I am looking for a graphic card that can support my PC. Here are the specs:

AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 4800+ at 2.50 GHz
4GB ram
NVIDIA GeForce 8600 GTS
550 W PSU
Motherboard only has 1 PCI and I used my 8600 GTS on it.

I am looking for a graphic card that can good performance in gaming on 1680 x 1050.

since you have a pci-e port basically your only limiting factor is your 550W power supply which should be high enough to support almost any 1 graphics card. i recommend one of the higher end Nvidia cards like 9800 GTX or 260 GTX but also ATI has a new series out (5000 series) that is supposed to have better prices than Nvidia for very high end cards.

What's your budget? I'd go with ATI because their cards currently run cooler and are more efficient than their nvidia counterparts. I'd go with 5750 or 5770 right now.
