So I will most likely be getting a new 22" or 24" monitor soon and will be shopping for new computer parts after the new year. I currently use this video card -

It's been a great card, treated me well, but I'm looking to upgrade being that I'm going to get a bigger monitor. For my system specs, I currently run an IntelCore Duo E6300@3.01GHZ, a PSU800, and a nForce 650i Mobo. I'm looking to spend around 150-200 on a card, any advice would be appreciated.

HD 4870, HD 5770 or HD 4890

HD 4870 = HD 5770 < HD 4890

HD 4870 < HD 5770 < HD 4890

Benefits of HD 5770:
1. DX11
2. Consumes roughly 80w of power compared to 120w of the HD 4870.
3. Quieter.
4. Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD MA (bitstream audio) over HDMI
