Looking for a new video card, mine died and I get no more image from it
I had a radeon hd 4870 X2 2GB
My motherboard can accept any kind(pcie 2x) evga or radeon
I don't have 600+ for a top of the line anymore but I play modern game

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.

Doesn't care (/◕ヮ◕)/
i have a EVGA gtx 560 and it runs fine, paid a bit for it like a year ago, its probably down to less than 200 now.
I don't always play pump, but when I do, I prefer a rotor.....stay agg my friends.

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.

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.

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..
