Upgrading graphics card AMD Radeon HD 6800 Series

APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: Preferably this within one week

BUDGET RANGE: 300-500 $ dollars (roughly 2000-3500 sek, swedish kronor)

USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Gaming. I would like to play new games that are released today at the highest possible settings for my computer.

CURRENT GPU AND POWER SUPPLY: (e.g., EVGA Geforce GTX 560TI and Rosewill Hive 650W PSU - without this info, it's really hard to help you)

My current card is, as you can see in the title, a AMD Radeon HD 6800 Series. I have a 500W power source.

OTHER RELEVANT SYSTEM SPECS: (e.g., make/model of CPU, MoBo, memory - this can help us determine whether or not a given card is compatible with and makes sense for your system. For high-end cards, knowing your case/cooling setup may also be helpful)

I am using ASUS P8Z68-V which has a PCIe 2.0 16x slot where I have my current card. It also has DDR3 and 4 * DIMM and max 32 gb memory. I have a Intel Core i5 2500K 3,3 GHz Quad Core.
I also have a total of 8 gb RAM.

Here are links to the specifications if you want to now more about my motherboard and processor

PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS:

I prefer webhallen.com because there is a local store nearby

COUNTRY OF ORIGIN:

Sweden

PARTS PREFERENCES:

I do not have any preferences when it comes to graphics cards, I guess I prefer the ones that work? :P

OVERCLOCKING: Yes / No / Maybe SLI

I have never overclocked any of my previous cards, so I don't think i will overclock this one. It's not a necessity is what I'm trying to say

OR CROSSFIRE: Yes / No / Maybe

Not sure what this means :P

MONITOR RESOLUTION:

1920x1080

If you could help me find a graphics card for my I would be so happy :) Thank you!

    What brand and model is the power supply? How many amps has the 12V rails got? Need this info to be able to suggest a graphic card.

    Assuming that your power supply isn't good enough then i would suggest this:

    My power supply is a Silver Power SP-SS500 500W PSU
    ATX 12V V2.2, 80 Plus, Standard, 1x 6pin+1x 6+2pin
    PCIe, 6× SATA, 120mm Fan
