I have a nForce 650i Ultra motherboard and a HannsG HG 281 DPB monitor (Recommended Resolution 1920 x 1200).

I am currently using a single GeForce 860 GTS video card; it does okay but I have been getting into gaming more and I would like something that could really make the games flow better.

I am looking to pay around 150 but would be willing to go as high as 250 for the right card.

Does anyone have thoughts? I was looking at GeForce GTX 260 (Core 216) but I am not sure it will be enough of an improvement; also there are so many video cards out there I don't want to overlook any.

Im assuming you have a 8600gts? gtx 260 is a huge step up. Well before we decide on a card can you give me spec of your rig ex cpu/ram/psu?

Can you give me the cpu model? And how much ram (memory) do you have? Do you know the exact model of psu?

Here is a card i would recommend for gaming. Support dx11 so should play future games and has decent power, equivalent to the 4870/gtx260.

This might be a silly question but does the SAPPHIRE 100283L Radeon HD 5770 (Juniper XT) differ from the SAPPHIRE 100283-2L Radeon HD 5770?

^The only difference is the fan set up for the cards. Get the 100283L if possible. It exhaust the air out the back while the other one exhaust it back in to case.
