I am almost done with my build, only the GPU left. I want to play mostly newer games Fallout 3, Bioshock, Wow, Farcry 2 etc. (not crysis) on good settings on a 21.5" screen.

My question is should I go with a 275 or a 260 or what? I don't really want to Sli or crossfire.

Here are some cards I was thinking about:


BFG 260


BFG 275


EVGA 280





Here is my build.

Mobo:

GIGABYTE GA-MA770T-UD3P AM3 AMD 770 ATX AMD Motherboard - Retail


CPU:

AMD Phenom II X4 945 Deneb 3.0GHz Socket AM3 125W Quad-Core Processor Model HDX945FBGIBOX - Retail


RAM:
OCZ Platinum 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Low Voltage Desktop Memory Model OCZ3P1600LV6GK - Retail


Any help and/or advice would be greatly appreciated!
Thank You!

is money an issue? if not get the 275, it will pair up nicely with the rest of your rig

Thanks for the reply.
It's not an issue if it is actually going to noticeably improve my performance. I just don't want to shell out the dough for minute differences that I won't even notice.
I hear the 275 is a very good card. On Newegg right now though the 280 I linked is the same price...
