APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: Some time in July, worst case in August

USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Some gaming like GTA: IV and MW2, Home Theater/Blu-ray, Video Editing

CURRENT GPU AND POWER SUPPLY: ATI Radeon 4200 (Integrated Graphics) with a Corsair 450W PSU (This one)

OTHER RELEVANT SYSTEM SPECS: AMD Athlon II X3 435 Rana 2.9GHz (enabled ACC for the 4th core), BIOSTAR A785G3, G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600

PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: newegg.com COUNTRY OF ORIGIN: US

PARTS PREFERENCES: Prefer ATI, but I'm open to Nvidia too

OVERCLOCKING: NO SLI OR CROSSFIRE: No

MONITOR RESOLUTION: 1366x768, 19in

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: I just want it to run most games in high settings, nothing too special. Is DX11 that much of a big deal? if not I'm fine with going with the old Radeon HD 4000 series gpus or Nvidias last generation gpus as well. I just want a cheap and decent gpu. My budget is $150, if need be I'm willing to go up to $200 but only it the gpu is really worth it.

A 5770 would be a huge leap in performance for you, should easily max out anything at that screen resolution.

So any 5770 will do? Just out of curiosity, would I be able to max out, or at least play high on Crysis with a 5770 at my screen resolution?

Not max, but you can definitely play it on high, my 4850 can handle high at 1280x1024 and the 5770 is a bit strong than it.
