i have an acbel 660W psu. I'm thinking its a gpu bottleneck issue but i'm not so
sure. The game runs ok with 8xAA max video setting @ 1440x900 but it only
averages @ 30fps. I want to run it @ 60 fps solid. Any suggestions?

I think a GTX260 or a Radeon 4890 would do it. Radeon 5770 is also a popular choice.
You wont need anything more powerful than those for that game.

Would 4870 vapor-x be an equivalent as well??

It's GPU issue. I was running the game on a E5200 2.5gig dual core with a GTX 260 216 shader and maxed it at 1680x1050. Bench mark said I was getting 45ish frames on average.
