So! What's a good Graphics card upgrade from the one I have currently?

Two 7850's aren't really doing it for me.
Is there something in the Nvidia line that'd be just as good as these two? Preferably one that's not in the 500 dollar range?

Not really. You can see if you can get a 780 on ebay or something.

Shopping for Graphic cards on Ebay sounds iffy though.

If you get a 770 and overclock the daylights out of it maybe.

Wait for the new AMD cards though. The latest rumors have the flagship as a 2816 shader beast.

I was actually looking at 770's earlier today.

When do they come out though?

A couple of things i wanna say:

the new Amd series cards are going by the 8 thousands right? Like 8850 and what not?

And second, the physx from the nvidia cards is really tempting me. The urge to play Bl2 with physx on at 60 fps is starting to get to me. That and 3D (Which is why I was looking at 770's earlier)

If Physx and 3D are important to you a 770 would work but I don't think it would be that much better than what you already had unless you would get another once more demanding games start coming out.

Edit: Yeah I guess I'm out of the loop they'll be called Rx 200
