With all the sweet pc games (RAGE, BF3, etc.) coming out soon, I decided its time for some upgrades on my PC so I can play them . I haven't played any pc games in a while, lets say the last games I enjoyed on the PC were Half Life2 and Counter strike source. Yup It's been a while / darn crappy Xbox/. I build a system a few years ago, not having pc gaming in mind.
here are my system's specs:
CPU: Intel Core i5 750 w/stock cooler Mainboard: Gigabyte P55M-UD2 RAM: 4 gigs of OCZ Gold DDR3 1600 (2x2gig) Graphics: HIS Radeon HD4670 512MB HDD : 1x 500Gig WD Black Edition Power Supply: BFG 550Watt
no overclocking, all stock/auto Bios settings. I really don't want to upgrade the CPU/MOBO.
So here are my questions, would a graphics card upgrade be enough? Which graphics card under 200 bucks to get? Should I overclock cpu/memory a tad bit?

For under 200 bucks: It's definitely between GTX 560 and 6870
Your CPU should be able to handle them fine at most of the games at stock
