What resolution do you play at, it is imperative to the decision. A GTX460 would probably be good for you, but waiting less than a week to see what goes on with the GTX560 would be better.

According to Windows 7 I'm currently running at 1280 X 1024 if that is what you mean.

I suggest an HD 6870 or a GTX 470. These cards are powerful, within your budget and will still be fine when you upgrade your monitor and play up to 1920x1080 on high settings.

Personally, I recommend an HD 5850 (similar performance to a 6870) and a new monitor. Both can be had on sale after rebate for $270 total. $150 HD5850, $119 22" widescreen (1920x1080)
