I have a built desktop that has an Intel Core i5 3330 CPU, a GTX 560 SE graphics card and an Asus p8b75-v motherboard. I want to upgrade my graphics card to a newer, faster one. But I would also like it to be a good price for me (200$ or lower). I will be playing Minecraft, Bf3, MMOs on medium to high settings and recording them for gameplay videos on youtube. So which one would be the fastest and compatible with my CPU and motherboard? Thanks for reading!

A 7870 ghz edition/R9 270x would probably be the best card for your budget. You should be able to pick up a 7870 ghz cheaper than a 270x and they perform quite similar
Heres a 7870 ghz edition, but it is currently out of stock, most of them are

If you cant wait, but still under budget
R9 270

or R9 270x which is basically an overclocked version of the 270

That's also out of stock, though

I would say get an MSI Radeon 270x for around $200. You can get it cheaper now with boxing week sales. But you may experience bottlenecks with that cpu on bf3 multiplayer 64 players. But thanks to mantle Cpu bottlenecks will soon be history.
