I'm looking to invest in a new video card. However, my monitor's max resolution is 1366 x 768, and for right now, im just fine with that. I won't be upgrading it for awhile. Most benchmarks today start as resolutions much higher than this. i'm wondering what a good card would be for running today's games at high settings at this resolution. Thanks!

Best solution

Something for $80 like the HD5670 would be fine but even at that resolution better cards can make a notable difference. If you want something reasonably priced that will max out pretty much every game for now and last you a good long while I would recommend the HD5770;

Anything more than that is mostly a waste. If you really want overkill perhaps a GTX 460 768mb but that is the most that makes any sense.
If the HD5770 is out of your price range and you want the best performance for the money on a cheap card then you won't do better than this HD4830;

Before deciding on any card though tell us the rest of your system; cpu/ram and most importantly the power supply.

I was trying to stay under the $100 mark, but Ive heard great things about the HD 5770. my apologies, I'll have to upgrade my PSU, for its the stock 210w that came with the pc. i have 3 GB of ram, and a Pentium dual core CPU E5200 @ 2.50 GHz (2 CPUs)

I would also agree with the 5770,for the price it's great and it should nearly max out every game you play at that resoultion.If you cannot afford the 5770 the 5670 is the next best choice.

Yeah, if your PSU is 210w you'll have to upgrade it for any real video card.

The HD4830 I linked is both significantly faster and significantly cheaper than an HD5670.

Sorry, didn't see you posted that.I believe then the 4830 would be the second best choice and then the 5670 as the third.
