Upgrade Confusion

Hello all. I hate to be that guy that asks about simple stuff like this but I need your guy's opinion on what graphics card I should get. I bought my PC about 2 years ago, threw in a new graphics card last year it's a XFX AMD Radeon HD 6850 black edition 1GB version. I does decent but I recently got Far Cry 3 and Crysis 2 and I'm starting to see it lacking. Technology advances very fast when it comes to computer components so I'm not really surprised. I want something in the $250 price range. I figure that's enough money to get me something decent. I want something that will max games like Crysis 2 and Far Cry 3 at 1080p decently. I also want to be ready for Crysis 3 and other up coming titles. I can also go SLI or Crossfire as my motherboard supports it. I'm willing to upgrade my PSU if necessary as well. I'll post my computers current specs below, please let me know if there is anything else I can upgrade to further better my cause. I've been watching all sorts of reviews and looking at all kinds of products and I just can't decide.

My PC Specs:

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
AMD Phenom II 6X 1100T 3.30Ghz Processor
8GB DDR3 RAM (Corsair Vengance)
XFX AMD Radeon HD 6850 black edition 1GB version
Seagate Barracuda 1TB Hard Drive
ASUS Motherboard (Crossfire and SLI ready)
Ultra 550watt power supply

Thanks guys!

with $250 you can buy GTX660 or Radeon 7870. I prefer GTX 660 because many game i play won in benchmark. Just choose between those two, either way will not disappoint you
