Hello, I was wondering what the best graphics card would be for my set up without bottlenecking. My setup is

AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 6400+ 3.21 GHz, with 4gigs of RAM

Power supply is a 550 watt

Currently using GeForce 8600 GTS

Any help would be awesome, thanks in advance.

P.S. My spending range is $300-400

ATI HD 5770 would be a good choice and will give you a huge boost from your current card

HD5750 is enough for your resolution, but HD5770 good for a long term, don't worry too much about bottleneck, you will see a HUGE performance boost from 8600GTS, just like Maziar said above... :)
