Hey guys, I need to buy a semi-decent GPU, ASAP, since my HD6850 just took a crap. I'm not looking to max many games right now, but I do need something to get me by until early next year when I will do a brand new build.

I would like to spend about ~$100-$125, $150 tops. So, what's the best card for the money there? I haven't been keeping tabs on the current cards so I have no clue whats what...

Also, I just bought AC IV: Black Flag and I was wondering how good it would perform with said GPU recommendation. Would it look better than the 360 or comparable?

CPU is an AMD X4 @ 3.4ghz
500 PSU
8gb 1333 RAM
1080p Monitor

ps, would it be a good idea to buy EVGA so I could possibly use their Step-Up Program when I do my new build in Jan.? Or, is there no good NVidia cards in that price range? I just want the best card in my listed budget range, I don't want to save up more for a higher performing card right now as I just need something to get me by until Jan.

Thanks in advance, guys!

I think the Nvidia GTX 650 ti is in your price range. AMD gets you a 7770 ($100 or less), 7790 (~$120 or less), 7850 (~$120 or less). I see a lot of rebates on Newegg which put 7850s for around $100 to $130.

I think the deals are with AMD right now. Nvidia seems to have less sales but I think they are selling off the geforce 6xx stock so deals will come for them.

Comparing a modern day GPU against the 360's is like comparing the performance of a Model T to a 70's Mustang. I guess :3

Could you link to me a good benchmark site so I can see how they fair against each other, I'm not sure where to look. Also, in your opinion which of those have the best price-to-performance?
