Need help! Choosing the right Graphic Card for my PC

Hello guys,

First time posting on this forum. I was wondering if you guys can help me on choosing the right graphic card for my pc. I'm currently using GF 8400 GS 512mb ddr2 and I'm going to buy a new one this week asap. I'm looking for at least a 1gb ddr3 card that is compatible with my mobo and is less than $80.

CPU: Intel Core i3 CPU 550 @3.20GHz
GPU: ???? (currently using Nvidia GF 8400GS)
MOBO: Asus P7H55-M PRO mobo
RAM: Corsair 4GB DDR3 1333

Also guys, I love playing Eurotruck Simulator, NBA 2k15 & COD modern warfare and I heavily use my computer on Autocad and 3D's max as part of my work everyday. Can I run these games in very high settings on a 1gb ddr3 card?

Thanks a lot in advance! :-)

    I'm not sure how prices there compare with the states, but the GT 730 is about the best you'll do for under $80. Be sure you get the 64 bit, DDR5 version for best performance. DDR3 is older, slower VRAM, and the 128 Bit version uses a slower GPU. Here are some examples: http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=100007709%20600519936%20600007799%20600007797&IsNodeId=1&bop=And&Order=BESTSELLING&PageSize=36

    Here's a quick comparison between the 8400 GS and the Gt 730: http://gpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Nvidia-GeForce-8400-GS-vs-Nvidia-GeForce-GT-730/m7917vsm12582
