Which graphics card to upgrade to on Striker 2 Extreme
I have the following system and want to upgrade my system to better handle modern games. Not sure if I will be able to play Far Cry 3 though and will fully upgrade to new rig next year but for now I want a nice cheap upgrade option.
Motherboard: Republic of Gamers Asus Striker 2 Extreme RAM: Crucial 8GB GPU: Asus Nvidia GTX8800 756MB PSU: Antec 650w
I have read a few forum post on here and a few suggest the GTX400 series to upgrade to.
I have been looking on ebay and am not sure what the going price for the following cards is second hand as they seem quite expensive for 2 year old cards. GTX460, GTX470 GTX480
Would I be better off getting an ATI/AMD card and if so what would a good option be (equivalent to GTX400s).
I was planning on going with an SLI rig with another GTX8800 card but left it too late so they are rare and stupidly expensive. I assume one GTX460 would be better than two GTX8800s right?
I have always had an nvidia so know nothing about ATI/AMD cards.
Your help will be most welcome.

4xx series cards are old and I wouldn't go with them at all. What's your budget?
I really don't know what budget I need to be looking at. I didn't want to spend over £50 but on ebay the GTX4xx cards are all over that. I don't want to go too much over £100 I suppose but under that would be better.
I will be looking at getting a 1k+ in about a years time so don't want to spend too much.
