I don't know much about older systems but I would buy a gtx 560 gtx 570 or a 6950 6970 to choose wich, decide budget, brand loyalty, Xfire/sli, and the games you play(if you play all of them it will even out, but if you just play one or two look at the benchmarks)

GTX460(1gb), 6870, GTX560Ti, 6950(2gb)

In my opinion, the GTX460(1gb) is VERY nicely priced these days, given it's performance...

If you are looking for a decent graphics card I would recommend upgrade PSU 600w might run GTX460 single, I would feel alot safer on 850w or 1000w especially if I planned on going SLI

A 1GB GTX460 or HD6870 would be great for your resolution. The only trouble is, you've got a Chokemax PSU, not likely to be able produce much more than 60% of what's on its label. You'll need a quality 500W-550W PSU. Look for full range active PFC (no little voltage switch) and at least 80+ certification for efficiency. Seasonic, Antec, Corsair, XFX, and Enermax (Lepa=Enermax too) are among the better brands.
