If you had a 7850 or a 7870 and went to something like a used GTX 760, it's just not that much better to warrant the hassle for the price point.

If you have a 7850 a 270/270x would be an upgrade at about your price point, barring mining inflation. A 660 would be a minor upgrade to a 7850 on the nvidia side, or a used 760 would be a big upgrade if you found a deal on a used one.
New parts though, you aren't really upgrading them on the cheap, especially not a 7870. A better option might be xfire.
E: Also I saw you said your card wasn't working, if that's the case then still the cards I recommended, just ignore the xfire part. --- Every time I try to go where I really wanna be it's already where I am, 'cuz I'm already there XBL, PSN, Steam, Origin, BSN, GFAQs, MC: PhilOnDez

I believe it's a 7850. I know its 7800 series but I forget >_<
Any of the cards I listed would be a pretty big upgrade from a 7850. Definitely something you'd notice an improvement with. If you can get a 270x at $200-220 go for it, more than that though and I'd spend a few extra dollars on a 760. --- Every time I try to go where I really wanna be it's already where I am, 'cuz I'm already there XBL, PSN, Steam, Origin, BSN, GFAQs, MC: PhilOnDez
Just RMA your current card. I'm sure it's under warranty still. RMA will get your card repaired or they'll send a new one. That way you only pay like $5 to ship it to the manufacturer instead of $200+ on a new card. --- Divided by night...
