Hello,
I currently have a GeForce GT 220 which I find very unsatisfying, I'm looking for a card that can play new, high-end games (Crysis, for example.) I'm just looking to PLAY them, I don't mind having to tone down my settings to the lowest point.


Copied from my dxdiag:

I agree with the listed GPUs from papasito10 but I also would like to mention another factor. Vendor and manufacturer. A brief example - Asus usually requires a small price premium but their custom cooling solutions is quiet and cool. Asus cards are also very durable(using Asus cards for my past few builds). EVGA and MSI cards for comparison pack a higher clocked GPUs giving you a bit of extra FPS. Gigabyte cards' advantage is their lower price. I have used Sapphire (AMD exclusive) before and never had a problem. I still have a Sapphire Ati 9550 alive and kicking (keeping it as a memento). All this information is relevant to my own personal experience and from where I can purchase. Of course there might be different prices and availability from where you are going to purchase. And of course some other people might disagree with me having different experience with different brands. I was just sharing my 5 cents, hope you find it usefull.

They don't ship to where I live, sadly. And it costs 250$ in my local store.
