DETAILS

I bought a new monitor and I wanted to buy a new GPU that will be suitable for my system so I can have a very good gaming experience. Up untill now I've seen these GPUs that are suitable for my budget: PNY GTX 460 1024MB PCIe, ASUS ENGTX465/2DI/1GD5, GIGABYTE RADEON HD5830.Please give me more recommendations that will suit my needs and which one of the above is best or even if I should buy one of them. Also I definitely want the GPU to have an HDMI port so I can take advantage of my monitors HDMI port.

The 460 are better than any of you mentioned especially on DirectX 11 games, try RAID 0 your hard disk if you want a faster loading screen when you play :)

For 1920 x 1080 (1080P) gameplay I wouldn't do anything less than a GTX 460 1GB personally. :)  This is for both today's games, and for tomorrow's titles. You want something that handles everything out now very well, so it does tomorrow's stuff well too. And as far as DX11 gameplay goes, the nVidia cards have the advantage over ATI 5xxx series cards right now. :) 

Just about any newer generation card should have an HDMI output (usually mini-HDMI). Personally I use the DVI connector on my 1080P monitor still. Still gives me the same 1080P resolution. The HDMI just has advantage in providing audio to the monitor, which I could care less about. :) 

I like the:

Thanks for your reply, I finally decided to buy the ASUS model because I kinda liked its specs more than the MSI and because it was way easier for me to find it here at Greece
