What would be a suitable upgrade frome a XFX HD4770?
I am running a MSI-MS7309 motherboard with a AMD Phenom X3 8400 (2.1ghz) processor in it and 4GB's of Coarsair DDR2 800 mhz RAM (2x2gb each), a 500 watt power supply, and an XFX HD4770 video card. What would be a suitable upgrade from this card staying with all of the components listed? Same power supply, RAM, mobo and processor. I thank you for all responses.

whats your budget? I wouldnt really recommend upgrading the gfx card without upgrading your CPU first. upgrade to a phenom x4 or something. Otherwise if you upgrade to anything like even a midrange 6850 you will be bottlenecked by the cpu.
I'd say a 6850, but you wouldn't notice much of a difference because your CPU is generally more of a limiting factor than your GPU right now. Sadly the old phenom isn't much of an overclock either -_-.
