Pick an amount your willing to spend, and BAM, there it is, might wanna wait for the next chart to come out though, I think some new cards have come out recently that might shake up the high end cards, also, if you're using a resolution less that 1920x1080, there are a lotta sub/near 100$ (USD) cards out right now. Watch the deals.

More so if you haven't OC'd your CPU I'm not sure I'd get anything better then the 5570 or 5670. A stock x2 with 2GBs of ram isn't the best for gaming. We also don't have any info on the resolution. 5570 would be a good fit.

budget and resolution?

yeah, the 6850 would be too much.

a 5670 would be nice in there though. I wouldn't want to go any weaker than that, but it depends if you want to keep the cost down.
