    Default New graphics card.

    I'm looking to upgrade my graphics card, and seeing im not that tech savvy with the graphics cards what would be the best card i can could get for about 240 euros - 330 USD?

    Atm i have a gainward 430 gt 1024mb ddr3 card. which i bought temporarily as my sli 8800 cards died on me for some odd reason.

    Any suggestions? (only looking for a single card)

    Here's a good site to look at. 500 series GeForce looks like your best bet, as you had Nvidia beforehand.

    Can you link the rest of your PC's specs? What seems to be the problem that is making you think you need to upgrade your GPU?
    I was able to run this game on mostly ultra with shadow down on a 9800 gtx+. My average FPS in open world raids was 40.
    I have an i7-930 clocked at 4.2g with 4g of ddr3 ram.

    buy ATI radeon 6950 and flash it with 6970 bios so your 6950 becomes 6970 which will save you like 50€
    Its the ultimate choice for your budget

    I say save up some more money for a GeForce GTX 580
    If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge,
    and if I have a faith that can move mountains,
    but do not have love,
    I am nothing.

    Unfortunately that doesn't really tell us much. Without actual specs like if you have a free PCIe x16 slot, what the total watts and amps are of your power supply are, how much you have to spend, we can't even begin to make real recommendations. Plus, with you in a different country, prices are going to spike differently than they do elsewhere.

    You may want to look at my site. I'd recommend a 3 star or higher card that would fit in your budget.
