Help in choosing the right graphics card !

Hi all! I want to buy a new graphics card. Here are my specs:
DG31PR Motherboard
Intel Core 2 Duo e4500 2.2GHz, one pci 1.0 slot,
4GB Ram, Corsair Enthusiast 550VX power supply, 17" monitor (1280x1024)
I know i have a low end system but i cant really upgrade it till 2013 because im studying engineering and dont have budget at all !!
I am quite confused about whether i should buy gts 450 or ati low-budget card (5570 or 5670). I cant really buy gtx 460 becoz of processor. Will my system bottleneck GTS 450? My budget is 130$ maximum...
I plan to buy a low budget card now and then wait till i graduate and then upgrade the whole system hopefully in the beginning of 2013... I will be playing Crysis 2, BFBC 2, DIRT, and NFS etc at 1280x1024 with good detail...
Sorry for the long post !! Please help.... Thanks...

    Thanks for reply. Will my mobo not support gts 450? Will it be bottleneck? How good is gts 450?? And about the budget, in my country cards are a bit expensive... I really play games occasionally and im not quite bothered to get even 30fps at 1280x1024....

    @sweet its ok! .....I buy my GTS 450 EVGA last 1 week ago and its really good i upgrade my 8400SE to GTS 450 EVGA and it gives me huge boost performance ican now play high settings.
  4. iur mobo wil support evry card but it wont be able to give the full boost to it... and ati 6 series is better than tha nvidia's gt 4 series... 6750 n 6770 are the best around dis budget... n abt being expensive try galaxy computers ;) its niew branch is open in pindi aur blue area main bhi hai aik jo whole sale pe daita hai ;)
