old beast. Also a good time since apprently ati has stopped support for my card in the past few months, and now they only push unified driver updates to the series.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Look for GTX 660 or 7850. Search which is better in your favorable gaming conditions.

awesome, I had been looking at the 7850, matched the price and /seemed/ to be a worthwhile upgrade, barring any other suggestions, I'll prolly pick one up.
