I want to buy a new VGA card for my desktop so I can play this year games comfortably, I don't want to pay more than
180$. My motherboard is the Intel DP35DP, CPU: Q6600, RAM: 4GB DDR2 800MHz, Windows 7 64-bit is installed and I currently have a 7300GT 512MB VGA.

Thank you for your suggestions

How big is your screen?

Probably looking at a ATI Radeon 5770 at that price point. Here's some reading to help you even further:,...

You can check out for relatively lower prices on graphics cards (compared to places like best buy or retail outlets)

My screen is a Samsung LCD 20" (2033SN PLUS) with a resolution of 1600 x 900. Based on the link 'aberchonbie' posted, I think the Inno3D Geforce GTS 250 1GB DDR3 is enough for me.
Thank you

The blurbs in that article about resolution use adjectives that greatly overstate things imo. The GTS 250 will be good for your resolution but not great. I would recommend the HD5770 or at least an HD5750 so you have a DX11 card. If you don't want either of those the HD4850 is usually cheaper than the GTS 250 while offering similar performance.
