Graphics Card For New Gaming Rig

Hi,
I Just Built a New PC And Dont Know What Graphics Card to Get For It.
I Will Be Playing Games Like GTA IV, COD Black Ops / World At War, Etc. On MAX Settings If Possible
What Would Be A Good Graphics Card For This Spec PC And Any Other Recommended Upgrades?

Specs:
CPU: Intel Core i7 930 2.8Ghz
Mobo: Gigabyte X58-USB3
RAM: 12GB Apogee DDR3 1333 (3x4GB Sticks)
PSU: Corsair TX750W
HDDs: 1x 500GB WD5000AVVS (O/S Drive) 3x 1TB HUA721010KLA330 (Storage Drives)
O/S: Win 7 Pro 32-Bit & Win 7 Ultimate 64-Bit (500GB HDD In 2x 250GB Partitions)
Case: CoolerMaster HAF 932

Current Graphics Card Is A Zotac GeForce 8600GT 1GB DDR2 (Left Over From Another PC)

Graphics Card Will Be Running 2x LG 24" L246WH Monitors At 1920x1200 Res. For Video Editing And Music Software, Only 1 Monitor Will Be Used For Gaming.

Thanks,

More about graphics card gaming
  1. if you are using Adobe premiere CS5 better you go with nvidia solutions
    If you couldn't pay for Quadro graphics you can buy a Geforce GTX 580 or 570
    cause that software uses i think CUDA Cores for MPE
    **NOTE: Since you want Gaming you better not go with Quadros 'Cause with them your Gaming experience would not be good enough
  2. Budget?

    Most Of The Time I Use Use Sony Vegas To Edit Video,
    Would A GTX 580 Or GTX 570 Run GTA 4 And COD: Black Ops / WAW On Max/High Settings?
  5. get 560ti...
    nice card and if you can wait till 29nov...
    448 core gtx 560ti will be out..
  6. I think your software also supports AMD GPUs as well.
    And for your gaming yes it could.
    But nvidia 560 ti or 560 ti 448 ( coming soon ) not bad for your budget.

    Too costly over there...
    If google is correct..:)
    UK£ 170 = 265.99900 U.S. dollars

    See this:
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127565
    You will get at 224.99 but In mail in rebate..
    original 244.99 still cheap..:)
  12. @rockxdude: Your Welcome :)
    and I agree with rockxdude on your budget, thats pretty good.
    I think there are some ways to hack Adobe premiere ( in case you switch to ) to enable your card using MPE also
    Just in case: http://www.studio1productions.com/Articles/PremiereCS5.htm
