Budget is around 200$, I can't go above 300$, at least I don't want to.

It doesn't need to be a big boost, but I can tell my GPU is starting to die on me, so I figure I best get proactive.

I was thinking something in the 600 series, maybe something in the early 700?

I do not plan to overclock, I just want something better than what I have now.

Do you plan on overclocking your cards?

If you do then:

$200: 7870
$250: 7950
$300: 7970

No overclocking:

$200: 7870 or gtx 660
$250: GTX 760

You could also wait for the following cards to release: x270(7870 XT for $200), x280(7970 rebrand), and GTX 750ti.

Thanks, I'd prefer to stick with NVIDIA, but only because of brand recognition. Are ATI cards really as bad as this board says?

No, part of the negative stigma associated with AMD dates back to pre-2013 levels. AMD drivers are actually good nowadays, and aside from a few CrossFire issues, AMD GPUs are better value than Nvidia GPUs (especially with game bundle promotions).

However, if you intend to SLI, Nvidia is more reliable. AMD may take the crown from Nvidia once next-generation console gaming kicks into high gear next year, as we wait to see what performance improvements we can expect from multiplatform games designed from the ground up on AMD architecture consoles.

They used be bad a couple of years ago but have improved a lot thanks to the newer drivers.

There have been some reports about Nvidia coming out with a few new cards soon, to match the new releases from AMD, most likely a 750ti and a 760ti.

Plus they may also lower the prices of the current cards to fit the new cards better in the market.
Mystery is the source of all true science.
