    This graphics card is equivalent to the one I have now that I found for you on amazon.

    I have this version made by pny http://www.amazon.com/PNY-GeForce-PC...6863673&sr=8-1

    It runs battlefield excellent and all games on high to max settings. Seems to be within your price range and worth checking into.

    I agree with Ahabraden, although I personally have never had a 560, I hear they are pretty good. Have a look at this site here:
    http://www.scan.co.uk/products/1280m...z-448-cores-2x

    This is the 1.25GB version, which I think ought to be better.

    In general if you live in UK or Ireland these guys are pretty damn good, they delivered my GTX680 to Ireland in 2 days.

    Edit:

    Here is another possibility for you:

    If its 200 limit then yes I agree a 560ti 448 core thingy.

    Was goin to suggest to wait a few weeks until the 660 is released but I read in many accounts that it isnt to show its face until Q3 of this year.

    If a 150 limit then I suggest a 6870.

    I actually wanted the 680 so bad. Just decided to save the money and get the 560 ti instead.

    Forgot to mention that I had to buya new power supply for the 680 making it even more expensive.

    I agree, the 560 is a great card, I currently have the 570 and it run Bf3 on High-Ultra setting with ease.

    For the record, you can get a GTX 570 for a similar price as the 560 448 Ti

    I'm planning on upgrading to the 560 by the end of the year. I have to pick up a new PSU as well. But I'm wondering how long it usually takes for the latest graphics cards to decrease to a reasonable price.

    Blacksite, I'm not sure exactly how long it will take for them to lower the prices on the 600 series, but you should try to keep an eye out for the 670 (or perhaps even the eventual 660). Even though its new, you can already get the 670 for about 320 (probably cheaper in US since you guys seems to always get better deals) and that card is pretty damn close in performance to the 680.

    But then again, if those 600s will start to get cheaper, you can be sure as hell the 500s will also follow. And to be fair games are not that demanding these days, and I really don't see anything coming out in the next year that the 560 will not be able to play at max or at least near-max settings.

    It's a great card but I don't think it can do Ultra @ 1080p in BF3

    Obviously but with his budget do you think he wants to archive that type of result?

    Nope...

    You can get an Ati 7850 2GB for under 200.

    http://www.ebuyer.com/349747-sapphir...d-11200-00-20g

    Or the overclocked version for a bit more:

    I have one in my Alienware X51, it runs BF3 on Ultra at 1080p nice and smooth.

    Although I think 560ti is a great card, isn't the 7850 better in performance (and within the price range)

    Also so far gtx670 is looking to be the best buy on the market. 90% performance of the 680 with $100 less cost

    Yup 7850 outperforms the 560ti. But keeping the price in mind, the latter is the best option.
