I'm currently upgrading my PSU and also looking for a GPU to upgrade my system. I get recently a new monitor and i want to use it with the oldest. I also interested to play games with decent graphics without getting a bottleneck.

My system specs are:

Processor: AMD Phenom II X4 955 BE 3215 MHz
Mainboard: Gygabyte M68MT-S2P
RAM: Kingston 4GB DDR3-1333 x 2
Budget: 200 USD

I appreciate any advice you can give me.

^ That's not really within $200.

You could go with a Radeon HD7850 and a new power supply for that price.

This power supply should be able to support the card. It has been used in many system build marathons here on the website.

Ive found that my 7950 3GB + x6 1055t @ 3.8ghz match well together. I play at 1440p though.

So I would agree that the 7850 + x4 955 should go well. At 1080p the 2gb vram on the 7850 should be plenty.
