A GTS 450 would be about the most you'd want to pair with the X2 4600+. Even that will bottleneck a fair bit, but at your resolution it shouldn't be too bad. Barring that, a 9800 GT or GTS 250 would be a pretty good match as well. TBH, the 9800 GT would probably be the most suited to your CPU and the cheapest of the lot.

Get something like a 9800gt, or 9600gt (better match for your cpu). The ATI equivalent would be the 4670.

actually the Nvidia equivalent to the ATI 4670 would be the 9600GSO

the 9800GT and ATI 4830 offered similar performance, the 9600GT competed against the ATI 3870. a more modern card would be the ATI 5670.

I really meant the ATI equivalent card that he should look for, not the exact match.

If we're being totally accurate, one would suggest the OP be extremely careful when buying a 9600 GSO, as there have been 3 different versions with wildly different performance. The best one is a good competitor for the 4670, the others are trash. It's a lot easier to say 4670 = 9600gt as Nvidia didn't rebrand the 9600gt over and over.
