8GB ram
650w cooler master gx psu
i7 - 870
mb stock (its a lenovo k320 that I put some new parts in basically)
radeon hd 5750
monitor: 23" Vizio HD 1080p tv
resolution: 1920x1080

This is a stock computer in a stock case that I upgraded with a new PSU and gfx card a few months ago. So overclocking is out of the question.

I'm looking for a card in the $100 - $200 range that will run BF3 (I know, I said it..), the new Elder Scrolls, and anything else coming out.

So I'm looking for a DECENT card that will run great not overclocked. (since overclocking in my case would be a disaster) - Just wanting to play games on medium settings and possibly high with some settings turned down.

I am gaming at 1920x1080 but if I cant get a card to play games at those resolutions I will turn it down to 1680x1050 to stay within my price range. Just want something to get me by decently until I can afford a killer card.

I was looking at this 6870:

Any help pointing me into the right direction would be awesome. Thanks!

HD6870 would be the minimum card! The GTX560TI's linked to above are though more powerful and worth the price premium after MIR.

Yes, HD6870 is a nice upgrade from HD5750, but you've said that this card is temporary, right? Why don't you wait a little bit and save some bucks to get a HIGH end card like HD6970 or GTX580/590?
