Hello all, I was wondering if there are any video cards that would moderately preform better than the Radeon HD 4870 for around 200 bucks?

Here is a link to the exact card I own newegg Radeon HD 4870

So any suggestions? Or am I not going to find anything better for 200 bucks?

Your time is much appreciated!

I would suggest buying another 4870 and using them in Crossfire if you have an open slot. You're not going to get a significant performance upgrade by replacing that card but if you add another one I think you'll be happy with it.

My cousin has two 4890's in crossfire and his rig plays newer games pretty well, so I would guess 4870's would be pretty good too.
