How about a nice SPARKLE GeForce GTX 275. It's a great performing card at that price. It even beats the HD 4890 in most tests.

Ha, I was just about to post up a GTX 275 but Atomic's suggestion is cheaper with the same stats. Good find.

Noob, that'd be a great video card. I'd order it in a heartbeat if I needed a new one.

Basing my suggestions off of THIS, I would just get a Core 216 and overclock it. You will get the around the same performance for a lot less. You're probably going to be a couple of frames off, or dead even with the 275.

I agree with Rohan, just because you have $250 to spend doesn't mean to have to spend all of it. The GTX 275 is $70 more expensive than the GTX 260 Core 216/HD 4870 1GB and not a lot faster.

We can do that no problem.

Make sure you get the Core 216, and not the 192.
