You can pretty much upgrade to any card but HD7850/70 comes to mind as a good match with the CPU. What PSU do you have make and model since it will be the deciding factor?

A GTX650ti or HD7770 can give you good performance at 1920 x 1200 in most games.
A GTX660 or HD7850 will give you excellent performance at 1920 x 1200 in most games

With that no problems! I would aim for HD7870, R9 270X or something similar even GTX760.
