Question Need a video card...

I'm trying to find a video card that is Direct X11 compatible... I'd like to stay within the -180-220$ range.. I'd like to go with ATI because my motherboard is only crossfire compatible... But if i can get much better performance off of an nvidia card at this time I'd go for it... I play games like: ARMA 2, Metro 2033, Fallout 3... newer titles... etc...

I've been looking at this list: List Here

If you can find any HD 6850's in stock you should be able to get one of them for $180-200 or so. If you are willing to increase your budget to $240 there is a pretty god selection of HD 6870's available. Either way those two cards are the best options in you price range.

I second that... If I had the money, I'd definitely go with an HD 6850. I think Newegg had a few in stock last time I checked...

ATI Radeon R9 280 x2 Crossfire
ASUS Sabertooth 990FX
Corsair Vengeance 1866MHz 2x8GB
