GTX 560 Ti, GTX 470, or HD6950 1GB if you want a single GPU in that price range. All 3 will deliver good performance.

If you want the absolute best performance for $200 though, GTX 460 1GB SLI is the way to go, period. Performance will be 10-20% faster than a GTX 580, depending on your overclock and the specific game. However, you would need at least a 600W PSU to SLI with GTX 460s.

guess we are talking about differnet prices here.
Where I live (Israel) 560 TI cost minimum 280$.

So can you please get lower cost GPU for me?

Interesting. What exactly can $200 get over there? 6870?

Not even that.
I say 6850, really sad.

But if 560Ti is a much much better I would consider it.

What do you say?

You are in a dilemma here.

for bf3, both your current cpu/gpu are the limiting factor. even if you get a new gpu, how much performance gain would you get with that cpu?

but if you do one step at a time, yes gpu.

if the 560 ti is out of your budget, look at the 6870? they are around 20-30% cheaper then the 560 ti, but not that far from performance.

If even that is out of budget, look at the 5770 or GTX 460

6870 because 560 Ti, 6950, and 470 are all usually above $200, plus the 470 runs hot.
