Looking to replace AMD Radeon R7 200 series | 300-400€ budget (ROI)

I'm looking to replace my graphics card in order to widen the range of games i can play. The games I'm looking to play are planet coaster and snake pass on medium settings at a smooth frame rate. My budget is around 300/400 euro to replace the graphics card but as I've very little knowledge of pc parts I understand that it might be necessary to spend more money on other parts.

My current graphics card is an AMD Radeon R7 200 series model, although I'm not sure exactly which model. My mobo is an asus m5a78lm- usb (3.5gHz) and I've got 8gbs of RAM. My power supply is an Antec 620W Atx 12V v2.32.

Ideally I'd like to order from amazon.co.uk , newegg or any other European retailer but they must deliver to the Republic of Ireland as that is my country of residence.

If anyone has any suggestions they'd be greatly appreciated. ANd any additional information needed I will supply.
Thanks In advance :)

  1. Your CPU is...? Use a program called Speccy to find out which CPU and R7 200 series you have. You look to have a power supply capable of supporting any card you choose, so that's good.

    Cheers,
    According to speccy my CPU is : AMD FX-6300
    Vishera 32nm Technology
    and my graphics card is:
    2048MB ATI AMD Radeon R7 200 Series (XFX Pine Group)
    and after searching for its device ID it is found to likely be a AMD R7 240
    Thanks for your help :)

    With a 63xx series CPU I'd go with something like an RX 470 or 570, whichever costs less. At Amazon UK they seem to start around £170, not sure what that is in euros. From what I've seen, Planet Coaster would probably be the one to stress the computer the most. So I'd do some searches on the combo of FX 63xx and RX 470/570 and that game to see what kind of performance you can expect.

    I can tell you that even an RX 460 or GTX 1050 would be far, far better than a 240, so you should be pretty happy when you upgrade.
