GTX 460 or HD 5850(if your budget allows), however your CPU may bottleneck it in major titles.

I'd recommend Radeon HD 5770 for low end gaming Nvidia GTX 460 for mid-high end gaming and a 5850 for high end gaming.

I would recommend either the GTX 460 1GB or the HD 5850.

i would recommend :

Intel i7 980X
Cooler Master V8 (Allowing i7 @ 4000Mhz
3 x GTX 480
Asus Rampage MoBo
1200W PSU
12Gb DDR3 @ 2000Mhz

How About that???

Lol wut? HD57xx series are mid-end cards, GTX460 is high end.

Anyway, on topic.

Get the GTX460 and OC your CPU. OC'ing the CPU will remove the bottleneck it causes.

You will still be fine with your CPU at stock speeds and you can play games fine, however in some games your card won't run at its full potential.
