I am really thinking about upgrading my video card . . .

I have the,
XFX black edition 260 GTX
Graphics Clock: 666
Processor clock: 1404
Memory clock: 1150 MHz (2300 MHz
Dedicated Video Memory: 896 DDR3

What would be the next upgrade from that, that's worth it and would make a notice able difference.

I paid about $180 for my current card and that's about my $ limit this time too, could I get a notice able difference better card with that amount of money?

Thank you for any help.

A GTX 460 would be a nice upgrade.

Go for the AMD 6850. Slightly faster than a 768 MB GTX 460.
