I would check out the EVGA gtx 560 ti 2gb or EVGA gtx 660 ti 3gb.

I run a gtx 560 ti 2gb and it runs everything I've thrown at it at 1920x1080 + max settings. I'd like to think the 660 ti 3gb is a better upgrade..

EVGA gtx 560 ti 2gb runs about $250, excluding rebates.
EVGA gtx 660 ti 3gb runs about $350, excluding rebates, and comes with a free copy of Assassin's Creed 3 and / or Borderlands 2.

how much do you wanna spend?
If you're looking for a med-high end, look into the gtx 670 series. They're around the $300-400 range and quite the bang for your buck.

If he was running a 4870x2 then chances are he has a PSU capable of running mid-tier GPUs.

I have a 1000W corsair power supply
I want to keep this under 400$ and closer to 300 if I can
I don't really have a preference between Ati or nvidia, I used both in the 2 built I did and my last was from my friend preference.
My motherboard can run either and is ready for crossfire/Sli

The shop that built and changed my hdd when they failed not long ago told me I was lucky my radeon card didn't die already as they had a lots of overheat prob from the 4XXX series.
And it would be the next thing to break, sure enoufh 2 week later it gave up.

Yup, that sounds like a 4870x2 to me. I bought one when they launched and I have had issues with it ever since. The first one died on me and all of the replacements were either doa or failed soon after. Don't even get me started on the bad driver support.

I don't think you can go wrong with a 560ti, 570, or 660ti. The 580, 670, 680, and 690 are well over the $300-$400 mark and, imo, you start to lose on the price/performance.

Free shipping, 5% tax only and MIR...

7850 for $160 AR..
Gigabyte Radeon HD 7850 OC 975MHZ 2GB 4.8GHZ GDDR5 DVI HDMI 2XMINIDP PCI-E Video Card

Or 7970 for $300 AR..
MSI Radeon HD 7970 925MHZ 3GB 5.5GHZ GDDR5 DVI HDMI 2XMINIDP PCI-E Video Card

A 660ti could be nice too, but the price is too close to the 7970 to be worth it imho.

Look in there..
