intense gamer? So save your money to get a BETTER card, $125 isn't enough to fulfill your intense gamer... :)

Yeah $100-$125 cards will neither have the power to deliver DX 11 main features like Tesselation.But games like GTA IV and cod 5 will run easily with max settings on HD 5670,its a labelled DX 11 card tho which means its a card with shader model 5.0 but not anything more.
For full fledged DX 11 I'd prefer HD 5700+/(GTS/GTX) 400 series for which you have to throw some xtra cash :(  .But wait you may have the GTS 450 in lyk $125-$130.

Forget about GTA IV; CoD 5 is not intense, get a 5770 and be satisfied with it.

umm... HD 5770 carries $150-200 price tag while GTS 450 fermi is around $130 with similar(in some games greater and in some lesser) performance

We still don't know what about the rest of OP specs...
HD5770 surely faster than GTS450, but seriously, with $125, i can't give any "intense" gaming card suggestions... :)

@wa1

yeah we must need to make sure whether these cards will fit his mobo or not.
You already know what level of games he meant when he said GTA IV,COD 5 (medium).He must have surely broken his head for "intense" lol jst joking don't think otherwise :p

Wait for AMD/ATI to launch the 6 series cards (its not too far now).. Till then, build up on your gaming intensity level(s) and gather some more cash while you are at it..

If it has a PCIe slot it will fit any PCIe card.If its a PCIe 1.x slot it will run any PCIE card except version 2.1.If it has a PCIE 2.0 slot it will run any PCIe card available out there, provided he has a big enough PSU and case.

There are both PCIE 2.0 and 2.1 versions of the 5770
The one I gave a link to is a PCIE 2.0 version.

yes both cards are available for 2.0 version so its done.I'm not gonna argue on ati vs nvidia if 5770 is within his reach or same price as 450 then I'd suggest that only

bt wat abt the PSU?

I still think crysis is uncrushable even 480 or 5970 won't succeed on ultra high resolutions.
Well if you want to buy a new mobo then the ASUS P7P55D Pro seems a decent one.
But... there are somethings you must know
with the release of i7 processors,mobo builders are spawning many new features like pcie 3.0,usb 3.0.
So I think it'll be wise of u to think abt a mobo next year and patiently use your GTX 460 in the stock value.Its a very good card,got a good record,and its also challenging the 6850 barts.
