Need a new card for Rift mmo

Current build:
500w antec PSU
Core 2 duo 1.8 that i CAN get to 2.4 if I need to.
8800GT 512MB
4Gb Corsair XMS
Win 7
Asus P5Q-SE\R
Resolution: 1920x1080p (tv)

I am looking at either a 5770 or a 6780. Nvidia is an option as well though. Any others I should be looking at? I havent looked at cards in awhile (as you can see at least 4 years :lol: ). I need to stay under $120 on the card. I realize I need to build a new box but am trying to get 1 more year out of this one. Right now I have to play on ultra low and even still I sometimes get to around 15 FPS. All this will play is Rift and maybe a few random games. Looking for a card that will run on medium-high settings.

Thanks everyone
