This is the bundle I'm looking at

Can anyone recommend a good graphics card that I can use with that motherboard that will be able to run games decently.

I would prefer ATI but could be convinced otherwise.

Also how does this monitor look

I apologize if this post is missing anything. First post ever. If you have any questions just ask.
Thanks!

Mmm I guess I didn't say this but I am trying to keep this build moderately cheap so are there any other cards that might still be good but more affordable?

Also if I went with that card wouldn't I need a new PSU?

500W will handle any 1 card set up.

6870 = 200
6850 = 150
5770 = 100

More you spend the better peformance you get so up to you :p

Well how much performance will I lose because the card is PCI Express 2.1 but the mobo supports PCI Express 2.0

I know it should still work but I was told that it won't work to it's max.

There isn't a performance difference between 2.0 and 2.1. 2.1 supports a large proportion of the management, support, and troubleshooting systems planned to be fully implemented in PCI Express 3.0
