The ATi Radeon HD 5870 is the best card that has a 500W PSU minumum. It's a great card, enjoy! :sol:

aight guys, i have $500 budget, monitor resolution 1680x1050 to 1920x1200 (1680 more likely) Definetly not SLI or CF plan, just a powerful single card.

For that budget, GTX580 ($500) or GTX570 ($350).

Edit: Sorry, I forgot about your power supply, the 580 needs about 650 watts. The 570 needs 600 watts.

For your budget+PSU I think HD6850/HD6870 is more suitable...
That would be enough to maxed out almost anything at 1680x1050.
