I need to upgrade my 7800 series radeon card under $200?

Any suggestions?

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.

I believe it's a 7850. I know its 7800 series but I forget >_<

Look at the G3D mark scores for the price for performance. As said above, 270X / GTX 760 will be in your range, if not a bit higher. Honestly, it's worth it to scrounge together another 25-40 bucks.

It seems the 270x is the only one I can find locally around that.

I just want to make sure it's at least the same quality as the one I had.

It is. It's slightly better.

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.

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.
