my current monitor resolution is 1368x768 which i plan on upgrading to a 24 inch asus 1080p in the future. the only requirements are that the video card needs just 1 6 pin from the power supply as that is all my psu has. no preference on amd or nvidia. i want something that will be able to run the asus monitor in the future and my current monitor at the same time. any input would be appreciated!

if u have 4 pin molex u can also use adapter to convert it to a 6 pin connector, thus giving u dual 6 pin connector, that most gpu needed
around that price, u can get gtx 570,580 used, or 650ti/boost/660ti(used)
or the best for ur cash? 7850 2 gb and 7870/boost/xt
take ur pick~

if u only have 1 6pin connector, that might be some old psu? what psu is that and watt?

You can shop around, try and get an ASUS or Gigabyte GTX660.

The deals section of Tomshardware might have someone selling it for cheap.

660 is what i was leaning towards and the responses just solidified it for me. are the evga 660's good? my only concern with them is cooling does not look to be the best. i have a small case micro atx with one intake and one exhaust fan so im thinking i may need a better cooling solution on the card.

heres the 660 i was talking about
