Help finding a good card for pro gaming.

Hey guys I need a new video card for my computer, right now i am using an ATI Radeon x1950 Pro.

I need a card for serious gaming especially for Bioshock 2.

I can get a BFG nVidia Geforce 8500 GT 512mb for around 45$ but i was wondering what you guys would suggest and i need help picking one out. My price range is anything below 150$

PC Specs:
Windows XP Home/ Service Pack 3
AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual
Core Processor 4200+
2.21 GHz, 3.50 GB of RAM

Monitor: 21" Widescreen

  1. if you're going to be a serious gamer...you might want to look more towards the $150 amount. here's a decent card for $149 aftre rebate (Ati 5770): http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102858

    anything past that card and your CPU is going to start to bottleneck.
  2. ^+1 for above mentioned HD5770.

    Its a nice card .

    Which PSU you have?
