if u overclock ur cpu to 3.6 ghz then any card will go.but at that speed it will bottleneck just about any card.

At stock speed, the OP quad core is good enough to run any card today...

I agree with wa1,a Q8400 @ stock speeds can handle games fine(however in some games,OC'ng the CPU would give a good boost)

I would like to play the game at high resolution. I'm hoping I can get a card that can handle it at least standard performance with $200 budget.

Thank you,
