I'm interested in getting a new graphics card for my system, but I'm on a budget. I'm currently running an AMD Radeon HD 6450, but I need a better one. I'm looking for a card about $100-$200 in price, but any suggestions will help.

 

My question: If I want good gaming graphics (not top-notch) and to be able to perform renders and create CGI animation, what price range am I looking at for a graphics card? If you made a particularly good purchase in this price range, what card did you buy?

 

Thanks,

VeritasQuo
